CORNWALL-ON-HUDSON, N.Y., May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce that an architecturally unique steel and glass house, set on 3.4 breathtaking acres at the top of a mountain with panoramic views of the Hudson River, will sell at a live, on-site auction on June 21st. Originally listed for $5.5 million, the property will sell Absolute, meaning it will sell to the highest bidder regardless of price. The sale is being conducted in cooperation with listing Realtor Debbi Golden of Rank Realty.
"To call this home 'unique' would be an understatement. It's truly a one-of-a-kind, offering the ultimate in privacy and serenity. It's the perfect escape from the hustle of New York City, which is only a mere hour away," Golden stated. "I look forward to working alongside Concierge Auctions to name the new owner of this architectural gem on June 21st."
The property, located at 10 Stable Way, is surrounded on three sides by more than 1,600 acres of preserved parklands and undisturbed forests. On a clear day, the view spans 75 miles. The four-bedroom, three full and one half-bathroom estate boasts 5,300 square feet filled with unusual architectural surprises. An example is the custom-designed contemporary fireplace with a two-story exposed, stainless steel dual-flue, visible from inside, or the double-etched translucent glass panels enclosing the bathrooms that provide privacy and ambient lighting from the main living areas. A guest bedroom suite with adjoining sitting room could serve equally well as a home office, exercise room or children's playroom. The media room, with concealed mini bar and sliding doors to a private deck with panoramic views could be used as another bedroom.
The observation deck on the fifth level with 360 degree views is ideal for secluded sunbathing, cocktail parties or stargazing. The north and east of the property is bordered by E. P. Roe Memorial Park, a small grassy bluff named after the famous poet. The view to the south overlooks Storm King Mountain State Park, which preserves over 1,000 acres of lush green riverbank carved millennia ago the same as it was when Henry Hudson sailed 400 years ago. The vista on the opposite riverbank includes 10,000 acres of uninhabited evergreens along the river's edge, part of the Hudson Highlands Parklands. The contours of the property are perfect for the addition of an infinity or negative edge swimming pool.
