Nothing obstructs the views at this modern woodland home in New York’s bucolic Rondout Valley, which offers seclusion while also being on the doorstep of Hudson Valley’s galleries and stores.
The idyllic valley is covered in native woodland and home to little hamlets like Kerhonkson, High Falls, Stone Ridge and Accord, where 39 Hornbeck Lane is located. The property is fresh on the market and features a towering 16-ft window that looks out onto the forest and the distant Shawangunk Mountains – popular with rock climbers and hikers.
Built using steel, glass and swathes of timber, the two-bedroom New York retreat blends rudimentary pioneer cabins style with elements of international modernism to curious effect. Its interiors are anchored by a floating concrete-and-steel staircase that connects its three-storeys.
Light wooden floors hone the rustic vibe, as does a wood-burning stove which heats the home in cooler months, while luxe touches come via the Varenna-Poliform custom kitchen and limestone tiling in the bathroom.
The New York property is listed for $1.1m via Coldwell Banker. Get a closer look.
