Lake Home For Sale

This splendid architectural tribute to the nineteenth-century Shingle Style, exhibits what art historian Vincent Scully calls the 'power of space' so characteristic of the mansions in Newport, Montauk and Chicago. Built in 2003, Wyndclyffe House provides all the modern conveniences of a contemporary home with the timeless scenery of Hudson River and Catskill Mountain grandeur. Perched high on the east bank of the Hudson, with multiple porches, decks and patios, pool and hot tub and affording 180-degree river views, the house creates an interior landscape of its own, with large sunlit rooms complemented by intricate and intriguing spaces for privacy and enjoyment. In keeping with late nineteenth-century aesthetics, and its fascination with Japanese culture, there is an exquisite garden by the eminent landscape designer Hoichi Kurisu, combining rocks, trees and waterfalls to accent the entrance and refresh the senses. An added attraction is the lovely remodeled 1870 Carriage House on the property that was once part of the renowned Jones Estate, built by the aunt of the novelist Edith Wharton (and the origin of the phrase 'keeping up with the Jones's'). It has a large living room, two bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen and other amenities. More a mode of living than a mere dwelling, Wyndclyffe House is secluded but is only minutes from the Rhinecliff Amtrak station and Rhinebeck Village which is well known for its innovative eateries, avant-garde galleries, an art-house cinema and eclectic retailers.
