Charming, spacious and meticulously maintained colonial house overlooking the Hudson River in a peaceful country setting yet within commuting distance of New York City.
Special Hudson Riverfront Colonial house built on wooded bluff with spectacular views in a unique private setting, only 90 minutes by car or train from New York City. Mountain biking, rock climbing, summer and winter hiking, boating, The Culinary Institute, world's longest pedestrian bridge spanning the Hudson River, Roosevelt and Vanderbilt Homes, four colleges and village of New Paltz are all less than 20 minutes away. Approaching on a long uphill private drive you enter this house through a gracious foyer leading to a formal living room with giant brick fireplace, formal dining room, and large modern kitchen and family-room adjacent to the pool, deck and garage, all connected by a 50-ft deck overlooking the river and vast woods beyond, the view forever protected from any construction. Upstairs are a master suite with its own balcony overlooking the pool, huge walk-in closet, dressing area, and large bath with bidet, then two other full-sized bedrooms overlooking the river, an additional office/bedroom with kid's sleeping loft and laundry room. Downstairs are an enormous walk-out basement game room with its own deck and the same beautiful river view as the rest of the house. Blue stone paths and terraces built naturally into the terrain surround the house, the entire property protected from violent weather by 50-foot trees and a natural stone ridge. The Hamlet of Highland, untouched by modern chain store growth, is 2 miles away. Close to gyms, churches, schools and shopping. Metro North and Amtrak to Grand Central are 15 minutes away in Poughkeepsie, and Newburgh International Airport is 45 minutes south on the New York State Thruway.
