About 79 Balmville Road

TWIN OAKS, a graciously appointed manor home built in 1918 by Linda M. and John A. Staples, was originally a country estate in the quietly elegant hamlet of Balmville, New York just 60 miles north of Manhattan. Located within a stone's throw of the Hudson River, this grand dame embodies the beauty and grace of Hudson Valley living at the turn of the century. Situated just one mile from the historic Powelton Club, a social hub of the area offering golf, tennis, swimming, event space and private dining, this home is ideally located only minutes from Newburgh's historic waterfront, restaurants and marina. Four stone pillars greet visitors before they ascend a sweeping wooded drive to the welcoming main entry of a true center hall colonial with a magnificent staircase imported from the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston. Massive front and back doors allow a view into the well manicured landscaping, inviting garden and expansive lawns, which could easily accommodate a swimming pool. One of the most noteworthy characteristics of this comfortable home are the lavish public spaces, including a 29 x 17 dining room and 29 x 18 living room, both with sumptuous original fireplaces. An elegant study off the living room and an eat-in chef's kitchen featuring exposed brick both highlight period fireplaces and offer intimate spaces on the main level. The second floor primary suite includes a stunning fireplace, abundant windows, sitting and office areas as well as two spacious dressing rooms. Four more bedrooms, a laundry and an intimate back staircase leading to the kitchen offer flow and efficiency for busy life styles. The back gardens and stone patio are easily accessed through the main hallway of the home or through an ample informal entry room and staging area, which offers plenty of storage and an indoor grilling station, all designed for effortless entertaining. In addition to the spacious detached three car garage, this home offers a full basement and walk up third floor with significant storage, work space potential and possible future expansion. This delightful property is just minutes to Metro North in Beacon, I-87, I-84 and buses to NYC. Easy to get to and you'll never want to leave, this exceptional property would excel as a full time residence or weekend getaway, with plentiful culture, dining, hiking, boating, apple picking, wineries and antiquing opportunities nearby.
