About

If you like modern design and care-free living (not to mention the great outdoors) you will love our place, a sweeping single-level corrugated steel and glass home designed by the NY architect Walter Chatham and set on 4.2 private acres. (See link for pix.) The house has three full bedrooms, a home office, a den with a desk in the corner, living room, dining room, kitchen, walk-in pantry, screened porch enclosed by translucent panels in winter, a large emergency generator in case of power outage, and two covered parking spaces. Note that the price includes virtually everything; we can even arrange cleaning service if you want it (but at your expense). Our place is two hours from NYC and the train ride, along the Hudson, is one of the world's most beautiful (our station is Rhinecliff). Cross-country and downhill skiing, walk to sushi, 5 mins to Gehry-designed performing arts center at Bard, short drive to Vanderbilt and other estates, Frederic Church's Olana, the antique haven of Hudson, NY etc. The house is in a charming village minutes from Bard College, which runs a shuttle between the village, campus and the larger village of Red Hook. Restaurants, library, bakery, small grocer, wine store, post office etc are all just a short walk. We also have the Dutchess County Loop Bus, which provides service south through local communities all the way to the Poughkeepsie RR station. The house is fully furnished with tasteful modern pieces including new sofas from Mitchell Gold. Amenities include a wood stove, central air conditioning, washer/dryer, two dishwashers, fridge with ice maker, dual-fuel stove, big screen LCD TV, built in stereo connected to Airport Express, maple floors, piano. Monthly rent INCLUDES electricity, heat, water and sewer, high-speed Internet, cable TV, wifi, phone, snow removal for driveway and parking area, and landscaping service. (We ask only that you exercise common sense and not waste energy.) It's available for the academic year starting in Sept. 2021. No pets, no smoking. Please note that the guesthouse (a grain bin visible in some photos) is not included with the rental. For more images: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8qm43xxitaurbvq/AACIsk7jEZOV8k7vGa2qn7tsa?dl=0
