HUDSON RIVER HOUSE
The 150 year old Victorian farm house was perfectly sited atop a great lawn, with the view down to the river framed on both sides by woods. All interior and exterior walls were removed along with some unfortunate 1960’s era additions, preserving only the strong, beautifully detailed and original roof of the main house. The hillside was reconstructed with stone walls as naturally as possible to fit terraces, a pergola and an infinity edge pool, all gently curved to suggest the bend on the riverbank below. Timber framing is used in the new wing and screened porch to suggest a more utilitarian service wing.
