Meadow Ridge Farm is a 100-acre estate that features an meticulously and lovingly built dream home on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River. Everything in this home was carefully selected to suit the location, including the 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows custom-made by Germany's top glass manufacturer, wood ceilings and balconies made of aged Ipe reclaimed from the Coney Island boardwalk, and the suspended central staircase made of a single span of steel. Solar power, a geothermal heating and cooling systems and triple-paned glass make the home wonderfully energy efficient all year. Beautifully and subtly decorated, there is no comparable home in the Hudson Valley.
The property includes two restored barns, a 120-year-old renovated caretaker's home, a synthetic grass tennis court, and a chlorine-free salt-water pool overlooking a fruit orchard and field of wildflowers. No expense was spared in landscaping the estate to highlight the natural beauty of the region. The farm has chickens and fresh eggs, a large organic garden producing fresh vegetables from early summer to late fall, a blueberry garden and acres of natural raspberry bushes that blossom in June and July. A path down a ravine leads to a natural beach along the Hudson.
The main house can easily accommodate 10 people in comfortable, sound-proofed bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. An open Italian kitchen and an outdoor grill provides the finest appliances for those who love to cook. The dining table is carved from the trunk of single Maine walnut tree, and the dining chairs were made of hand-blown steel by a Catskill artist. There is a large entertainment room with built-in surround-sound speakers, a library, a piano and many other features to discover.
A caretaker and grounds crew maintain the property and provide security.
The estate just over two hours from New York City and 30 minutes from Albany. Kaaterskill Falls, Hunter and Wyndham Mountains, and other prime skiing and hiking destinations in the Catskills are a 35 minute drive away. This idyllic retreat is available to a discerning family or small group seeking a rare experience.+ More
