Whatever your needs, this gracious Hudson Valley estate is likely to exceed them. Create the ultimate family compound, an exclusive corporate retreat center, or a luxury artist commune.
The nearly 24-acre property is comprised of five private, wooded parcels with mountain and valley views. Its three separate homes and premier sports complex include 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, indoor and outdoor Olympic-size saltwater swimming pools, and a club-style bar and lounge.
At Hughenden Woods, master woodworking, elegant details and other architectural flourishes abound — from the three-floor, Cary Cook-designed Main House to the newly renovated Guest House, and from the stately Stone House to the Black Acre indoor sports complex with retractable roof.
The Main House
The Main House is built on three levels to the specifications of iconic architect Cary Cook, with one-of-a-kind whimsical touches.
On the first floor is a grand living room with beamed ceiling and fireplace, which opens to a gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances, exquisite imported Italian marble island and countertops and unique details such as pounded copper sinks and mother-of-pearl stoppers.
On the next floor is a four-season sun/workout room and separate game room.
The lower level features an art gallery layout, with state-of-the-art home theater and sitting room, master bedroom, open marble bathroom and additional office/drafting room.
The home's south-facing deck is mere steps from a separate year-round cottage, ideal for an art or yoga studio.
The Guest House
The Guest House is renovated with knotted cedar inside and out, and more architectural flourishes. An open floor plan marries living room with kitchen and dining room, and flows out to an expansive south-facing deck of its own.
The first level is completed by two bedrooms, including an en suite master.
Up the dramatic custom cedar stairwell to the open second level is a second master bedroom suite with separate sitting room and additional outdoor deck. This level is open to the downstairs, allowing excellent natural light throughout.
The Stone House
The Stone House, built in 1951 and recently updated, now serves as the offices, common areas and board room of a corporation but can be converted back into a four- or five-bedroom dwelling.
A library living room with stone hearth fireplace opens to an eat-in kitchen.
Off the board room — or formal dining room — is a large office that can also double as a den, family room or master bedroom, complete with a second fireplace.
Three more rooms can all also serve as bedrooms, including an en suite master.
Outside, the expansive lawns offer majestic mountain and valley views, with an outdoor tennis court, saltwater swimming pool and private changing cottage.
Black Acre is a top-of-the-line on-site indoor sports complex with a retractable roof, featuring an indoor tennis court and Olympic-size pool, surrounded by radiant-heated stone.
Looking out at the pool is an old-school lounge with mahogany bar and fireplace.
There are also two locker rooms, each with a shower and sauna, as well as an office and kitchenette. There's even an energy-efficient studio apartment, if you and some friends decide to stay after a light-night tennis match and moonlit swim.
