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. Other garden areas include a shade garden with pond and gothic benches, a metal Victorian fountain pond, an herb garden, and more.
The castle sits on 11.5 acres with woodland paths and wonderous elm tree Ent named Lowfrond who guards the forest.

1800s farm and farm house
We have a four acre farm with a few barns and silos. Lots of beautiful tress and grounds. The house was built in 1810 and we are just starting to restore it. So the house in somewhat under construction but could still be used to film.
Mountains & fields, 11+ acre Americana < 45 mi NYC
For film & photo ONLY. This 11+ acre hill top property is about 45 miles north/northwest of NYC in the charming horse/wine country Town of Warwick. The cozy brick home is classic "Americana," with lovely property in all directions. The south facing rear looks 1.5 miles across to the Appalachian Ridge, with scenic woods and rolling hay fields in between. A charming 30x40 garden features a corner section with a small flock of heritage breed chickens. Deer, wild turkey and a variety of other wildlife abound on the property.
As a film site this home and property are classic middle/upper middle class American country living. The charming road on which it sits, and the property itself “feel” much further removed than the actual NYC proximity. In the spring the flowers and fruits trees bloom brightly, in summer the hay grows 5 feet high before cutting, and blows gently in the mountain breeze. In autumn the foliage can be breathtaking, and in winter the snow is deep outside while the wood-burning stove glows warm inside.
The charming Village of Warwick is only 6 miles away, with adorable shops and cute places to eat. About halfway between the property and village is one of the last remaining drive-in theaters on the East Coast. Tuxedo, NY train station (MetroNorth) is about a 30 minute drive away.
