Breathtaking glass, wood & stone modern villa on 12 acres. Cantilevered on a 200' granite cliff over the Hudson. Gourmet kitchen. 10' screen media room. Huge deck, Jacuzzis, steam showers, sauna, hot tub, pool, tennis. 70 mile views. Total privacy.
An architectural masterpiece set in nature's most stunning creation. As magnificent as any European locale yet only 1.5 hours from NYC. One of the greatest estates built in the Hudson Valley in modern times. A private oasis constructed of the finest materials: Limestone, beechwood, electronic lighting controls & more. Its vistas are brought inside through floor-to-ceiling 10' operable glass throughout. Whether staring at the river with its leisurely ships floating by from every bedroom, the hot tub, the salt-water pool (seasonal) or the great room with its huge fireplace, you will enter a state of meditative relaxation never thought possible so close to Manhattan. The only house visible from the villa is FDR's Birthplace & Summer White House, now a national park and Presidential Library.
Dine (or take mini-courses) at the Culinary Institute of America, also visible across the river from the villa or any of the superb locally-sourced restaurants in the area or cook your own meal from ingredients bought at the world renown local farmer's markets.
Explore the Hudson Valley, with every imaginable site less than 45 minutes away - from antiquing to apple picking to Robber Baron mansions to skiing. Or stay at home and play tennis on the lighted court (seasonal), swim (seasonal), hike the grounds, entertain on the expansive deck, relax in the hot tub or one of the 3 Jacuzzis, 2 steam showers or 2-person real lava-rock sauna. Play ping pong, air hockey, play music, play video games, watch movies on a 10' high-definition screen. Stroll or sit in the private sculpture garden or do nothing at all & still feel like you've got it all.
