Three Great Hudson River Lifestyle Properties
I live in a 130 year old home on the Hudson River and wouldn’t trade it for any place on Earth, (even Ipanema)! When I’m not out selling Hudson Valley homes, I’m usually home taking pictures of all the things I see each day on the Hudson. I'm on the Ulster County side which faces east and gets incredible sun and moon rises, (my cell phone is filled with pictures of them). During low tide (a lot of people don’t know the Hudson is a tidal waterway) I can walk out almost to the shipping channel.
There are three properties that have recently come up for sale on the river. I've been in all 3! Hudson River properties are rare and usually sell fast so as soon as they're available I see them!
This first home is one I almost bought myself when I was looking for a home twelve years ago. The home is on River road which is one of the most scenic roads (without much traffic) in the Hudson Valley. You can walk across the street and down to your boat which is docked at your own private beach. Almost 5 acres AND your own private beach…what more can you want?
94 River Road, Ulster Park - MLS# 20142236
The second home is a classic farmhouse on 57 acres and a second bungalow apartment that comes with 1,000 feet of river frontage. The grounds are like having your own private nature preserve around your home. The home itself could use some updates, but has very classic original features throughout the home.

37-43 River Road, Saugerties - MLS#20140024
This is a luxurious new construction home that has everything someone looking for something very special. “New construction” homes are not my favorite style of home, but this one really just blew me away. It really has EVERYTHING including a “boat house” for either your guests or to rent out for extra income. The boat house actually comes with a boat and jet ski so the new owners can get right out and explore the Hudson!
It’s in the hamlet of Malden on the Hudson which is just next to Saugerties.
Enjoy the holiday weekend - hope you get to spend some time on the river.
