201 Swartekill Road, Esopus, NY, 12528
    • Remarks: Incomparable Lakeside Estate on Hudson Valley’s Only Available Private Lake This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a magnificent compound across 164 majestic acres with one of the largest private lakes in the Hudson Valley at 25 acres. ‘Auchmoody’ was originally conceived in 1930 and has a rich history of both privacy and play, having served as both a nudist colony and a modern lakeside playground. Located on a quiet road in Esopus and a short drive from Kingston and New Paltz, Auchmoody is only 90 minutes up the Hudson River from Manhattan by car. One enters the estate through a long, gated drive and is immediately taken by the curated grounds, mature trees, the immense lake, and an incredible sense of tranquility. The compound includes a stone main residence of approximately 7, 000 square feet, offering 2 primary bedroom suites, 3 guest bedrooms and impressive common areas – including a formal dining room that can accommodate 24 guests. All rooms offer extraordinary views, with most overlooking the lake, the waterfall, and the expansive land beyond. From the primary rooms, one enters a deck that stretches out onto the 25-acre lake, affording them everything from watercraft & jet skis to swimming, paddle-boarding, and fishing – all in a pristine, park like setting. The vintage, stone outbuildings include a 3-bedroom boat house with fireplace and a large covered portico with outdoor fireplace and an additional 960 Sq Ft one bedroom guest cottage all perched perfectly on the lakeside. Additional outbuildings include a one bedroom cedar cottage, a 2-bedroom caretaker’s house, a three-level barn, and a large kennel. This incredible compound is a rare offering and one of the most magnificent properties to ever come to market. Whether arriving by car, helicopter, or sea-plane, if you are looking for a private, lakeside retreat, Auchmoody must be seen. Total Sq Footage is 11, 000 including Main House, Boathouse, (Three bedrooms) 2, One bedroom guest cottages and a 2 bedroom caretakers house.
