Property description

Very special Hudson River-front house with a spectacular view in a unique private setting, only 90 minutes by car or train from NYC, available for longer term, single family rental. Enjoy mountain biking, rock climbing, summer and winter hiking, boating, the world-famous Culinary Institute, Hyde Park, the Roosevelt and Vanderbilt Homes, the village of New Paltz, and Mohonk Lodge and Preserve, all less than 20 minutes away. Or just nap on the deck and go for a swim.

Three formal bedrooms, an additional bedroom off the master suite, and a cozy walk-out basement game room with the same beautiful river view as the rest of the house. Formal dining room with seating and service for 10, relaxing living room with a giant fireplace and piano, large kitchen/family-room adjacent to the pool, and all connected by two 50-ft decks overlooking the Hudson River. Play ping pong, sing along at the piano, shoot pool on an antique Brunswick table, watch Apple TV, play selections from an extensive Jazz and Classical music collection, sing Karaoke from the big-screen HDTV. Invite family and friends. Room to roam.

Master suite has its own balcony overlooking the pool and river, king-size 4-poster bed, huge walk-in closet, sitting area, private bath and dressing counter. Bedrooms #2 and #3 have queen beds, river views, and shared bath. Basement game room and an office off the master suite have queen beds for the occasional overnight guest. High-quality linens, towels, down pillows and comforters throughout.

High speed wireless internet, high-quality firewood, strong cell signal, top quality kitchen appliances, large charcoal and gas grills with utensils. Garage, W/D, central air/heat, and smoke-free. Child-proof electric sockets and door gates for little kids. Just bring your toothbrush.

The house is situated off Bellevue Avenue which, like its name suggests, affords spectacular views of Dutchess County across the Hudson River. The village of Highland, a classic New England hamlet with no Starbucks or Home Depot, is perfectly located with mountains to the west, river to the east, and quiet countryside all around.

You'll be five minutes from the Mid-Hudson Bridge and spectacular Walkway Over the Hudson, the world's longest pedestrian bridge that you can walk or bike, as well as across the river from the Culinary Institute of America, FDR and Vanderbilt historical mansions. 20 minutes to Mohonk Mountain House, rock climbing and mountain biking in the famous 'Gunks', wine trails, apple picking, horseback riding, and colleges including New Paltz, Vassar, Marist, Bard. Music, art and cultural events, antiquing, hiking. The property extends to the Hudson river, accessible on foot in early spring and late fall.
