And Our Top Contemporary Contender is….


Rhinecliff River Views!

Are we surprised? Not really. Between the incredible views, the pristine décor, and the property’s location just two minutes from the Rhinecliff train station, we had a feeling this Dutchess County stunner would take the lead…

…And we’re not the only ones – this month’s winner voted for 363 Rhinecliff Road as well, and we are excited to announce that our lucky Upstater, Fran, will be receiving a $250 gift certificate to Henry’s at the Farm!

Now for yet another piece of good news: 363 Rhinecliff Road is still on the market. We did a little math (against our better judgment), and if everyone who voted for this gorgeous home pitched in to buy it, we could (all 100+ of us) turn it into our own rental for less than $5k each and take turns spending the weekend gazing meaningfully out onto the river from the huge windows.

This is just an idea, of course.
