A transcendent property enveloped in nature's majesty, La Formentera is a dazzling 110-acre sanctuary resting high on a hilltop in the historic Hudson Valley hamlet of Garrison. More than a country estate, this woodland paradise is a masterpiece of rare distinction and beauty, offering total privacy, brilliant architecture, and sweeping vistas of the fabled Hudson Highlands. An idyllic backdrop to enjoy life's special moments, the distinctive compound includes an elegant modernist main house, a studio/guest house with a 3-car garage, and a circa 1800s caretakers' cottage with a detached 2 car garage, now the caretaker's residence, totaling five structures on the property. Pristine lake, waterfall feeding into a rushing brook, a gorgeous 60' pool, and a stone pool house pavilion with full bath, and an outdoor fireplace offer additional opportunities to experience the ever-changing magic of this beloved estate, which is only an hour's drive from NYC. Artfully re-imagined over 40 years by the current owner, the property has been profiled in countless magazines and is the subject of a recent book. The main house, a Japanese-inspired retreat with a soaring 20' ceiling and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, sits high above the lake. At every vantage point, your eyes fall upon either sophisticated architecture and design or the unmatched beauty of the bucolic surroundings. Effortless indoor/outdoor entertaining can be enjoyed on the wrap-around deck and expansive terrace, offering perfect vantage points to take in the inspiring vistas. The loft-like guest house/studio, which echoes the architecture of the main house with cathedral beamed ceiling, also affords wonderful views of the setting from the interior or the observation decks, which delight's with a wide variety of indigenous and cultivated floral specimens, stands of mature oak, elm, chestnut, and maple trees, lush gardens, fragrant woodland, meandering granite paths and completely restored dry set stone pasture and retaining walls. Whether taking blissful nature walks, relaxing aside the sparkling lake, or hosting glamorous parties at the pool complex, this unforgettable property offers endless opportunities to enjoy the four seasons and life amid truly peaceful surroundings. And with an address on coveted Old Albany Post Road, one of the nation's oldest roads still in use, on the National Historic Register and proximity to the many attractions of Garrison and nearby Cold Spring, there's no better place to enjoy a relaxed country lifestyle than at cherished La Formentera.
