Whether for weekend bliss or full-time rusticated residency, timber homes are in to win. The style is trending with renewed interest these days everywhere from Brooklyn b&bs to this New York Post piece (which featured our Millbrook and Carmel listings), riding the same rugged renaissance that helped the Catskills claim a spot on the coveted Fodor's Go List and returned the Pendleton flannel shirt to the pantheon of cool. Here are two exciting new additions to our cabin inventory in New York's Hudson Valley:
SOUTH SALEM | 54 Hoyt Street | $945,000
Westchester's Lake Truesdale is an Adirondack mirage in the middle of suburbia: worlds away from the bustle of the big city, yet close enough for creature comforts and a practical daily commute. Style and sustainability are front of mind at this chic timber lodge, perched atop a quarter acre of gently sloping land on a quiet cul-de-sac. The home's open living space is outfitted with wide-plank floors, a towering fireplace and walls of French doors revealing the expansive water view deck framing the rear elevation. Ample sunlight and radiant heat floors throughout keeps it as efficient as it is stylish.
COLD SPRING | 505 East Mountain Road | $674,000
With city types arriving weekend-ly by the train load to traverse its world-class trails, shop for outdoor apparel at shops like Old Souls Brand and Cold Spring General Store (which recently kicked off its Manhattan holiday pop-up at Chelsea's Haven's Kitchen) and scoff down pre-hike pancakes at Hudson Hil's, Cold Spring defines wilderness-chic. This back country cabin on East Mountain Road, skirting Clarence Fahnestock State Park on a five-acre parcel, is an escape in every sense of the word. Quintessential cabin sensibilities conspire with modern construction to offer a comfortable 2,570 square feet, affording its residents space to kick back and pursue passions. There's even a workshop is currently configured as a model railroad shop.
