CROTON, N.Y. -- Located deep in wooded Croton-on-Hudson, surrounded by Blueberry Pond and Teatown Lake Reservation, a beautiful Colonial offers tranquil living in a nature-friendly neighborhood.
1515 Journeys End Road, built in 2001, offers over eight acres of property on a nature preservation and education center, known as Teatown. The reservation features over 15 miles of trails and includes an organization of educators and conservationists who work to conserve biodiversity, teach ecology and promote nature-friendly living. Teatown also boasts annual celebrations that are open to the public, including the Hudson River EagleFest. The avian celebration takes place each February when winter conditions make eagles easier to spot as they search for prey along the Hudson River.
Wildlife is present year-round on the home's property and offers incredible viewing options for bird and nature watchers alike. It's easy to take in backyard views from the large, living room window, or by stepping down to the dock on the house's private lake. "This great escape has a fitting street name in 'Journeys End Road,'" said Nancy Kennedy, listing agent for Houlihan Lawrence. "You feel very comfortable inside and can take an adventure through the home's backyard woods whenever you want."
Among the home's impressive property, 1515 Journeys End Road also features a stunning interior. With four bedrooms, four bathrooms and over 5,000 sq. ft. of living space, this home is ideal for a modern lifestyle. The first-floor features a formal living room, opening to a private terrace and a large two-story family room with a wood burning fireplace. "This home has the ideal layout for today's lifestyle, combining an open floor plan with traditional entertaining spaces," said Kennedy.
When the weather gets too cold for visiting the property's private dock, residents can grab a bottle wine from the renovated wine cellar and choose a movie to watch on the second-floor home theater. "Entertaining guests is made easy, both inside and outside of this home," said Kennedy.
