Place: Germantown, N.Y.
The Skinny: Known just as the River Residence, this glassy Hudson Valley getaway was built by architect Barry Price tag in a design that melds post-and-beam architecture with a sturdy Asian influence. Set on 22 riverfront acres, the 6,300-square-foot compound consists of a primary residence, a studio, and elegant Japanese gardens. The river views, after obscured by a dense forest, were unveiled by a thorough pruning, which the owners supervised whilst living in an Airstream trailer on the residence, right after moving out of Manhattan and selling their previous weekend property to finance the construction. Now they’;re ready to move on, and make some money for their efforts. Listed for near to $3M, the River Home lies about 2 hours north of NYC.
