Designed and built by Mott Schmidt in 1938, Hudson Pines reflects the understated style, warmth and quality of its owner, David Rockefeller.
Sited on over 75 acres with far-reaching Hudson River views, the main residence offers 11,343 square feet on three levels. A gracious entry with Mott Schmidt's signature floating staircase is timeless elegance. The living room overlooks the sweeping lawn followed by dramatic river views beyond, as does the dining room, with access to a private side terrace. Overlooking the gardens with a brick terrace, the library has a magnificent carved fireplace, separate office with fireplace and a full bath. In addition to the grand staircase, an elevator accesses the second floor. The second floor features a master wing with a private balcony, dual dressing galleries with fitted closets; and 5 bedrooms and 5 full baths. A third floor has an additional 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. A lower basement level includes a wine vault, hobby rooms and offices.
Magnificent specimen gardens, broad lawns and arboretum-worthy woodlands, reminiscent of the creations of England's Capability Brown, are complemented with a round heated pool, a playhouse for gatherings of any age, a large carriage house, a 3-bedroom gate house, 6-stall barn with tack room and office, three greenhouses with potting benches and an office, a mature apple orchard, and a private helipad.
