70 Dogwood Drive, Hudson, NY
Perched on the side of Mt. Merino, this exquisitely designed home by architect Joel Sanders, takes dramatic advantage of the breathtaking views of the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains made famous by the Hudson River School painters of the late 19th century. The exterior is clad in cedar. The interior is a contrast of bamboo floors and wall paneling and a white concrete shell that beautifully define the house's more intimate living spaces. The loft-like living, dining, and adjoining master bedroom are all oriented along a horizontal window wall which provides a panoramic view. The lower level private guest suite offers the same panoramic view. From the living room one can descend a floating wood staircase into the den below or step outside to the pool area, where a concrete ramp leads down to a porch used for alfresco dining or lounging by the hot tub. Winner of the 2010 New York State American Institute of Architects Residential Award of Excellence.
