This charming early 19th-century home with Federal-style architecture sits on a sprawling 12-acre estate on the Hudson River in upstate New York.
The house was originally designed by the French architect Pierre Pharoux. A grand Greek Revival front porch with pillars provides elegant curb appeal.
Filmmaker and Oscar winner James Ivory and his partner Ismail Merchant purchased the home in 1975 for about $105,000 and patiently restored it over many years.
The interior of the house is filled with furniture and mementos from Merchant Ivory films, and is influenced by the many periods and cultures with which Ivory has become fascinated.
