Overview

West Point House Rental Photos and Description

3 BRs + Den, 2.5 Baths, pool, far from city rush, yet an easy commute to NYC

Beautiful post and beam home with spacious deck overlooking private pool and spectacular, pristine view over 5 houseless miles and over the Hudson River. This home is perfect for singles, couples or families. Relax around the pool by yourself, take in the view from the deck or watch your children and friends enjoy the chance to run in the grass, swim, and have a great time. Owner can install a guard railing under the existing railing if needed for small children.

The house is perfectly located for people who need to commute to NYC or friends and relatives to come visit. It is an hour and 15' by car from the city; trains run hourly from NYC to Cold Spring and back and take the same hour and 15 minutes plus a 12 minute drive to the house. Cold Spring village, 12 minutes away, offers charming shops and excellent restaurants. The Hudson Valley Shakespeare company puts on delightful shows under a tent looking over the river.

The first floor has a fully equipped kitchen -- dish washer, microwave, toaster oven, etc. -- with a counter that opens into the dining room. The dining room opens into the living room, both of which have floor-to-ceiling windows looking over the woods and miles of wooded hills and on over the Hudson River Valley, with not a house in sight! The dining room opens onto the wrap-around deck. Also on the first floor is a half-bath and a den with a pull-out couch.

Upstairs is the master bedroom (BR#1) with a queen bed and a second bedroom (BR#2) with a queen bed and three twin beds and a full bath.

Downstairs is a private suite with a bedroom (BR#3) with a king size bed, a door out to a quiet spot and the pool, and another full bathroom. Also downstairs is the washer/dryer.

The house is designed for seamless indoor/outdoor living. The spacious deck has a picnic table with umbrella, lounge chairs and bench seating along the entire perimeter. The stairs down from the deck lead to the pool.

The pool is an irregular oblong shape and blends in beautifully with the surrounding countryside because of its shape and grey color. With additional seating and a grassy area, the pool enjoys the same gorgeous view as the deck. A flower garden in front of the deck adds to the beauty of the area as does a small rock garden beside the pool.

On the other side of the house is a grassy area with room for badminton, as well as the parking area.

When you are ready to venture beyond the house, there are many options! Shopping, restaurants and movies are nearby; the quaint downtown of Cold Spring with antiques, restaurants and more is only 12 minutes away; there are multiple areas for hiking, biking, kayaking and golfing; museums in the area include Boscobel (with a summer Shakespeare festival), Dia, and Storm King Art Center. Children's activities include SplashDown Beach Water Park and the Taconic Outdoor Education Center.

About Penelope Pi-Sunyer

We have owned this home since 1985 and have enjoyed many cozy winters and hot summers with our friends, daughters and grandchildren. We have been renting the house for part of the summer for the past 10 years and would be pleased for you to enjoy it, too!

Penelope Pi-Sunyer purchased this house in 1985

Why Penelope Pi-Sunyer chose West Point

We bought this house for the beauty of the house itself, its proximity to NYC and its truly picturesque setting. We can escape the heat of the City in just over one hour and take a dive into the refreshing pool. Our children and grandchildren love to visit. When we can tear ourselves away from the house, we love to visit the many wonderful sites and activities nearby.

What makes this house unique

We are very secluded in this house. After driving up the driveway and down the hill, the house sits perched on a hillside and the view of the valley is spectacular. The house's simplicity and beauty is a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the city. But the amenities of Cold Spring village are nearby.

Extraordinary Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed almost two months from mid-July - Labor Day 2013 at this beautifully maintained house in a breathtaking setting. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and generous with their home, and were enthusiastic for us to make it our home for the summer with our children. The house itself is warm and inviting, filled with light, a fantastic kitchen, every bed and bath item you can think of, down to the bug spray, and a fabulous deck to lounge on and view the unbelievable hummingbirds and flowers every morning. The hammock was a favorite spot, as was the beautiful pool. We enjoyed the adorable town, and the ease of location to get to places like Dia Beacon, or hiking, though we were most happy staying home and enjoying the peace and beauty of the house and its property. Any difficulties or questions were easily and quickly remedied by the lovely owners. I cannot recommend this rental property more highly. We are looking forward to returning to this wonderful place that felt like home, and was difficult to leave!
