Rivers Edge, an estate sitting on 8 acres located on the Hudson River in Saugerties, NY, is a contemporary home with two wings that underwent a full renovation in 2016 by KDA Architecture. The result is a stunning Hudson Valley luxury White Farmhouse in a LA Zen style. Enter the Main Wing along a white travertine walkway lined with planted boxwoods into a double height living room. Incredible floor to ceiling windows set a scene of a house that lives with the river, offering panoramic views south to the Kingston Rhinecliff bridge and north to the Rip Van Winkle bridge. The living room features a large wood burning fireplace and is open to a luxury kitchen. The Calacatta marble island extends into a casual dining area with seating for nine. A six burner Wolf range with grill, Sub Zero refrigerator, two Miele dishwashers, double sinks and an under counter Wolf microwave complete the kitchen. The adjacent dining room has travertine flooring and glass doors on three sides which continue the visual sensation of bringing the river view into the home. Other rooms on the ground floor of the main wing include a media room with a 1/2 bath, a primary bedroom suite with two generous walk-in closets and a luxury bath, and a second bedroom with an ensuite bath. Upstairs in the main wing is an office workspace/library that leads to an outdoor balcony with stunning views. There is also a pool table in a large loft space complete with a propane fireplace, and two additional bedrooms, each with ensuite baths. The Main Wing's ground and first floors have underfloor heating throughout. The Main Wing is completed by a basement that houses a large media/games room as well as a wine cellar and a utility room. The two wings of the home are connected by a room that evokes the feeling of a 5-star luxury hotel destination — an indoor gunite swimming pool with a bar area, lounge and full bath. A Desert Aire de-humidification system is installed. In the North Wing there is a full gym, a two car garage, a two bedroom apartment and a studio apartment for guests or staff. Travertine patios are set around the home which include an outdoor dining area that can be automatically enclosed with screening on all sides.
