This New Home inspired by the original style of the vintage 1908 dwelling (now guest house) is part of a 100 acre estate , sits atop a sweeping lawn at the crest of the Hill over looking the Hudson River and Storm King Mountain beyond. The residence is in the Shingle Style, with a touch of Colonial Revival symetry and porch detailing. It is subtle yet majestic, with 11 foot high ceilings and deep wrap around porches. The porches are essential to the views, creating a transition point, and giving a human scale to the great outdoors. Large bay windows afford wide open views to all the Western River views, yet are classically detailed.
The interior of the First Floor is casually elegant, with rooms seamlessly flowing into one another, while still allowing each room its own sense of place.
The Second Floor has a dramatic Master Bedroom with a wall of bay window glass, and its own private porch, while the childrens area share a beautifully appointed two story library off their bedrooms.
