About Judson St. John

I am a lifelong Chappaqua resident who found a very unique home after many years of living in town.

Judson St. John purchased this chateau / country house in 1993

Why Judson St. John chose Millwood

If you are looking for a private get away in Westchester this is the place! Use it for a family gathering or a family staging ground to visit the nearby attractions. Perfect for big family.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This is probably one of the more unique private residences in Chappaqua for its privacy and access to the immediate region. No need for curtains unless you don't want to be seen by deer. Enter into wetlands and drive up to rolling mountain side location. Unique local wildlife out your back door - with a deer fence! Heron, turkey, geese, all kinds of birds, fox, rabbits, ground hogs, and yes, raccoons and coyotes. Big and flat back yard for volley ball or bocce or touch football! Take a walk on the 50-+ acres of woodlands behind the house or a long bike ride on the North County Trailway bike path or a run around the West Orchard loop with no traffic. Take a jacuzzi in the master bath with windows like you are outdoors. Or a steam shower after a bike ride, walk or run. Bring the dogs - they will be in heaven! Cook out on the grill or roast marsh mellows over the fire pit in front of the lean-to! Then sleep there if your heart desires. But you will have to sing to the fox!

Incredible New Year weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for New Year's eve weekend. What a fabulous way to bring in 2018! Thls house is amazing ... decor, ambiance, comfort, everything. There were 10 of us and everyone had a wonderful weekend. The owner is very attentive and responds very quickly if you have a question. We are looking forward to renting in the spring.

Wonderful Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this home to stay in for my brothers wedding in NY.

The location was fabulous (close to highways, parks for the kids down the street and right next to the biking/running trail), the home itself was gorgeous (and beyond spacious!) and the owner was informative and responsive.

My sister-in-law said she never wanted to go home and my 4 year old niece claimed that this was her new vacation home in NY : )

All around a big hit and absolutely perfect for what we needed. I would highly recommend that anyone visiting the area stay at this home.

Wonderful House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We used the house as a base for our larger family and friends for my brother's wedding and it was spot on what we needed. The house is in great condition and decorated with taste. As far as price, it is a great value for what you are getting. Judson is a joy to deal with as an owner and was so accommodating when a couple of issues arose. I would highly recommend a stay.

Perfect inside and out

  • 5 of 5

The size and layout of the large home worked well for us. We used the kitchen and outdoor areas a lot. The location was quiet and peaceful. The nearby trail was fun to go on.

The owner was quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had.

Had a wonderful time in this unique home.
