DICKS CASTLE – A MOUNTAIN OASIS This magnificent condominium overlooking the Hudson River is approximately 1-hour north of NYC, located in historic Dicks Castle in Garrison, NY. Dicks Castle was originally built in the early 1900’s and modeled after the Alhambra Palace in Spain. After a couple of owners and renovations in the 70’s and 80’s it was developed and transformed into individual condominiums in the 90’s. Now it is a beautiful estate with only 7 one-of-a-kind homes in a 17-acre setting, with lovely landscaped gardens surrounded by mature woodlands; a perfect year-round residence for those seeking the country life without the maintenance that a home can entail, or, as an easy, care-free weekend retreat. It is minutes from the train, shopping, schools, library cultural entertainment and nature trails. In 2003 this unique 3,357sqft duplex was magnificently built to house 3-bedrooms, 1 spa bathroom with Jacuzzi and double sinks, 4 half-baths and 2 terraces. Enter the first floor to a dramatic living room with wood-burning fireplaces, soaring ceilings, and French doors leading to a teak-cladded terrace overlooking the Hudson River. Stairs from the terrace will lead you to the garden below. From the terrace and the loggia above, soak-in breathtaking panoramic views of the river valley below, Bear Mountain Bridge, West Point and the Shawangunk Ridgeline. On the 2nd level, you’ll enjoy a newly renovated eat-in chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and walk-in baker’s pantry. The Great Room, flanked by 2 wood-burning fireplaces, can accommodate a formal dinner for 12 to a soiree for 60, after which, you can retreat to the adjacent study or sip your after dinner drinks from the loggia. The unique aspect of this home is that it is self-contained from all the others in the Castle. It has a separate basement, storage area, well, and backup generator. Radiant floor heating and central air conditioning will give you the perfect climate throughout the year. A 2-car garage is also included. The low common charges have remained the same since its inception, with no assessments, and taxes of $750/month are one of the lowest in the area. There is truly NOTHING quite like this anywhere in the Hudson Valley. Call or email for an appointment.
