Woodside, a modern country home with much warmth and character, located in a totally private setting in a 532 acre state park, on a mountain top with extraordinary views of the Hudson River and the lower Hudson Valley. It offers relaxation and natural beauty at the highest level in a luxurious setting . A spectacular stone lined, in ground pool, graces the landscape and looks out to the river. The home offers a mid-century vibe and is very geometric in design. Many different design elements work together to create synergy and excitement as you walk through the home. From the use of steel, huge expanses of glass (that offer views of the landscape and river), to the warmth of wood floors and ceilings, to sleekness of marble and granite, it all works together beautifully. The many terraces, decks and patios also offer many outdoor options, but not to be outdone by a huge, flat lawn that faces the Hudson.
The gardens offer several secret sitting areas and there is a pretty trellis area off the principle bedroom suite. An ancient looking 8ft tall stone wall runs along the western boundary of the property and adds a sense of antiquity to the property. Woodside is a remarkable estate, in a one of a kind, park-like setting, and is defined by clean lines, muted tones, a combination of natural and manmade materials, graphic shapes, vibrant colors and the integration of indoor and outdoor motifs. As the home is only 40 minutes from NYC, it offers easy access to urban culture or the shops, restaurants, marinas, golf clubs, horseback riding and culture of the Hudson Valley. Clausland (Mountain) is named after the 'clever native American,' Jans Clause, who acted as an agent for the sale of land to the early Dutch settlers in the 1600s - - he was probably the first listing agent for this property 400 years ago! Nothing compares!
