About 39 Woods Road, Palisades, NY 10964

Perched on a rocky ledge and terraced into the natural landscape of the hillside overlooking the Hudson lies a stunning, romantic home. Originally built of local stone as a Block House under the command of General George Washington as a post to guard the Hudson against the British, it was re-built in the early 1920's by Literary Digest editor to BP Adams and won an award by the American Institute of Architects and House Beautiful as most beautiful home east of the Mississippi. The surrounding property is full of large, beautiful, mature trees and one can listen to the Washington Spring as it flows through. Although the Block House has accommodated famous owners and guests from the world of art, music, literature and industry; it remains timeless as an enchanting property composed of solid, humble materials reflecting the simplicity of the nature that surrounds it while mirroring the culture and creation of its inhabitants.
