About the property

Welcome to a woodsy Hudson Valley escape just 70 minutes from NYC! Sitting on 5.5 acres of land, this 13 room European styled farmhouse was built in 1845. There are 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The most recent restoration was completed in 2000. The house is special for the blend of modern amenities and 175 year old charm.

The house is situated among a pond, a lake, a marsh and a stream. The thriving ecosystem provides exciting sights and sounds that continually change over the course of the day and the seasons. In the morning, the birdsongs will gently wake you, and in the evening you will fall asleep to the rhythmic baritone gulps of the bullfrogs often accompanied by crickets and tree frogs. If the sounds do not enchant you, the storm glass windows will provide adequate sound proofing.

Our home is the perfect getaway spot for both the active and the inert. Grab some sun or a shady nap on the lounge chairs. Sit on the back porch with a book from our extensive library, and enjoy the bucolic scenery. Prefer to exercise? Enjoy the local hiking trails within walking distance, or drive 15 minutes for something a bit more challenging. Shoot some hoops on our 20x20 blacktop, then take a swim in the large in-ground pool. On rainy days, choose a board game, play some cards or curl up in the cozy TV room to watch a movie.

Cooking enthusiasts will be delighted with the extra large Big Green Egg grill/smoker and the large kitchen which is stocked with 2 ovens, 2 sinks, 2 refrigerators, and many chef’s toys: food processor, electric mixer with pasta attachment, ice cream maker, Vitamix blender, electric citrus juicer, Sodastream, and Keurig. Virtually every cooking and food prepping implement is provided. There is an herb garden in just outside the kitchen.

If you become a little restless while relaxing in paradise, there are many options for local excursions: Cold Spring (15 min drive) is a lovely village with restaurants and artisanal shops along its main street, a well-stocked grocery store and wine shop, a Saturday farmer’s market, and a riverfront gazebo complete with a delicious ice cream shop next door. Cold Spring also boasts a wonderful summer Shakespeare festival at the historic Boscobel House and Gardens.

Cross the river to West Point Military Academy (20 min Drive) to take a tour or watch Army athletic events. For a serious day of shopping head to the Woodbury Commons Outlet Village (30 min drive).

There are 2 exceptional cultural destinations local to Garrison: Visit Dia Beacon (25 min drive) to see large scale artwork in a huge former Nabisco box factory. For even more scale, drive to Storm King Art Center, the undisputed world’s greatest outdoor sculpture garden and museum. 500 sprawling acres of gorgeously landscaped grounds house over 100 sculptures of every medium imaginable. The pieces are placed with extreme thoughtfulness to create a perfect marriage of the artworks and their surroundings. On the way home pick up some barbeque from Round Up or fire up the Big Green Egg.

Beautiful property and home

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for our son's graduation from West Point. West Point is right across the river from Garrison so I highly recommend it. The home is truly a gem with so much character. The countryside is beautiful and a great place to take long walks and listen to the variety of animals and birds. The kitchen is spectacular and very well stocked. The living areas are spacious and abundant so its very easy to get some quiet time in. The owner John left us a bottle of wine and the best homemade ice cream you could ever ask for. John was lovely to work with and answered all our questions immediately. This home is perfect for almost any kind of gathering.
