Ashridge is a classically designed Greek Revival home with breathtaking Hudson River views. Capturing the grandeur of the great estates of the Hudson Valley, the circa 1820s home was completely re-modeled in the 1920s by noted society architect Aymar Embury. Rich in character, the home showcases many splendid details including period moldings, imported English pine paneling and doors, original leaded glass windows and antique chestnut floor boards. In addition to a sparkling skating pond and lush mature plantings, the setting also hosts a 3-bedroom antique colonial farm house, a 3-bedroom caretaker’s cottage with greenhouse, studio with greenhouse and garage with two staff apartments. Ideally situated within minutes of the lively village and rail station, and approximately 45 minutes from New York City.
