A charmer on the Hudson

When we first met Andy Todd — president of the Greystone on Hudson luxury residential development in Tarrytown — in the late fall of 2016, he toured us around the more than 100-acre site, which opens onto pastoral Taxter Ridge Preserve. Among the houses he had in the works at that time was a charming Dutch Colonial Revival manse — with the characteristic gambrel roof and curved eaves; a turret; and a wrap-around porch — all of which made it at once cozy and commanding.

Now Andy has written us to say that the house, at 20 Carriage Trail, is complete. 

The 9,831-square-foot interior — which includes six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and one powder room — lets the natural beauty of the 2.08-acre site in. Guests are swept through a covered colonnade into an elegant reception room with soaring 20-foot ceilings and stunning views of Taxter Ridge Preserve through walls of glass. Hand-scraped hardwood flooring ushers them past the grand staircase through the generous public rooms, which include a great room, a formal dining room and a living room, all equipped with elegant fireplaces.

The gourmet commercial kitchen and butler’s pantry are outfitted with top-of-the line Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. Additional amenities include room for a home theater, yoga room/gym/spa, staff quarters, a pool, a tennis court and a wine cellar. There is also a laundry room, a pantry and a spacious mudroom.

Throughout, the house offers exquisite detail and quality, including gently sweeping walls of cedar shakes and copper, foundation walls hand-cut from indigenous stone, Old World moldings, fine cabinetry and mahogany windows composed to flood the home with an abundance of natural light.

The second floor sleeping quarters are dominated by the large master suite, which features a sitting room, a private terrace and a master bath with a massage and steam shower and a freestanding massage jet tub for ultimate relaxation. The master closet is a sanctuary filled with natural light and elegant built-ins. Three additional bedroom suites grace the second floor with two additional bedroom suites downstairs, each with its own custom cabinetry, walk-in closet and full bathroom. Integrated speakers and smart home technology throughout keep everyone connected.

The house was designed for living and entertaining on a grand scale inside and out with 2,583 square feet of covered exterior space and verandas on each level, overlooking Taxter Ridge Preserve.
