Hauntingly Beautiful Hudson Valley Mansion Asks $3.5M

Set on 16 acres of private woodland an hour’s drive from New York City with stunning views of the Hudson River, this unique castle looks like it is right out of a spooky Halloween movie. It’s definitely a treat on the market and is now listed for the first time in 45 years.

Located in Garrison, New York and built in 1881 as a summer getaway for William H. Osborn, noted patron of the arts and president of the Illinois Central Railroad, this historic two-bedroom, one bathroom home is perfect for a couple or family looking for a taste of the scenic beauty, culture, and superb local restaurant scene of the Hudson Valley. However, don’t be fooled, with 10,518 square feet of space and porches on both sides of the house, there’s plenty of room for the whole family, guests, and creative renovations.

For those with a love of the outdoors, the property sits next to a 100 acre protected forest preserve filled with wildlife and hiking trails, serving as the perfect escape for suburbanites and city dwellers alike. With fall colors in full swing and Halloween a couple of weeks away, it’s only fitting that a stately Transylvania-esque home could be yours for $3.45 million. Wouldn’t it pair nicely with jack-a-lanterns and spider webs? There’s only one way to find out.

Melissa Carlton of Houlihan Lawrence has the listing, which with a little love can be a home you want to hang onto for decades.
