About 1550 RIVER ROAD

Wedding Present Farm. This stately Georgian Colonial was erected in local brick in 1910 to maximize views of its elongated Hudson River shoreline & distant prospects of the Berkshires. Wedding Present Farm (73 ac.) is set amongst a string of storied Manor Houses & River Estate Farms south of Albany that articulated life for prominent families. It borders conserved land, including the 330 ac. working farm at its northern border (once owned by the notable lawyer, merchant & agronomist Edward Townsend Reed). The House with Cupola at the south was owned by the proprietor of Knickerbocker Ice. The house proudly displays classical architecture in over-sized & high ceilinged Public Rooms admitting light at both ends, centered on delicately carved fireplaces & enjoying oak floors. Exterior Porched Entrances are of classical Grecian styling & columned iteration, either using hand-carved volutes or Corinthian capitals. The River Doorway, Foyer & Staircase are of an equal prominence as the Front Entrance. The bookcased Living Room (29'x17') yields through french doors on each side of the carved fireplace to a large columned South Porch with a brick breastworked fireplace that connects to the Postern. Above it, a large roofed Terrace is accessed by french doors from a Bed Room. The Dining Room (29'x17') is expressed by high raised panel wainscotting, a carved fireplace mantel with classical motifs & oak floors. The adjoining Kitchen Dining Room (19'x17') is fireplaced & is open to the North Porch & the Kitchen (24'x12') & Butler's Pantry with marble countertops. Second story Bed Rooms, Baths & Hallways are amply proportioned. The Master Bed Room is 31' x 17'. The Third Story Ball Room (40'x25') has two facing fireplaces & wide board floors. Architectural whimseys & conceits applied by the noted housewright Mr. Selkirk are far too numerous for further enumeration here. Ancient & stately specimen deciduous & nondeciduous trees grace the grounds, including the massive tuliptree near the South Porch. Ancillary dwellings include a 3400 s.f. Tudor-styled Guest House & two other 3 bedroomed Guest Houses. These are supported by 3 barns, garages & fields. The driveway penetrates Entrance Woods & 2 Ponds. The Pool is to the North. A wood road runs from house to the included 42 ac. Shad Island. More land avail. Handy to Albany, MA Pike & Shore Towns.
