A piece of American history designed by world renowned architect, Stanford White and located in Rhinebeck, New York, this property is truly one of a kind. Located on 50 acres of trees and pasture, this property is beautiful at all times of the year. The owners’ private quarters, in the east wing, include a new master suite with a library; and one of the most extraordinary features of the building, the original Middle Eastern-inspired swimming pool, in a room with a turquoise vaulted ceiling, white marble walls and Corinthian columns. The pool’s surface reflects seasonal landscapes visible through large new windows and bathes the room in aqueous light.
The west wing has four of the original guest bedrooms and two bathrooms that mix old and new white marble. A formal living room, with restored faux bois molding and oak wainscoting painted to match, leads onto a terrazzo-floored balcony that looks out over the Hudson River. A stunning renovated kitchen leads off of a huge living room and a traditional dining room. All rooms are anchored by the huge central Grand Salon, a ballroom sized entry hall crowned by a stunning skylight made of glass and wood with Greek key detailing.
The residence offers over 30,000 heated square feet with 17,000 being on the main floor. Another unique attribute is the Letter of Patent from New York state quaranteeing access to the Hudson River in perpetuity.
