767 South Street, Highland
Created by artists and designed to embrace a truly rich natural setting, this house is equal parts work of art and sleek retreat. Set on 23+ secluded acres just 90 minutes by car from Uptown Manhattan, the house was the brainchild of renowned ceramicists Phillip Maberry and Scott Walker and the property served as the location for the iconic and MTV Award-winning “Love Shack” video by the B-52s. The house has been lauded as a "thrill ride on the color wheel" by the New York Times Home & Garden section. Subsequent owners have made important upgrades, including a new super high-efficiency heating system, rebuilding the roof and finishing the garage to function as a spacious studio, all while preserving the colorful Maberry & Walker aesthetic, including the tile mosaics – designed and fired on site – that give the house a masterfully mixed sense of playfulness, warmth and modernity. The three levels of living space, built around a natural rock outcropping and topped by a roof deck, take full advantage of both the seclusion and drama of the acreage, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing views of your own meadow, mountain range and even a small pond. Massive hemlock beams, reclaimed from the property, cap each room, including the sun-drenched bedroom retreat that sits atop the building like a secret tree house. It all combines for a relaxed but visually stellar experience, inside and out, that’s a quick trip not just from NYC, but to the Poughkeepsie MetroNorth station, the Walkway Over the Hudson, and the charming villages of New Paltz and Highland.

This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
