We were lucky to be able to purchase this house from a family that had owned it for over 50 years. I am first of all a painter but have found myself over the years building or renovating, something I truly enjoy. My husband is a writer and also is director of a graduate program in NYC.
We made the critical decision years ago to move to the Hudson Valley in order to have the space we needed for our large library and painting studio as well as land for a vegetable garden and fruit trees. High Falls is an easy drive from NYC which was a necessity for us. The area is home to many artists who have an active relationship with the city. It is also the source of water for NYC and therefore much of the land is protected or is part of the geologically unique 25,000 acres in the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park.
The Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park with their over 25,000 acres of geologically unique land are within minutes from the property. The 'Gunks', one of the most important rock climbing sites in North America, is on the Shawangunk Ridge, just up the road a few miles. This rural area is known for its historic villages with their vintage shops, antique stores, restaurants and farm stands. All this is just 90 minutes from the George Washington Bridge and NYC.
