26 King's Road, Highland Falls, NY

Welcome to historic Overlook, a charming cottage-style home nestled on 2.26 acres of park-like property, once owned by JP Morgan. This is where Billy Joel found inspiration, penning his classic "New York State of Mind" from the second-floor bedroom. Stepping onto the sprawling Gatsbyesque patio, with its daffodil-dotted lawn overlooking the majestic Hudson River, it's easy to imagine how this breathtaking vista stirred the soul of a musical legend.

The main residence, a 5-bedroom is a 4-bathroom country retreat. The property was originally conceived as an elite yacht club by Morgan. A massive double sided fireplace between the oversized, high-ceilinged living room and massive sun-drenched sitting room highlights the bones of the home and adds to its timelessness. Situated on the original foundation crafted by world renowned architects Peabody and Stearns, this home stands as a testament to their skill and vision; its bricks carry the history of the original structure. The sumptuous, heated, inground pool powered by a salt water pump is flanked by a generously proportioned deck. Sitting adjacent is a lovely pool cottage replete with one bedroom, a full bathroom with a free-standing clawfoot tub and a proper kitchen for poolside entertaining. The property also boasts a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom carriage house with a garage, added in 2020 for modern convenience.

Purchasing this property isn't just acquiring real estate; it's becoming a custodian of a unique riverfront legacy spanning from its Gilded Age of JP Morgan ownership to its rock and roll grammy winning lore. Joining the ranks of those who have walked these grounds before, you'll inherit a pedigree unlike any other—an opportunity to contribute to its storied history while creating your own chapter in its illustrious tale.
