    Looking to write the great American novel? Create the next Microsoft? Or simply enjoy a respite from a busy life? We recommend that you go to the "mountaintop" for some inspiration.

     For those seeking peace, privacy and wondrous views, these special properties are sure to inspire great things.

    Ashokan AerialSecluded in beautiful Catskill Park yet only minutes from nearby Woodstock, Ashokan House enjoys supreme privacy and sublime vistas over the Ashokan Reservoir, Shawangunk Ridge and Mohonk Mountain. A grand stone manse, stone carriage house and gymnasium share this exceptional hilltop setting, only 90 minutes from Manhattan. Contact Norm MacKay at Houlihan Lawrence's Millbrook Brokerage for more information.

    Fourviews Aerial

    Fourviews in Bedford is aptly named for its dramatic views that reach out in every direction. Convenient to both Greenwich and Bedford Village, you can even see Long Island Sound from the spectacular pool and terrace modeled after Paradise Island's famed Ocean Club. Contact David Oswald at our Bedford Brokerage for more information on this hilltop paradise.

    Tower Hill ViewYou don't have to travel far from Manhattan to enjoy thrilling hilltop vistas. At Tower Hill in Scarborough, cloistered on the grounds of the Sleepy Hollow Country Club, the views of the Hudson River and the New York skyline never cease to amaze.  Only 45 minutes from Manattan.  Contact Mary Madigan at the Houlihan Lawrence Irvington Brokerage for more information.

    Point Of View Farm ViewFifty mile views that stretch to the Catskill Mountains are the main attraction at Point Of View Farm in Bengall, one of the Millbrook area's premier properties centered by a Adirondack-style hilltop lodge with an authentic Scandinavian sauna. Contact John Friend at our Millbrook brokerage for more information.
