About the owner: Works for an International Wine Importer, French wine is the food of choice! Champagne is my first love, I love all things french! Raised in Texas, have lived in New York for over twenty years. Have travelled the worls, mostly for the wine industry over the sixteen years that it has been my career.
Am an avid and addicted byclist, yoga, swimmer, West Coast Dancer, some down-hill skiing, lazy gardner, but the property is beautiful because of that trat!
Very knowledgeable about wine and food.
Why the Owner Chose Rhinebeck: Hyde Park is known for its rural characteristics. Yet within minutes you are in large and medium size villages, towns and cities. Rhinebeck being the closest. This is a unique property in that it has beautiful trees for landscaping, yet has old world charm. The pond is beautiful. The property is half a mile from the Hudson River. Hyde Park has two boat launches and overnight boat docking. The house is circa 1900 and its exterior reminds you of the smaller chateaux in rural France. Which is why I lovingly call it Le Petit Chateau.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: The pond is the most unique aspect of the property. The owner is extremely knowledgeable of fine dining, places to see and things to do. As I travel throughout this area to sell wine, I know of areas that most property owners have never seen nor heard of . Same thing applies to biking. I know areas to bike that most property owners do not know even exist. We have a Private Chef who can cater to your needs. The Private Chef Classes are extremely successful.
