A well-known cliffside home in New Jersey is back on the market with a reduced price.
Adorably known as the ‘pumpkin house’, the home located at 16 Chittenden Avenue on 186th street is well-known for it’s unique exterior, and the fact that it hangs over a cliff. The fun name comes from the fact that it glows orange in the sunset, and at night the lit windows make it look like a jack-o-lantern.
Built in 1925, he three story,six-bedroom, three-bathroom home is just north of the George Washington Bridge on the Hudson, and features a gorgeous original marble mantle fireplace, roof terrace, hidden garden, floor-to-ceiling windows, and panoramic views of the Hudson River. The property also includes a one-bedroom apartment on the lower level, if your in-laws need a place to crash.
As you can see from the photos the interior is full of old New York charm, and at $4.25 million (a price cut from the listing price of $5.25 m last summer), can you really afford NOT to snatch this property up?
I know the answer is probably yes, in fact, not many people could afford the pumpkin house in all its glory.
If you are going to buy in Manhattan though, you should strive to acquire something unique, and this property is nothing, if not unique.via ]
