Welcome to Old Acres. An Onderdonk is believed to have built this house in the 1700’s. The extreme East and West ends are the oldest portions, and perhaps were once two separate dwellings. Both have the original beamed ceilings and oversized fireplaces with cranes used for cooking. Original wide floorboards are in most of the house, some as wide at 26″. The main part of the house was built about 1829. Sitting on over an acre, this graceful home has 6 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, 2 kitchens, one with a vintage Chambers gas range, 5 fireplaces and 5 dutch doors. Original details everywhere. The rooms are generous in size, each with distinctive character and charm. Bonus legal 2 family for potential income or use how you wish. Spacious in-ground pool, detached 2 car garage with loft above. A timeless treasure. Come along on a tour with Circa Houses’ Elizabeth Finkelstein and Cristiana Pena.

Bill Batson gives a resonating voice to the lives, the history and the architecture that make our Nyack community so extraordinary. Bill’s Nyack Sketch Log weaves the disparate threads of past and present lives into our shared story of Nyack, which will unite us all for generations to come. There is something enchanting about reading the secret histories that are tucked away in plain sight. Over a century of love, quarrels, art, dreams, fame and revolution linger behind the picturesque corbels and shutters of our riverfront town; and Bill Batson reveals these secret histories to us, one fascinating,vividly illustrated tale at a time. Thank you, Bill, for giving such a profound gift of story-telling to your community, and for preserving for posterity what may have otherwise been lost.
