Rhinebeck has long been a magnet for America's elite. A popular weekend and summer colony throughout its history, the lengthy pedigree of great estates in this storied Hudson Valley village reads like a litany of influential historic families like Astors and Livingstons, Mills's and Vanderbilts. Morton Road in particular is host to some of the area's most impressive enclaves—like Wilderstein, last owned by Roosevelt cousin (and Hyde Park on Hudson protagonist) Daisy Suckley.
This masterfully designed modern compound couples sophisticated, contemporary design with the area's timeless draws. The six-bedroom main residence was designed with dramatic architectural considerations to frame the property's sweeping views of the Hudson River, Catskill mountains and its own lush 16 acres. A great room with 40-foot vaulted ceilings and oversized windows is flooded with light, with a towering stone fireplace anchoring a sort of rusticated minimalism that defines the chic home. Down a gently-rolling hillside lies a pond, pool and brilliantly-designed pool house complementing the design of the house.
Add a secluded yet accessible location minutes from Rhinecliff station and the village and you've truly got the best in luxury living the Hudson Valley has to offer.
