Plans for Catskill Terraces feature 10 stunning luxury homes nestled on 88 acres of idyllic wooded land in the Hudson Valley.

The Hudson Valley is full of breathtaking wilderness. Majestic mountains draw hikers in every season of the year, from fall leaf-peepers to summer waterfall seekers. Many Airbnbs and hotels capitalize on the region’s one-of-a-kind natural spaces, offering farm stays, elevated cabins, European-style lushnas, and Hudson River views. These escapes revitalize and renew.

But wouldn’t it be great to live in a place that’s surrounded by the forest? Catskill Terraces realizes that dream.


The new project is thanks to HV Contemporary Homes, which started making custom contemporary homes in 2011. For Catskill Terraces, the firm draws inspiration from the culture and community of the region, and partners with Studio MM Architect to bring to life luxurious properties that harmonize nature and modernity.

For HV Contemporary Homes, it all starts with the land. In Saugerties, 88 idyllic acres host the Ulster County project, which boasts steep cliff faces that create terraces, or steps. Each platform overlooks some of the prettiest parts of the Catskills, making this the perfect spot to develop lots for luxury dwellings. A few terrace lots even look out at Kaaterskill Wild Forest. On these sites, 10 modern homes will be built.

Secluded by nature, Catskill Terraces presents true privacy, with precious fauna residing in quiet wetlands nearby. Deer run along shady trails, and birds fly over iconic mossy bluffs. Greenbelt areas in each lot support wildlife conservation, protecting habitats in the Catskills.

Homes can be selected in lots on the Lower Terraces and Upper Terraces. Six modern residences stand along the former, while the latter features four homes. From the very lowest step to the highest, there’s a 230-ft elevation gain. Lot Six has already been reserved, pending approvals.

Along with the location, part of what makes Catskill Terraces special is that each one-of-a-kind design will only be built once. Extremely talented architects infuse Catskill Terraces with individuality and artistic flourishes. Plus, future homeowners can select pre-designed additions like gorgeous inground pools, chic guest houses, and carports. In a similar vein, options for fixtures and finishes permit even more customization. Buyers must acquire land parcels, then work with Catskill Terraces to identify the perfect combination of lot and design, with the following plans available:

Plan Séquence

2+ bedrooms | 2 bathrooms
9.35 acres | 2,271 sq ft
Available add-ons: Shade canopy and deck, garden patio, pool, guest house

Named after a camera technique in film, Plan Séquence is a one-story structure originally designed for Lot One. A horizontal design stands out against the verticality of Catskill Terraces. Within a shifted floor plan, this design puts glorious Valley views into frame. Open, modern, and luxurious, this stunning design can be further enhanced by a pool with a guest house.

Asking price:  $1,800,000

The Pinwheel House

2 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms
6.61 acres | 1,940 sq ft
Available add-ons: Guest house, carport, pool and pool house

Pinwheel House blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor space. Partitions along the house give it the appearance of a pinwheel. If you love spending time outdoors in the Catskills, this is the design for you. The unique exterior offers spaces for open-air dining, private patios, and leaf-peeping from a large rear deck. Privacy and relaxation are major draws of this design. Floor-to-ceiling windows, large bedroom suites, and an add-on pool house sweeten the deal.

Catskill Terraces Canopy


3+ bedrooms | 3 bathrooms
5.42 acres | 2,445 sq ft
Available add-ons: Garden and deck, pool and pool deck

Have you ever wanted to live in a treehouse? Catskill Terraces runs with that concept through Canopy. This raised home creates the effect of living in a dense forest. Extra height and expansive windows grant views in all directions. Private bedrooms sit at both ends of the home, making Canopy a great property for families and people who enjoy hosting and entertaining. Lot Six, the site Canopy’s designers originally had in mind for this plan, is already reserved. However, this design works on three other lots at Catskill Terraces. Decks on two floors connect to outdoor areas, and a massive double-height entryway creates an unforgettable atmosphere.

Asking price: $2,125,000
