For the discerning buyer, a century old mansion located in picturesque Hudson. Decadent in its proportions, yet truly remarkable for its understated elegance
The main floor offers a formal Living Room, ideal for entertaining on a grand scale, with a wood burning fireplace, sweeping staircase, feature window and uninterrupted views over the rolling front lawn to the beautiful Lake of Two Mountains; a Drawing Room with beautiful wood burning fireplace and elegant mantelpiece, a large panelled Dining Room with exposed beams, wood burning fireplace and two sets of French doors leading to the large screened-in Summer Room with views of the pool, forest and lawn. Off the formal living room is what would have been the Gentleman's Smoking Room with wood burning fireplace. Today this room could serve as a Family Room or second Master Bedroom. A powder room, served by both a Ladies Parlour and Gentleman's Cloakroom, completes the formal part of the home.
A country estate would not be complete without a Country Kitchen and this one will not disappoint. A wood burning fireplace keeps the room warm and inviting. To the back of the kitchen you will find a full Pantry and original Cold Room. There is direct access to the English style country courtyard as well as views over the large custom in-ground pool and private garden, complete with its very own stream.
Upstairs offers five bedrooms and three bathrooms. The original master Suite overlooks the gardens and lake and has its own private balcony from which to take in the views. The attic, an ideal playroom or family nook, is nestled cosily between the eaves.
If you are looking for a slice of city elegance in the country, a place to showcase your furniture and fine art, to entertain on a grand scale, or simply relax...you have found it.
