Hudson house description

In the heart of the Catskill Mountains
Outside the Village of Athens
Across from the City of Hudson
Snuggled in the Hudson Valley
On the majestic Hudson River

Through the covered bridge
Over Shakespeare's Creek
Enter the deep old growth forest of
Shakespeare on the Hudson and her Hudson River House.

The drive meanders through thick woods
Following the cascading waters over rock and under branch
Rushing toward the Hudson River
Where your mansion is perched but
Two hundred feet from her bank.

The Hudson River House at Shakespeare on the Hudson
awaits you and your guests with merry anticipation.

Resting upon a casual bluff, Hudson River House enjoys spectacular views of the Hudson River Valley.

The River has a heart
Her waters ebb and flow
As Her tide shifts
To surprise Your visit to Her shore.

Stroll along the estate's mile long riverfront.
From your kayak, upon calm water, watch an ocean bound vessel ply the great Hudson.

A Blue Heron stands silently stalking his breakfast.

Life slows down and becomes more relaxed
Alongside a river.

A perfect setting for a grand gathering.

Reclining in the Great Room
Calming to the quiet of the vast estate
A pie bakes in the oven
Your guests begin to arrive.

All settled into their comfortable accomodations
Your Family, Freinds, and Associates
Enjoy exploring the spacious Sunshine Yellow House and surrounding 101 acres of woods, lawn and beach.

With lunch searing on the grill
Your gathering becomes lively around the heated swimming pool and across the expansive lawn reaching to the river shore.

In the evening, far away on the opposite shore the lights of Hudson, NY twinkle and you soak in the hot spa beneath the starry sky.

After a comfortable nights sleep in one of the three master suites
Awaken refreshed to the warm morning sun rising in the sky directly across the river.

Downstairs, the crowd gathers in the spacious kitchen lit generously by 30 foot high french windows. The bacon is crisp and the coffee is hot.

The beginning of another great day at
Shakespeare on the Hudson.

                  Shakespeare on the Hudson and the estate's secluded mansions, are a destination for tranquility and enjoyable gathering. The beautiful landscape and comfortable spacious accomodations makes this Hudson Valley property an ideal venue for gatherings and festivities of all sizes and configurations.

                  Located on the Hudson River. With a long private driveway. Very Private and wonderfully secluded.

                  Imagine..your own pebble beach on the Hudson River....

                  The River House offers eleven comfortable bedrooms, and 7 1/2 bathrooms - a sprawling masterpiece (loft style) that is a mere 200 feet from the Hudson River. Including three spacious master suites, and a brand new Sun Cal spa tub.

                  Minutes from Hudson, New York (recently named one of the 10 coolest cities in the US.)

                  Other Activities: Go to Olana- where Frederick Church put his hat.

                  Visit Hudson, New York by ferry from the village of Athens.

                  For restaurants (from the ultra-chic to the down and dirty), art events, or just hanging.

                  Antiquing is the passion for many who come here. Saugerties, Hudson, Woodstock, Coxsackie and Athens are some treasures.

                  Striped Bass come swarming up the river in late April- June.

                  It is not unusual to pull a 25 pound fish out the river; this is one of the best places to fish the Hudson River. You can fish from Shore and catch your own herring from the Corlear (Shakespeare) Creek- which runs through the property.

                  This property is only one hour from major attractions, such as:

                  Saratoga / Saratoga Race Track and Casino

                  Six Flags

                  2 Water Parks

                  Spa's

                  Golf

                  Bald eagles are abundant in the skiy above; so are blue herons, hawks, and owls of fantastic variety. Deer are your neighbors.

                  Golf: Windham Country Club

                  Windham Country Club is an 18-hole public golf course located in the scenic Northern Catskills of New York State. Designed in 1928 by Len Raynor.

                  Also just minutes away:

                  Rainbow Golf

                  Ski: 20 minutes from Windham ski area, which is has recently made significant improvements to their wonderful mountain.

                  Hunter Mountain is 25 minutes away- just as exciting.

                  2 hours by Amtrak from NYC, 20 minutes from Albany.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: Shakespeare On The Hudson: Owen's background is in publishing: at the age of 30, he launched American Health magazine which won the National Magazine Award for Excellence, and later was owner and editor of several other magazines including Psychology Today, Mother Earth News and Spy. The Wall Street Journal called him the 'Wunderkind of the '80s.' Upon moving to the Hudson Valley, he became managing partner and editor-in-chief of InsideOut magazine. Owen Lipstein — founder of Shakespeare on the Hudson — says that the next phase of Shakespeare on the Hudson has been 'the biggest project of [his] lifetime.' Call it, if you will, unfinished business. After purchasing the disparate properties that now make up the grounds of Shakespeare on the Hudson nearly 15 years ago, Owen has steadily been working towards turning it into a fully functioning, self-subsidizing cultural center. Shakespeare on the Hudson not only provides space for private events (such as weddings, parties, and romantic getaways for two), but cultural events, such as readings with authors and live, 'Inside the Actor's Studio'-style interviews with important figures who make the Hudson Valley their home. He also hopes to host adventure weekends for kayaking and rock climbing, organize birdwatching retreats, and have storytelling conferences that feature first-time authors to New York Times bestsellers.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hudson:
                  Beautiful privacy in wonderful comfort. Time slows down alongside a River. Shakespeare On The Hudson is an estate which provides a unique and beautiful venue to occassions of all sizes and shapes and gatherings as unique as your own. Brillant and breathtaking views in grand natural surroundings the secluded estate is ideal for gatherings of freinds, family and associates.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
