About 168 Fishwoods Road
Fishwoods is a breathtaking property with a meandering river cutting through over 26 acres of woods, meadows, and expansive pollinator gardens. Overlooking the banks of the river and the rushing waterfall is the three-bedroom main house, completely rebuilt over five years with Shou Sugi Ban siding and picture windows. As the home was developed over the past years, every modern luxury had been considered, like the ensuite full baths, central air, custom cabinetry, wood floors from The Hudson Company, and top-quality appliances. The home's main level has an expansive and open space that includes the living and dining rooms, a lavishly appointed kitchen, and an intimate family room, all anchored by a stone wood-burning fireplace in its center. A sizeable primary bedroom suite with floor-to-ceiling windows opens to a private cedar deck with an outdoor shower overlooking the stream and the falls. Another bedroom and full bath complete this level. An independent guest suite on the lower level is reached by an exterior stone pathway lined with the property's most abundant flower plantings. A detached structure with a green roof, matching Shou Sugi Ban siding, and equally impressive views is home to an oversized two-car garage and a woodshop/gym that could be easily converted into an office or guest studio. The landscaping around the house has been cultivated over the years to provide beauty and color from early spring to late fall. The property is filled with woodland walking paths, swimming holes, and a diverse ecosystem, including trout and turtles swimming in the river. A wood-fired cedar hot tub sits on an elevated deck overlooking the gushing waters and surrounding wooded landscapes. There's a veggie garden with raised beds, an outdoor shower, and an invisible fence around the property. Fishwoods offers zero light or noise pollution and is still conveniently situated just minutes from the village of Red Hook, 15 minutes from Rhinebeck, and 25 minutes from Hudson. New York City is just an hour and a half away. When you've had your fill of wild swimming in private swimming holes, hosting dinners on your stone terrace, and hiking through your land, we would always recommend some of our nearby personal favorites, including dinners at Stissing House in Pine Plains, produce and other cooking supplies from the Sugar Hill Farm and Montgomery Place Orchards markets, cheese heaven and the perfect sandwich at the Corner Counter in Red Hook, seasonal U-Pick from Rose Hill and Greig farms, and Buttercup Sanctuary for long walks.
