This Celebrity-Owned, Palisades, New York, Home Hits the Market

Built into the cliffs of the Palisades with extraordinary views of the Hudson River is this circa 1920s stone house. Fully restored and expanded, it is on an extremely private, fenced, 2-acre parcel with an electronic gate and an in-ground pool overlooking the river. Once owned by Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols, it is listed by Richard Ellis of Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty

French doors from the living and dining rooms open to long stone terraces that face the water. Stone steps lead to the lower-level lawn, built into the rock face and beyond to the yard, flower garden, pool area and great lawn.

Evoking the feeling of Provence, the residence is just 25 minutes to Midtown Manhattan. With a sophisticated, French Country feel, this is an important 20th century property. Built by members of the Tonetti family, pioneers of Sneden’s Landing, that raised the bar for the arts, the home features brick and wide-board pine floors, hand-hewn beams, four fireplaces and a guest cottage.
