Cool Listings, Upstate

This historic mansion in the Hudson Valley has lived many lives, starting in 1906 as a hunting lodge for an heir to a soap fortune to most recently, a bed and breakfast decked out with antiques. Today, the seven-bedroom property at 317 Allen Street in Hudson, New York, now dubbed Tiger House, is on the market for $1,950,000, giving the new owners a chance to shape the unique home’s next chapter.

Gates Merkulova Architects, weathered skin, House on the Hil, NYC-based art collectors, old farmhouse, Columbia County, passive home, energy-efficient home

The owners of the “House on the Hill” in upstate New York are a couple of NYC-based art collectors who for the past twenty-five years have spent their weekends in an old farmhouse in Columbia County. In love with the sweeping views and the near-untouched landscape that greeted them every time they made the trip up, they decided they wanted to build an eco-friendly passive house in the middle of a forest clearing nearby. With the idea of living a simpler and more efficient life in mind, they asked Gates Merkulova Architects to build them a shelter designed with materials that would age as gracefully as they hoped to with time.
