An architect’s Hudson Valley home with soaring ceilings, glass walls, and multiple terraces can be yours for $5.9 million. Designed by a Westchester-based architect, the unique property at 18 Bramblebush Road in Croton-on-Hudson is perched atop a hillside and boasts a glass facade, allowing for uninterrupted river and mountain views.
Found at the end of a gated 1,600-foot-long driveway, the home was built in 1990. The impressive property has five bedrooms, seven and a half baths, and sits on over 14 acres of land.
The residence features an open floor plan with palatial-sized rooms. On the first floor, there are several different living areas, with a soaring entryway with skylights and a nearly sunken living room greeting guests.
The angular design of the home allows for a variety of nooks and uniquely shaped spaces, which the owner turned into a corner game room, an office, library, and a huge media room.
On the other end of this level is the massive chef’s kitchen with tons of counter space, a huge center island, and a breakfast bar. An additional breakfast nook is tucked away in the corner next to the kitchen with the formal dining room closer to the front of the home.
A rounded bow window sits at the center of this level, overlooking the outdoor space and the mountains and woods in the distance. The living spaces offer 12-foot ceilings, crisp white walls, and light oak flooring.
The second floor is home to the enormous primary bedroom, which sits in the center of either side of the bedroom wings. The main suite has incredible 28-foot-tall ceilings, two walk-in closets, two sitting areas, and two full baths. It also has access to the huge ship-like balcony.
The four remaining bedrooms all have their own baths and sitting views facing the backyard and beyond. A lower level of the home has another kitchen, a home theater, a recreation room, and a heated five-car garage.
Outside, the home has six acres of lawns, multiple terraces and overlooks, and a saltwater pool. As the listing describes, this property is “an ever-changing showcase of light and nature.”
Just 35 miles from Midtown, Croton-on-Hudson is a quaint village, but with plenty of dining and entertainment options. Plus, the neighborhood is a stop on Metro-North’s Hudson Line and Amtrak along the Empire Corridor.
