The house is part of an historic progressive community, Skyview Acres, which has been home to many locally and nationally prominent people. At once close-knit and all-embracing, Skyview was one of the first suburban communities in the United States to welcome members of racial minorities, and it has continued to grow and prosper for nearly 75 years in a spirit of open-minded cooperation and volunteerism. The entire community (115 acres with 48 homes) is part of the National Land Trust Association. The community is abutted to the south by 75-acre parkland and to the north by large family-owned farm. In total, these three properties contain about 600 acres of permanently undevelopable land.
In addition, you can enjoy endless hiking, biking, and swimming in nearby Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks (50,000 acres). Or take your family to the Skyview spring-fed pond. Play softball or soccer on the Skyview ballfield. Come home and enjoy the spacious outdoor deck, fire pit, and hot tub.
