The Shaker House offers the ultimate summertime escape pad in the Hudson Valley, less than two hours north of NYC.
Designed by an architect from IM Pei’s office and hand-constructed by Shakers in 1992, this house is situated on 24.6 acres of hidden-away land at the end of a long driveway. And, like most hidden treasure, it shines with a multitude of facets, starting with the stunning terraced saltwater pools connected via crystalline waterfall.
The Shaker House itself is a breath of fresh air, with 6,348 square feet of open, calming space. Chill out in front of the living room brick fireplace, cook up a storm in the gourmet kitchen, or rest up for tomorrow’s adventures in one of six bedrooms plus sleek baths.
An elevator provides access to all three of the home’s floors, so make sure you take a stop at the master bath with stone waterfall…
…and, guests can have their own slice of privacy in the property’s guest house with loft bedroom and a cozy wood stove.
And, finally, no summertime escape pad would be complete with an outdoor hot tub surrounded by attractive landscaping and terraced decks and patios. Don’t worry about winter’s icy blasts: This property also comes with a whole-house generator.
Located in the Dutchess County town of Red Hook, close to Rhinebeck village, the Rhinecliff Amtrak station, the Hudson River, and, just on the other side of the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge, the Catskill Mountains.
