Developer Mark Mancinelli has created this hilltop home sitting more than 1,000 feet above sea level is all about the view. “The Hudson River has been a source of beauty and inspiration for centuries, and the view from 20 Windy Ridge is among the most expansive and awe inspiring,” says Melissa Carlton, listing agent for Houlihan Lawrence in Cold Spring, NY. The property boasts southern and western views of the Hudson River, West Point and Hudson Highlands—but with total privacy to the homeowner.
Mancinelli is a Hudson Valley native and the developer’s sense of connection to the landscape is evident in the development of this home. “His design approach is to create inside-out homes that allow the dramatic elements of nature in the Hudson Valley to be incorporated into the home through the use of large glass panels, disappearing walls and exterior terracing integrated with interior living space,” says Carlton.
While modern and filled with luxurious amenities like a pro chef’s kitchen and gorgeous maWhile modern and filled with luxurious amenities like a pro chef’s kitchen and gorgeous marble baths, the four-bedroom home is tied to the landscape with lots of natural elements, like stone, steel, glass and rich dark wood.
A massive marble fireplace anchors the living room and the open concept living and dining space, which are bounded by walls of glass, lead directly to an 1,800-square-foot glass-framed terrace floating above the tree line. The home features more than 3,200 square feet of terraced outdoor living space (spanning all three levels). In fact, the primary bedroom has a retractable wall of glass to reveal a 560-foot terrace.
Outside, there is a gunite pool with 1,600 square feet of bluestone patio surround with landscaped gardens beyond. Surrounding the landscaped property are four wooded acres with deeded and unbuildable parcels beyond.
Adds Carlton: “This home was designed so that there is no defined interior and exterior spaces, but rather one large uninterrupted space that offers a myriad of ways to experience the Hudson River.”
