The mansion is Georgian in design and built on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River. The mansion was originally situated on 80 acres (32 ha) of land that once included an orchard, formal garden, and a working farm. Upon Schuyler’s death, the land including the mansion were split into several lots and sold. The mansion passed through several ownerships and alterations made until acquired by the state in 1914. The Schuyler Mansion is open to walk-in visitors from mid-May to October (Wednesday-Sunday) and by appointment from November to mid-May (Monday to Friday).
