There is a collection of stone houses built by Elisabeth Farrington Stevenson that occupies a mile of land in the village of Croton-on-Hudson. The socialite spent nearly 40 years designing and creating these homes with the help of her son, Harvey (who designed Croton-Harmon High School) and the stonecutters who built the Croton Dam.

Now, one of those 20 or so stone homes, built in 1917, is on the market. Constructed for Farrington Stevenson’s well-known artist friends, the home’s history and craftmanship are sure to impress. As you enter the gates, you’ll be met with not only the striking structure but an outstanding view of the Hudson River.

The 100-plus-year-old home boasts hand-laid stone and hand-carved cornices that couldn’t be replicated even if you tried. Although the property will always possess its historic features, it has been maintained and refurbished with modern details.

The home’s grand living and dining rooms are perfect for large gatherings that will inevitably flow between the rooms. The wood floors and fireplace create a cozy ambience, while the expansive windows not only allow ample light but remind you of the picturesque views that live in your backyard.
