20 Windy Ridge
Cold Spring, NY

Creating an unsurpassed private retreat perched more than a thousand feet above sea level with far-reaching unobstructed views of the Hudson River and the surrounding Hudson Highlands, this extraordinary residence has been artfully redesigned, and along with a complete top-to-bottom renovation, it effortlessly integrates spacious loft-like architectural spaces with the ever-changing natural beauty of the Hudson Valley. Conceptualized by noted architect Gregory Sharp and developed by Mark Mancinelli, it features walls of glass and expansive terraces on three levels that highlight the commanding views while retaining absolute privacy and solitude. The open-style main level of the residence is breathtaking. Along with a chef’s kitchen with professional-quality appliances (complete with a wood burning pizza oven) and living and dining rooms anchored by a massive marble fireplace, it’s bounded by walls of glass that fully pocket-away to reveal a cantilevered 1800 square feet terrace floating above the tree line. A double-height reading or music room features 16′ walls of glass facing west to Storm King Mountain and south to West Point; and a private entertaining room is complemented with a fireplace and walnut cabinetry. Accessed by a winding geometric bent-steel and wood staircase that creates a cross sectional view through all levels of the house, a privately-set bedroom has a marble-appointed bath with an oversize picture windows taking-in the river views. The main bedroom is framed by a south-facing retractable wall of glass allowing unobstructed cloud-level views along the Hudson River on the private 560′ terrace. Its spa-quality bath features fully-marbled walls and ceilings, a water closet, soaking tub, large vanity with dual sinks, and a massive walk-in shower with bench and expansive glass windows facing the mountainside. The garden level, in addition to a home office, and a flexible two-bedroom suite opening to the lawn and gardens, is centered by a media-fitted recreation room with walls of glass that fully-retract to the spacious terrace with stone fireplace and deep water pool. A true private getaway, this exceptional contemporary residence is minutes to every year-round recreational amenity of the Hudson Valley and less than 50 miles to NYC.
