The solid construction of yesteryear meets stunning modern décor in The Stable, this unique architectural treasure in Tappan. Handcrafted antique mahogany and bronze gates welcome you to landscaped gardens leading to the c.1860 renovated stable, set back comfortably from the road.


High ceilings and original woodwork lend a NYC loft feeling to this Tappan home. Quirky touches, like a woodstove alcove that’s open to the great room, create an artsy vibe. Photo by William Geddes

Inside is an impressive great room comprising the living and dining areas. Big windows, 11’ ceilings, and a white color scheme keep the interior light-filled and airy. Skylights, a stainless-steel and granite kitchen, and high-end appliances and utility systems let you live cozily in surroundings that are reminiscent of a city loft. Throughout the home, however, are reminders of the building’s horsey past: an original hayloft door opens to a Juliet balcony off the master bedroom, while the rest of the house features original wide floorboards, weathered barn doors, vintage Dutch doors, and reclaimed barn wood for antique charm.

A walkout lower level has rugged stone foundation walls, a family room/studio, laundry area, and lots of storage; add in Tappan’s walkable downtown, and its location just 14 miles from the George Washington Bridge, and you’ll gallop over to snag this property.
