This meticulously curated Hudson Highlands home effuses high standards of living without an ounce of pretension. Traditional farmhouse elements pop with bright colors, mid-century modern furnishings and a life-is-good attitude, stretching a magical canvas on which to paint a energetic, nature-filled lifestyle. The sun-drenched kitchen, its skylit ceiling vaulted over hand-hewn beams, flows into a fireplace living room, sharing between them an outdoor terrace overlooking the mighty river. Acapulco chairs sit poolside facing the river and craggy Storm King Mountain, leading to paths which wander the lushly-planted grounds and connect a all-weather tennis/sports court and a brand new garage with studio/guest space. If the house wasn't incredible enough by itself, consider its proximity to one of the best Main Streets in the Hudson Valley—if not anywhere—with its galleries, quaint sidewalk cafes and one-of-a-kind purveyors of local artisanal wares. Setting and design collide to create a truly spectacular retreat that smiles back and says, "treat yourself."
