About 862 Albany Post Road

Affectionately known as the "round house" this home looks like it’s straight out of a magical fairytale. It’s unique design was created by the current owner, John Battista, from a dream he had; to build a round house, paying tribute to the natural beauty of the land through cedar, stone and visual appeal. Set on over 10 acres of land, this small house compliments the landscape with an impressive entrance. The front door is 9 feet tall and hand built out of Alder wood with a mortice lock; which conjures thoughts of a friendly giant awaiting on the other side. The unique kitchen awaits your viewing pleasure with custom cedar abound! To compliment the roundness of the house, the owners installed three refrigerated compartments instead of a traditional refrigerator, along with an icemaker that makes the most beautiful ice cubes you’ve ever seen; all of which visually blends in with the cabinets. The wood burning stove in the kitchen sits on a custom granite and cedar base for ease of use in the cold winters. Along with the fireplace, the kitchen, basement and bathroom floors are all individually heated and can be set to your desired temperature. The walls themselves have water running through them to keep them at an even temperature (this too, can be turned on or off at your discretion). There is electric heat in the conservatory as well. The walls on the first and second floor are custom poured 21 feet tall 6 inches thick cement, with the structure itself being engineered for steel. Your own private bunker. As you ascend the staircase to the living room, you will notice the gorgeous views from the picture windows along with the custom eastern red cedar shelving. the custom platform bed with gorgeous detail, appears to be floating between floors and comfortably holds a queen size futon or platform mattress. The main bathroom sports a gorgeous steam shower with imported tumbled tile and custom cedar platform for maximum comfort. Continue up the spiral staircase to the conservatory, which has custom red cedar flooring, and breathtaking views of Millbrook and the Hudson Valley. The floor on the outside balcony was recently accented with beautiful recycled rubber pavers for maximum comfort on the feet and perfect for withstanding the elements. The amount of beauty and unique designs that come with the magic of a round house with wood, stone, light and shadow will enthrall you for years to come. This home is perfect as a primary or secondary residence. It would also make an ideal rental property.
