About 390 Ridge Road
Straight up the Taconic Parkway, just 2 and a half hours from Midtown, your driveway is barely noticeable -- but you know what lies beyond - safety, serenity, and seclusion. Unlock the gate, drive through the woods, and prepare to experience a different kind of rush hour - tracking big buck or flushing wild pheasants or raucous turkeys. Better still, just rest and relax on your ultra-private 223+ acre retreat on the hillsides of the Hudson River. Your driveway reveals nothing to the rest of the world about the luxury accommodations await in the custom-built, true-log home. Outdoor enthusiasts or those just looking for a unique family or group retreat in the Hudson River highlands will find it here.The grounds of the home are well-maintained with landscaping around 2 ponds, and ample parking, plus a 500 square foot double-door equipment barn. Enter the home and take in the cathedral-like lodge with an open living-dining-kitchen space anchored by a massive 25 foot floor-to-ceiling fieldstone wood burning fireplace. True log walls and rich pinewood floors throughout the home add strength and character in every room. The kitchen, where everyone gathers, is open to this lovely space, with a great seating peninsula, ideal for travelers and wilderness voyagers to sit while the feast is prepared. 2 bdrms on main floor, off kitchen w a shared full.

Close to the historic villages of Stuyvesant (10 mins to the Hudson River Boat Launch), Hudson, Chatham, Kinderhook and Catskill.
