Germantown chalet description

Romantic and rare riverfront property with breathtaking Hudson River/Catskill Mountain views from all angles of this newly built single family chalet and the surrounding 23 private waterfront acres. Beautiful secluded 2000 sqft cottage with indoor/outdoor heated pool and hot tub is meant as a couple's private retreat with all of the benefits of a true country experience while maintaining a spa quality luxury and wireless connections to the world. Gorgeous vacation getaway for all seasons. Situated in the heart of New York's historic Hudson River Valley, it is an artist and photographer's dream. With abundant wildlife, sloped trails toward the river and adjacent creek it is made for the nature lover in us all. Historic mansions dot the river in both directions providing excellent excursions. Inviting local farms abound in surrounding villages with fresh eggs, cheeses, honey, maple syrup, produce and 'U Pick 'em' orchards in season - apples, pears, cherries, peaches, grapes, berries and even pick your own Christmas trees. Two wineries just minutes away, ample shopping and dining, hiking, scenic drives, live performances...it's all here.
This elaborate cottage is the ultimate 'do nothing but relax' or 'do everything under the sun' vacation spot. Either way, grab a bottle of wine and enjoy!

                          Why the Owner Chose Germantown:
                          The beauty of the valley speaks for itself. Located 100 miles north of NYC, Columbia County is a slowed pace country wonder with surprising upsides: tremendous historic significance, stimulating cultural events, quality restaurants, quaint shopping, serious antiquing, abundant outdoor activities and sunsets matched by no other.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                          It's all about the view! The moment you step onto the ridge you will be taken away by the mountains and the mighty Hudson River. This multi-county area is steeped in historic properties and is the heart and soul of the Hudson River School of Painting. Artists Thomas Cole and Fredric Church built their estates a stone's throw up the river. Roosevelts, Vanderbilts and Astors have long called this valley their home. Although there are ample gently rolling trails, hiiking around the entire 23 acres can be challenging as the steep slopes of the river and abutting kill jet up to a high ridge. This was once a Native American campground overlooking these bodies of water. Arrowheads and artifacts have been found here for years. The beauty is not lost on the abundant wildlife that feeds here. Wild turkeys, deer, ducks, geese and bald eagles are common visitors. It's a wonderful place to explore.
