7 Tamarack Lane, Kerhonkson, NY 12446
The ultimate Hudson Woods property is now available for the first time. This impressive all-season retreat, with its impeccable attention to detail and superb infrastructure, was conceived by the current owner and executed flawlessly in conjunction with architect Drew Lang and his team. Every comfort and convenience were considered with the intention of crafting a place of rest and relaxation amid nature, yet close to significant cultural venues, innovative farms and restaurants, boundless outdoor activities, and all within two hours of New York City. The six buildings on the property all relate in style and scale, and are positioned to take advantage of sight lines and natural light. The MAIN HOUSE is classic Hudson Woods in design, with a soaring wall of glass in the upper great room, which encompasses kitchen, living and dining. The primary bedroom suite is serene and bright, with double sinks, concrete countertops and stone floors and shower in the bathroom, and a walk-in closet outfitted by West NYC closet systems. Extensive use of white oak on floors, walls, ceilings and cabinetry offers a rustic counterpoint to the modern aesthetic, and is especially evident in the dramatic entry hall with its artfully designed storage wall. Wide cedar decking wraps around two sides of the home and is accessed by tall sliders from the living/dining area, allowing for delightful warm-weather entertaining, while the lower-level great room and bedrooms open to another deck that runs the length of the house. There’s radiant heat throughout, high-efficiency/low maintenance systems, a solar array with Tesla battery storage, mahogany framed European tilt-in windows, J Geiger remote motorized window treatments throughout, and wine refrigeration. South facing and positioned between the MAIN HOUSE and the POOL HOUSE, the saline gunite POOL with retractable electric cover, spa and cold plunge are flanked by a bluestone patio, lush landscaping, and an outrageous outdoor sound system. The POOL HOUSE sleeps two or more, and includes a kitchenette, sauna, full bathroom and discreet outside shower. Just north of the pool, the SCREENED-IN OUTDOOR KITCHEN offers plenty of shaded lounging and dining space and is equipped with a grill, smoker, pizza oven and dishwasher, all by Kalamazoo, considered to be the pinnacle of outdoor cooking. The multi-zone computer-controlled GREENHOUSE incorporates a potting shed clad in Shou Sugi Ban siding and supports growing varied plant types year round. Directly across from the MAIN HOUSE is the STUDIO, a place the current owner would retreat to to make music, though the space is easily deployed as a gym, office, media room, or the product of the next owner’s imagination. The most fabulous GARAGE, with Tesla and Porsche chargers, floor drains and a car washing station, full HVAC and the most sophisticated garage doors and opening mechanism is the most impressive this veteran agent has ever seen. Precision electrical fittings throughout the property are by Forbes + Lomax; lighting is by Roll + Hill, Allied Maker and Apparatus; wood stoves are by Wittus. The 5.9 acre parcel is blanketed by a mix of deciduous and coniferous trees and the property is available on 18.42 acres at $4,950,000.
