The home is situated near Hamilton Park, named for General Alexander Hamilton, and is close to the site of the historic duel in 1804 between Hamilton and Vice President Aaron Burr. (Burr shot Hamilton, who was transferred to Manhattan and died 36 hours later.)

The house took 2 1/2 years to build, and because of its cliff-side location, required driving pylons close to 50 feet in the rock to stabilize the foundation.
