Property Photo


Here is an opportunity to own a unique home. Located in the town of Taghkanic, it recently won second place (among 50 entries) in the American-Architects U.S. Building of the Year competition. This 3-BR/2.5-BA, 2, 500 sf, all-season weekend home is sited on nearly 15 acres of open, rolling meadows, a setting that affords privacy, as well as dramatic valley & mountain views. As enigmatic as it is practical, the structure has intimate spaces for cooking, dining, & living, a tall, thin vertical slice for circulation, & a dramatic entry gallery. The sustainably-sourced Accoya wood skin, charred by a Japanese finishing technique called 'shou sugi ban, ' gives the house's facade a rough, weathered texture, a contemporary reinterpretation of the exteriors of old barns in the Hudson Valley. Both ends of the home feature glass walls for maximal views of the surrounding countryside, and it has all of the accoutrements of the modern lifestyle. 2 hrs. from NYC.
