The River House your gateway to a Life of discovery on the Majestic Hudson River! An enchanting journey awaits you and it begins with this magnificent custom Lindal Cedar Home with direct river frontage. Every Lindal Home is an original! Recently completed, it was designed and built by its current owner along with the professionals at Lindal Cedar Homes in Seattle, WA. This Contemporary home features dramatic post and beam architecture which allows for soaring ceilings and floor-to-ceiling walls of glass. It features only the finest craftsmanship and quality construction throughout, including the strength and beauty of western red cedar from the Pacific Northwest. Much attention has been paid to blend this home with its natural surrounding environment. A serene elegance emanates from the combinations of wood, stone, bamboo and glass, providing a sense of peace and connectivity to the land and water. The sheer Bluestone cliffs behind the home feel like part of the inside, framed by specialty garden and sunroom windows. An authentic "Great Room" of open space is a stunning observatory of the panoramic river views, sweeping miles from north to south. Follow the spiral staircase up to the third story loft and back deck for some nightly star gazing! Multiple beautiful fireplaces also provide additional heat and set a glowing backdrop for entertainment and relaxation in the great room and bedrooms. Lindal homes are also treasured for the Eco-Friendly and high efficiency qualities. No expense was spared here. This home was built to surpass the current building code standards and provides the highest "R" Energy values possible. Lindal's signature "Polar Wall System" was a well appointed upgrade here. Adding that Lindal's design allows for air flow, a winning combination is achieved; cozy warmth in the winter, cool comfort in the summer and superior air quality. Additionally, radiant floor heat is on both floors, even the 2-1/2 car garage. Warm floors give a great sense of comfort in the winter and high efficiency boiler system provides it at a very low cost. In summer, top of the line ductless units cool just the spaces you want and high SEER values keep cooling costs down. Life on the Hudson is dynamic scenery in motion.

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.
