Significance: This superb 1824 temple-fronted house with fine Federal details faces the Hudson River. Edgewater was constructed for John R. Livingston, one of ten children of Judge Robert and Margaret Beekman Livingston, also made his home along the river on land that had been part of the extensive Beekman patent, and later, the Livingston estate. Edgewater was enhanced by the addition of a library, conservatory, and outbuildings by the noted architect Alexander Jackson Davis in 1854 for his patron Robert Donaldson, Edgewater's second owner. The house is one of twenty-one contiguous estates on the east bank of the Hudson between Staatsbrug and Tivoli, New York.
