A double-height ceiling creates a sense of volume in the great room of this lakefront house. Plate glass walls provide remarkable views of the water.

This 3,940 square foot, contemporary four bedroom hilltop retreat was designed with year-round living in mind, with vast expenses of insulated glass providing views of the Catskill Mountains and the lush surrounding woodlands. 

Just two hours drive from New York City, the structure’s crystalline fa├žade is carefully hidden within the landscape, merging the architectural footprint with the Rhinebeck foothills. A private equestrian facility, complete with stables and an indoor riding arena provides a horse lover’s dream come true. Bard College and the Fisher Center for the Performing Arts, designed by Frank Gehry, is minutes away, as are the historic Vanderbilt and Livingston mansions on the Hudson.
