Chateau-Castle one hour from New York City!
Welcome to our magical pocket dimension!
Our hilltop Chateau-Castle sits atop a ridge at the end of a long winding private drive which blends majestically into the peaceful, private setting complimented by stunning views of the lower Hudson Valley mountains.
Once you pass through the Gothic entry gates, flaming braziers welcome you across the drawbridge as you enter another world.
Unique features include a Medieval-inspired tavern with hand-hewn beams, custom stained-glass windows, wide board floors, gothic furniture and a massive stone cooking fireplace. All bedrooms reflect the owners love of elegant history and passion for inspired epic fantasy settings. A custom, curved staircase leads to a spacious light-filled living room and mountain views out the leaded glass windows. Our property includes a library, castle tower, spiral stone staircase with arrow slits, gothic chapel dining room, secret door bookcase, spiked door, Greco/Roman inspired solarium, and countless intriguing spaces inside and out w/historic architectural elements and antiques.
Outbuildings include a Pennsylvania style 2 1/2 story barn, Stone yeoman hut with cedar shingles, garden shed and large octangular Victorian gazebo encircled by 30+ year old Rhododendrons. A custom shield-shaped pool is surrounded by mature cottage gardens and a breathtaking gothic/Victorian iron fence.
The house boasts established and meticulously maintained formal and perennial gardens, each with their own unique characteristics. At the end of a long formal path, sits a one of a kind ruined stone folly archway which frames a 6’ tall Pan statue terminus.
