A Mid-Mod for a New Millennium in Ghent, NY, $875K

Built in 2012, this Columbia County modern retreat is a Frank-Lloyd-Wright-ian wonder cast in concrete…

A sloped roof means more windows, and this house is positively awash in windows. All the views of the property’s natural setting juxtaposed with concrete walls and polished concrete floors make the 2,200-square-foot interior something kinda special. And, it’s exactly the type of house we’ve been searching the east-of-Hudson listings for this week.

(By the way, this home’s sloped roof isn’t just for cosmetics. According to the listing, the pitch helps keep sun in during the winter and out during summer.)

Fret not: These concrete floors come equipped with radiant heat. It’s just one of the ways this house takes the concept of sleek and modern (or, what some might read as “cold”) and brings it down-to-earth and warms it up…quite literally. Wood window trim, door frames, and accents help ground the interior, as well.

Stainless steel comes into play in the gourmet kitchen, and the bath fixtures include concrete, tile, and wood.

Includes two bedrooms, plus a master en suite with floor-to-ceiling windows and entrance to its own patio.

Create a studio, home office, workshop, or guest house from the matching separate building with electricity on the property. With 5.2 acres of land at your disposal, feel free to garden it up like crazy here, or keep it green and serene.

Located in rural Columbia County, about 20 minutes east of Hudson city on the riverfront. Accessible to Massachusetts, I-90, the Taconic State Parkway, Art Omi sculpture park, and charming towns like Kinderhook and Chatham.
