This 3.41-acre hilltop retreat in the village of Dobbs Ferry, NY, only 22 miles from NYC, offers a stunning contemporary home with panoramic views of the Hudson River and Ramapo Mountains as well as landscaped patios, a roof deck, a gunite pool and pool house. The six-bedroom home with a distinctive barreled metal roof, on the market for $3.8 million, sits on land that was once part of a 200-acre estate purchased in 1929 by Joseph Patterson, publisher of the New York Daily News.

Beneath a barreled roof is an organic floor plan with a two-story living room. Accents include a ceiling-height stone fireplace and a glass wall overlooking a bluestone patio.

At the heart of the house are a dining room and open chef’s kitchen flanked by a patio. Surrounding rooms include a spacious pantry and a homework room, playroom, den and gym.

The house offers six bedrooms including a primary suite with its own sun deck. Also present are a guest/nanny suite, a library/office, a mudroom and a three-car garage.

Outdoor entertaining areas include a rooftop deck with the aforementioned river and mountain views. Surrounding patio space is perfect for alfresco dining. A gunite pool and pool house lie just across the lawn.

The home was designed in 2007 by Westchester architect Stephen Tilly, whose work focuses on sustainability and renewable energy. The eco-friendly house pairs solar and geothermal heating and cooling systems (with 68 rooftop solar panels), reducing energy usage costs and working independently of the power grid for 6-7 months of the year.
