This fabulous country estate boasts quite possibly the best views in the Hudson Valley. The 5,500 square-foot contemporary is perfectly sited to enjoy spectacular views from every room in the house. From one side, sweeping views of the valley to the Catskills. From the other, close-up views of the Taconic range. Surrounded by farmland on a quiet country road. The spacious first floor features a grand master suite with walk-in closet and luxurious bath, a circular living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, formal dining room, a gourmet kitchen with family room, all opening onto the mahogany deck spanning the length of the house. The lower floor mirrors the footprint of the first, with 2 bedrooms, full bath, circular media room/living room, and large family room with kitchen, and walk-out to grounds. Just 2.5 hours from NYC, and a short drive to Hudson and Hillsdale. Additional land with barns available.
What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
This home truly commands some of the best views in the Hudson Valley. One feels on top of the world here, with glorious views from every window in the house, back and front.
For whom is this house perfect?
This property would really appeal to folks looking for an escape from the city, as either a weekend or a full-time retreat. It is very spacious, and would be great for a family with kids, as downstairs there is a huge media room/family space with extra kitchen. Parents can retreat to the first floor where there is a large master suite.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
The coolest thing to do is to walk right down the driveway to the Harlem Valley Rail Trail, which runs from Wassaic to Chatham. Here is a link to the map. Very close by as well is great organic shopping at Random Harvest in Craryville.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
It’s not that old, built by the current owners in 2003, but they have had a wonderful time there raising their family and perfecting the property. The owners designed the house to accommodate a large family and, of course, to let the views rule!
