460 State Route 385 • Athens
Paradise Hill is a private estate perched high above the Hudson River with hundreds of feet of accessible shoreline and bordered by forever-protected lands.
This unique and incomparable house of glass and stone is set on a wooded knoll and is oriented to take advantage of expansive Hudson River views. Come in through the gated entrance and follow the lane through a verdant landscape of mature trees and manicured lawns arriving at this monumental house via a circular drive.
Built in the Pagoda style and influenced by the Royal Palace in Kathmandu, the structure is at once grand but unimposing at the same time, offering a sense of serenity and calm that belies the dramatic interiors.
Most impressive is the double-height great room with walls of glass overlooking the property and the Hudson River. A recently renovated kitchen is efficient and attractive with an adjacent casual dining area. A formal dining area flanks the great room centered by a stone fireplace and of course the wall of glass. Upstairs are three bedrooms, the principal being incorporated around the center core with balconies overlooking the great room. The inside blends with the outside with doors leading out to gardens and walking paths.
A well-maintained and drivable grass lane meanders through the towering trees downhill toward the riverfront. With the Cohotate Preserve adjacent to the south and the Greene Land Trust to the north, your only neighbors are the bald eagles, the blue skies and the friendly forest fairies. Minutes to Hudson, Catskill and Athens; Two hours and a bit from NYC. Namaste.
