Handsomely situated high on a ridge, the River House is a contemporary-style cooperative residence located on 14 acres in historic Peekskill, New York. Overlooking an intimate and quiet neighborhood of single-family homes, as well as the legendary Hudson River, all who live here enjoy a safe, scenic and beautiful environment in which to reside. The River House is a premier property without equal throughout the Hudson Valley and has often been hailed as one of Westchester County’s most desirable and sought-after co-op residences.
From L-shaped studios to two-bedroom duplexes, the 213-unit River House is comprised of three buildings, one high-rise with a Penthouse Level and two that are low-rise. All contain spacious apartments that are light and airy, with floor-to-ceiling glass sliders and terraces that offer extensive views of the surrounding valley, mountainside, and its treasured river, depending on the appointment of apartment residence.
Resort-like in many ways, recreational activities are plentiful and even include a suitable playground for young children, barbecue grills–just perfect for an upcoming birthday or anniversary celebration with family and friends.
More than this, home ownership at the River House is not only affordable but value-packed, especially when compared to condominiums or townhouses elsewhere in the region. It comes as no surprise that a large number of people who live here are longtime residents, having first moved here when the complex originally converted from a unique rental property to an even more unique cooperative residence.
Astutely operated by an elected, seven-member Board of Directors, and managed by REM Residential, River House has a solid cash reserve and no underlying mortgage, two significant considerations when applying for a private home loan.
At the River House, you will find friendly neighbors from all walks of life, including schoolteachers, corporate executives, healthcare professionals, private business owners, and city employees, among others. It is also a perfect fit for small families just starting out in life, as well as retired seniors who have, perhaps, downsized from high maintenance, single-family homes to more carefree co-op units at this Hudson Valley oasis.
That said, almost everyone who lives here applauds the River House for affordability, resort-like atmosphere, well-maintained buildings, park-like grounds, convenient location and, most importantly, its financial soundness, which rates as one of the best in NY State for a co-op complex of this type.
