Orson Welles and his Snedens Landing cottage

The legendary actor and director Orson Welles once called a waterfront Tudor-style cottage in Snedens Landing, in Palisades, N.Y., home. Now, that stone cottage is in contract after being listed at $2.25 million by Richard Ellis, of Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty.

Welles lived at 55 Woods Road in Snedens Landing while he was working on “Citizen Kane,” according to the New York Post. Later on, John Steinbeck moved into the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home.

The 1920s property sits on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River and includes 2.4 acres. It features three fireplaces, leaded glass windows and a slate roof. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
