The 1890's circa Greek Revival is part of the National Historic Registry and nestled on 15+ acres in the town of Clermont. Over its long history this home has been well maintained but now is in need of repair. New plumbing and heating systems are required as well as a new roof and interior restoration, however, the electricity is on and working in the house and in the 3 out buildings. Restoring this incredible historic home could be a dream project and a showcase that is easily viewed from the county road it sits near. Could potentially have commercial usage because of its visible location.

    I’m going with the National Register date of c. 1850.

      The floorboards alone make that more likely. Lots of really nice potential here. Would that narrow tiny brick chimney be original? It looks too small to do much good.

        The small brick chimney could have been for a wood burning stove at one time. It wouldn’t have been for a fireplace, and it’s possible that it’s original, but it’s too hard to tell from the photo. The cinder block chimney was probably for a stove too, but would have been a later addition, I believe.

    1850 seems like a good estimate of the construction date – it’s definitely after 1844 from documentation, and 1850 is about as late as high-style Greek Revivals were built in the area.
    The property here was part of the vast Manor of Livingston from the late 1600’s. Because of the quality of design and construction, the house was likely built by the Livingstons for a trusted employee, although the original resident is unknown. The name Coons House comes from a later resident, farmer Jacob J. Coon (1803-1880). The house deserves professional restoration – I’d hate to see what some weekenders from Brooklyn might do to it!

    Across the road is the 1860 Clarkson Chapel, a Gothic Revival structure that was part of the Southwood estate owned by a Livingston daughter. The landmark Clermont estate on the banks of the Hudson is just west.

    Ah, Kelly, you beat me to it again! : ) So glad you posted this one, and thanks also to JimH for including all the Livingston information. Clermont is a well-known local landmark. If anyone decides to visit, don’t miss Frederick Church’s breathtaking Olana just a few miles to the north: https://www.olana.org/
