Welcome to North River House, an elegantly designed modern Gothic Revival home with panoramic views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains from every room. This property is a rare combination of total privacy, water and mountain views, a rushing stream and woodlands yet only a short distance to the Rhinecliff Amtrak train station and a three minute drive to the beautiful Village of Rhinebeck.The welcoming formal entry foyer is a prelude to the take your breath away vista once you round the corner into the rest of the home. Because of its open plan, the stately living room with bluestone fireplace feels traditional, cozy and casual all at the same time. A well appointed eat-in kitchen with breakfast bar, work island, large pantry, stone counters, Sub-Zero and Viking appliances is sure to accommodate any foodie or entertainment maven. Since the views from everywhere are oriented out toward the river, the flow from inside to the outside spaces is conducive for large cocktail parties, barbecues or intimate al fresco dining. French doors from the living room open to a dramatic glass enclosed dining room with cathedral wood ceilings and another stone fireplace. The doors from the living and dining areas all open to an expansive mahogany deck for entertaining. It is truly magical to watch the ever changing river sunsets throughout the seasons as you listen to the cascading year round creek. Don't forget to take the stone path from the house down the bluestone stone steps to the stream. Just follow the sound! The property crosses the stream and includes the wooded area beyond for those who enjoy forest bathing. Tucked off the kitchen's corner is a delightful office space with built in desk, bookshelves and custom cabinetry. The first floor primary bedroom suite amenities include; a third fireplace, large bathroom with walk in shower, whirlpool soaking tub, walk in closet, radiant heated floors and a private deck to enjoy morning coffee or meditation. A beautifully designed staircase opens to the striking second floor library/den which has windows and doors to a balcony overlooking the river view. In addition there are two very generous en suite bedrooms, both with high ceilings and window seats. The lower level has a west facing wall of full size windows and French doors that lead to a large bluestone patio. The main room on this floor is a huge versatile space with a full tiled bathroom, great as a family room, additional entertaining space or studio. The fourth bedroom on this level is now being used as an office and has custom built in bookcases. Additional storage space galore in this house. Above the garage is walk up second floor with a cathedral ceiling that could be finished as a bonus room or perhaps nanny quarters, and another space is behind a bedroom on the second floor which also could be easily finished for play or study space. Additionally there is storage in the large lower level utility room and outdoor shed. The two car garage is heated and all the floors of the house which are stunning (maple on the first floor and pine on the second floor) were milled from trees taken from the land when the original owner built the house. This home will capture your heart and for those who yearn to have the river be your muse, it is perfect.
