Location: Hudson, New York
With views that make you feel like the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains were made for your eyes only, this 2008-built home by New York City-based architect Joel Sanders is far from the usual upstate retreat. The house, marked by a dramatic butterfly roofline supported by V-shaped beams, unveils the gorgeous natural backdrop at every turn. The main level contains an open-plan living and dining room with a glass wall and balcony facing the river and mountains, as well as a master bedroom suite with the same views.
According to Mansion Global, the originally 2,200-square-foot house was updated and expanded to 3,000 square feet by Sanders at the current owners' request. The lower level of the home now contains two guest bedrooms, with additional expansion still a possibility on the four-acre property. Designed for enjoying stunning views inside and out, the balcony outside the main living space leads to a terrace with a heated pool and dining area. There's also a more intimate courtyard on the ground level.
