Classic Tarrytown house on half-acre hits market for $1.23M

1939 build shows promise despite some ill-advised remodeling

Pretty much any house in Tarrytown—and especially one built before 1950—is going to garner interest when it’s put on the market. This one, built in 1939, features a stone veneer, pier-and-beam construction (of course), and a half-acre lot, which is huge for that part of town—or, rather, a lot that size that’s not mostly house is a rarity.

The one-story home measures 1,700 square feet and features wooden floors, stainless appliances, recent paint, and large master bath. There’s generous deck in back for enjoying your large plot of land, as well as what looks like a storage shed and possibly a defunct hot tub.

As the listing states, it seems to have "endless possibilities"—which, of course, is another way of saying it needs some work, or at least some updating (and maybe could be expanded if a buyer desires that).

That could include releasing the enclosed sunroom back into the open, changing some floor surfaces, landscaping and porch painting, maybe some refinishing here and there. What it will definitely include (unless a buyer with very, very specialized tastes) is remodeling the two bathrooms. (It also has two bedrooms, which look fine). One is all pink and blue tile and includes a pink vanity and sink as well. It’s a look that we kind of like, but most people don’t. The master bath, though, is the true tour de force, looking like it was inspired by Tron, The Matrix, a Robert Mapplethorpe photograph, or some combination.

But who knows? Maybe it’s the geometrically themed retreat you never knew you needed.
