This charming, historic home majestically echoes Rhinebeck's colonial past. Built by Thomas Edgerley, a founder of Rhinebeck Savings Bank, this Civil War era original has been upgraded and expanded by local master craftsmen in one of the finest restorations in the Hudson Valley.
Its Greek Revival Corinthian columns surround one of three new mahogany porches. The front entrance is through a brass-plated colonial front door into a formal foyer.
The main level offers an elegant, eat-in kitchen that features a breakfast bar, coffered ceilings, white marble counters, custom cabinetry and commercial-grade Wolf range and hood. In addition, there is a Subzero and two additional refrigerator drawers. The kitchen opens via French doors to a rear porch that overlooks the gardens and pool.
The light-filled dining and living rooms have ceiling heights that vary from 9-11 feet. The living room features a working, marble fireplace. The first floor also features a music room with coffered ceiling and elegant paneling; a cherry-paneled den with gas fireplace, wet bar and wine cooler; and, two bathrooms (one full with tiled shower). Unique plaster wall treatments in these rooms were done by a local decorator to enhance the original decor.
The second floor has a light-filled sitting area that leads to a master en suite with walk-in closet and master bath that features radiant heat, a double vanity, glassed-in shower and soaking tub. In addition, there is a guest suite to the rear, two additional bedrooms and a hall bath and laundry.
The mechanicals, wiring and most plumbing have been totally updated and central air has been introduced to the home. The exterior siding has been carefully replaced along with the addition of insulation and all the thermal pane windows are custom made to preserve the historical integrity of the residence.
