Buy New York City’s Cliffside ‘Pumpkin House’ for $5.3 Million
If you close on this historic, three-story Manhattan home by the end of October, you may be the owner of the priciest Halloween display in the neighborhood.
Built in 1925 and dubbed “The Pumpkin House” because it looks like a jack-o’-lantern when lit up at night from across the Hudson River, 16 Chittenden Avenue is its own free-standing, cliffside home. The 3,144-square-foot two-family building also includes a separate one-bedroom basement-level rental unit. The first floor includes a living room, dining room, library, kitchen, and balcony; the second floor has five bedrooms and two bathrooms; and the sub-level apartment boasts a living room, balcony, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. There’s also a roof terrace, which wraps all the way around the building. Speaking of which, it’s the vistas that make this property so appealing, as it has panoramic views of Northern Manhattan, the Hudson, and Palisades, as well as of the George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridges.
The unique property also features a garden and two-car garage. (Trick-or-treaters are not included.)
The asking price is $5,250,000. For more information on the listing or to contact an agent, click here. Take a visual tour of the home below.
