Year Purchased: 1969
About the owner: We are the second generation to inhabit this magical 86-acre historic riverfront property, purchased in 1969 from descendants of the Livingston family of Clermont. Original Livingston Estate is now Clermont State Park, just 1/2 mile away. We maintain several long and short-term rental houses and host events in the mansion area in addition to organic farming, livestock and operating a wood mill.
Why the Owner Chose Germantown, NY, USA:
Southwood is a convenient two-hour drive from New York City. The surrounding area, which includes, Tivoli, Germantown, Rhinebeck, Hudson, Red Hook, Clermont State Park, Bard College & Omega Institute, provides varied activities that appeal to a wide range of interests for travelers. A sublime relationship to nature, in addition to the historic elements of the estate, is the main attraction. Deer, turkeys, eagles, hawks, foxes, a wide variety of songbirds and assorted critters share the wooded grounds.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Southwood Cottage is tucked in the woods and has spectacular views of the Hudson River and Catskills and the historic 1847 main house. The cottage is newly renovated. Cozy wood-burning stove provides additional heat in the living area in colder months. Skylights provide natural light.
