MODERN MASTERPIECE DIRECTLY ON THE BANKS OF THE HUDSON RIVER.
A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a breathtaking, gated estate which can never be built again. This magnificent architectural gem lies on a rock ledge cantilevering the Hudson River surrounded by 10+ private acres. Current setback laws require homes on riverfront parcels to now be built at least 100 feet from the river, making Ledgerock extremely rare and one-of-a-kind.
Ledgerock is an engineering feat that was five years in the making. Designed by renowned architect Lee Ledbetter, Ledgerock is itself an elegant architectural sculpture designed to make you feel like you are floating on the river, while offering unparalleled views of the Catskill Mountains. To reach the main residence visitors enter through a gate flanked by sculptures of mythological temple guards, then drive a quarter mile down the driveway, across a private railroad crossing, straight to the bank of the Hudson River. There they are greeted by the roughly 15,000-square-foot, limestone-and-glass residence which hugs the shoreline, hovering over the water providing an unparalleled view of the boats sailing along the Hudson.
From the passing boats to fiery sunsets, every room of the magnificent main residence frames its breathtaking views through walls of glass, ranging from 18 to 28 feet high. The construction of Ledgerock combines the work of European craftsmen and the finest materials available, including exotic woods and rare stones from Africa, South America and Europe, and a facade wrapped with 40,000 square feet of fossilized French limestone. Every detail of the interior was meticulously designed and executed.
In addition to the travertine decks hovering just over the water the property boasts a sculpture garden with more than 50 sculptures enhancing the landscaped grounds. The exterior living space includes a 5,000 square feet travertine deck with a built-in gunite salt-water pool, outdoor kitchen, firepit and dramatic hot tub - all perched over the Hudson.
In addition to the main residence, there is a staff apartment, a 2,500+/- square foot guest house, garage space for 9-18 cars and a carwash. The main residence also has a theater room, an indoor swimming pool, spa and gym. Only 90 minutes from Manhattan, Ledgerock is easily accessible by car, sea-plane or helicopter - with a landing pad directly outside the front door, and dock outside the back door.
