So you’ve got the Midtown apartment that you’re paying through the nose for, yet, ironically, it’s that same nose which you’re depriving of the kinds of fresh scents that can only come with scads of green grass and ancient trees. 100 miles north of New York City (Kerhonkson, NY), there’s a new place to inject some rural peace and quiet, while still living luxuriously: It’s called Hudson Woods.
Stretched out over 131 acres, this architect-driven, modern-meets-natural development features 26 glass-and-timber homes that have been meticulously crafted from locally-sourced, sustainable materials. From hand crafted finishes like Mahogany windows, to the premium equipment inside like NEST thermostats, there’s a lot of top-shelf TLC to savor in each 2,800 square foot home (3 bedrroms, 2 bathrooms). And compared to NYC, the little plot of land each home comes with will feel like Central Park. [Purchase]
