I am a landscape architect who grew up on this property. I currently live down the hill from the Carriage House and have spent most of my life along the Hudson River. I would be happy to let you know all the insider information about the Valley and steer you to the best farms and farm stands, restaurants, movie theaters ( including a drive-in) and any other activity you wish to pursue.
This property has remained unchanged since the mid nineteenth century when it was first developed by a Robert Livingston. When you come here you are able to relax and experience nature as it was experienced back then within the comforts of a modern home. If you are a birder you will thrill with the sights of our resident Bald Eagle couple, or our flocks of native Wild Turkeys. Other birds that are in residence include Great Blue Herons, Hummingbirds and Red tailed Hawks. We keep miles of paths mowed for hikes through out the property. Pick up a picnic lunch at Otto's Market in Germantown and have a picnic by our waterfall or in our old orchards.
You are down a gated half mile private road that is only accessible to you and the owner. Outside the home is comfortable porch furniture and Adirondack chairs on which to relax or finish that book you have wanted to read. We provide wi-fi and a flat screen tv if the weather should keep you inside along with more old fashioned pursuits such as board games and books. Air conditioned for the summer and with a wood burning fireplace for the Fall and Winter. There is really no bad season. Should you be attending a wedding in the area this is a great base and ideal for sharing. Our full time property manager is available in case an emergency should arise.
We are located in the heart of the HUDSON VALLEY, just minutes south of Hudson,NY with its many antique shops and restaurants.

History buffs would enjoy a day at FDR's homes including the hide away were he met his mistress and Val-Kill the home Eleanor used to get away from it all.
