About 537 State Route 208

Welcome to Ridgeview, a true sanctuary nestled in the most sought after, Hudson Valley. This estate, aptly named for its commanding vistas of the Shawangunk Ridge and Mohonk's Skytop, embodies a rarely rivaled fusion of privacy and natural splendor. Accessed via a paved driveway, this haven sprawls over 38 acres, with a home offering over 6000 square feet of impeccably crafted living space. Among its myriad of charms, discerning guests will find it challenging to pinpoint a single highlight—be it the exceptional location, the generous interiors, the most spacious bluestone patio, the tranquil pond, or the awe-inspiring panoramas. Once ensconced within its embrace, leaving becomes a distant notion. As the allure of the outdoors beckons, it is the meticulously curated exterior that elevates al fresco living to an art form. From the artfully constructed stone retaining walls to the ambient glow of gas lanterns, every facet of the outdoors is a testament to thoughtful design. A bluestone patio, with a custom-built stone fireplace, sets the stage for lively gatherings, while a full-sized basketball court, at night bathed in the glow of stadium lighting, invites spirited competition. A heated saltwater pool, with a granite diving board, promises languid afternoons of leisure, while the weatherproof large screen television can transform movie nights into cinematic affair under the stars. Entering beneath the expansive portico, guests are welcomed by the embrace of a large wraparound porch. Inside, an open floor plan unfolds, seamlessly integrating the interior with the breathtaking backdrops of nature. A gas fireplace casts its warm glow on the great room, while a coveted octagonal screen porch offers an idyllic setting for alfresco dining. The dining room, chef's kitchen replete with Viking double oven, and inviting great room converge in harmonious unity, fostering effortless flow. The main floor further encompasses a primary suite, outfitted with a large walk-in closet, a 2 part, en-suite bath (double sinks separate from the shower and soaking tub), plus a bonus room, and, then two additional bedrooms, a full & half bath and a spacious laundry room. Going up? Take the elevator to the second floor (or down to the basement) revealing over 2300 square feet of living space—each room of voluminous proportions and panoramic vistas. The 2nd floor boasts four generously appointed bedrooms, a media/game room, a full bath, several closets and a common area. Venturing to the basement, with a walkout through the three-car garage, find a space that combines leisure and utility. Currently housing a well-appointed gym and game room, this subterranean sanctuary offers ample storage space for all accoutrements of leisure and life. Beyond the main residence, a detached three-car garage (like you've never seen!) provides shelter for cherished vehicles and toys alike. With added improvements such as closed-cell spray foam insulation, a perforated plastic floor to allow for drainage while washing your toys, a dog washing station, and custom-built shelving, this auxiliary structure epitomizes both form and function, in the coolest way! A meandering path invites exploration of the picturesque pond, where tranquil moments are spent amidst the serenity of nature's embrace. Here, boulders offer vantage points from which to observe the ornamental Koi fish, performing their graceful ballet beneath the shimmering surface. An ethos of sustainability envelopes the property, with solar panels adorning both the main residence and detached garage, alongside high-efficiency Mitsubishi heat pumps. Recent enhancements, including new roofs on both buildings, LED lighting, and an integrated audio/video system, underscore a commitment to both modernity and conservation. In sum, Ridgeview provides an oasis of tranquility and serenity amidst the splendor of the Gardiner NY. Minutes from some of the world's best climbing, restaurants, art gal
