Just an hour north of Greenwich in the little town of Poughquag, this yurt-style cabin nestled on 37 acres of rolling hills and woodlands provides a unique opportunity to explore nature from every angle. 

The home was built in 2017 by Home Enrichment Company, master housewrights known in the area for fine craftsmanship and a portfolio of luxury builds and renovations. The structure is formed by two yurt-shaped buildings connected by a temperature-controlled breezeway to create the house. The main house holds two bedrooms, a full bath, a loft with half bath and a finished, walk-out basement. The smaller building has an additional bedroom and bathroom ideal for multi-generational living. 

Cedar siding seamlessly blends with the surrounding landscape. Yurts are designed to allow the dweller to connect intimately with the surrounding landscape because of their circular style and abundant windows. “This property serves as a potent reminder that we are one with nature, offering the opportunity to fully immerse ourselves in that understanding on a daily basis,” says Christina Weiss, real estate salesperson with Houlihan Lawrence in Katonah, NY. 

The property includes a saltwater pool, outdoor shower, garden, chicken coop, wildflower fields, a rolling brook and direct access to the Appalachian Trail. “This home could easily be transformed into a hobby farm or serve as a second home to someone seeking to balance their city life with country living,” says Weiss. 

Sunsets here are “spiritual” says Weiss. Everything about the home, from the circular design to the singular closet is intentionally designed to promote minimalism, being present and connecting with nature. “When you look around, you feel like you are on your own private hill, gazing out into the rolling mountains and sunset vistas,” adds Weiss. 

Minimalist doesn’t mean without luxuries. The house has a built-in Sonos sound system, custom cabinetry with marble countertops and top-grade appliances, including a large refrigerator and freezer. Both bathrooms have large soaking tubs as well as showers, for peaceful pampering.

With Metro-North trains stopping in nearby Pawling, and easy access to the Taconic Parkway, weekends in the country are easy access to city and suburb dwellers. Homeowners can grow their own veggies but outings to pick up locally grown produce from Maple View Farm or Barton Orchards provide for enjoyable weekend activities. “Barton Orchards, a nine-minute drive away, is a premier destination for ‘Pick-your-own’ apples and pumpkins,” says Weiss. “With year-round festivals and a Tap Room offering local craft beer, wine and cider, there is always something delightful to experience.” A 13-minute drive away, McKinney and Doyle is known for its bakery and restaurant offerings.
