RARE ARTIST’S RETREAT ON 4 ACRES WITH POOL & VINTAGE BARN Created for artist and graphic designer Joseph Caroff – celebrated for his iconic logos and abstract artwork – this spectacular 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 2137 sqft contemporary is offered fully furnished* and features bright, open spaces, high ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows sure to inspire. Located near the Hudson River, peace and privacy are ensured by the long private drive that passes spectacular woods, low stone walls, beautifully maintained grounds, and a seasonal creek. As in any artist’s home, light is paramount: Here, changing sunlight plays across light oak floors, crisp white walls, and the silver-gray theme of the elegant yet casual kitchen. The view from the kitchen bar encompasses a graceful lawn, sweet pond, and antique barn. Wildlife can be glimpsed from almost every window; a good spot to observe nature is from the soaring windows of the great room (composed of the living and dining areas). Spaces within the home offer intriguing possibilities: A dramatic loft space can serve as an artist’s or writer’s studio, home office, or third bedroom. The four-season sunroom can be used as a reading room or office overlooking a rear deck and 40-foot lap pool. Close to the Mid-Hudson Bridge and both MetroNorth and Amtrak train services to Manhattan, this lovely property can be enjoyed as a weekend retreat or full-time home (perfect for remote work and perhaps the occasional trip into the City for business or pleasure). While this property is very private, the social and adventurous will find much to explore nearby: farm-to-table restaurants, vineyards, orchards, Walkway Over the Hudson, Minnewaska State Park, famed Shawangunks, vibrant college town of New Paltz, Kingston Waterfront, and other desirable Hudson Valley attractions. A 90-minute drive from the George Washington Bridge. Fifteen minutes by car to the Poughkeepsie train station. *Please note: This home is offered fully furnished with the exception of original artwork and some personal decor.
