Urbanites looking to escape the concrete jungle take note: a new development of 2,800-square-foot cabins built by Lang Architecture is only two hours from Manhattan and will be ready in 2016. Set on 131 acres of forest in the Hudson River Valley, the development isn't far from the small ski hill of Belleayre Mountain. Called Hudson Woods, the project includes 26 energy efficient, 3-bedroom, 2 or 3-bath houses that come with a bunch of quirky custom options, like a wood-burning stove, outdoor cooking, greenhouse, or our favorite option, a tree house. The interiors are made with mahogany windows, white oak flooring and cabinetry and other locally-sourced, sustainable materials. All "green" features aside, we're partial to the prime forest setting, wraparound deck, picturesque pool (available at extra cost), and simple, light-filled interiors. A separate garage/studio area offers additional storage or room for an epic game of ping pong. Lot prices start at around $765,000 and are available here.
