Address: 2707 Rte 17M, Chester
Description: A passion project for the owners of Foxfire Mountain House, a bohemian retreat in Mount Tremper, Foxfire La Colina is on the market in the Hudson Valley through This Old Hudson. The 1930s Spanish-style estate was originally intended as an escape and event venue in Chester. Now up for sale, the property is a picture-perfect dream home for anyone who craves a taste of European flair in the Hudson Valley.
Across the 46-acre estate, rich architectural details abound. The building itself was constructed by the great-grandson of Secretary of State William Henry Seward and incorporates eye-catching elements like patterned Mexican tiles, wrought iron gates, and beamed ceilings. In the main property, four bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious for families and guests. The master bedroom is ultra-luxe and comes with its own mirrored dressing room and ensuite bath.
In the chef’s kitchen, a double-wide stainless fridge and French Lacanche enamel brass range create a space that’s a true culinary paradise. As if that wasn’t dreamy enough, did we mention La Colina comes fully furnished?
Outside, the 46 private acres are equally luxurious. Breathtaking Hudson Valley views of farmlands and mountains harmonize with the residence’s mature landscaping and gunite swimming pool. Elsewhere, a barn with horse stalls is a must for anyone who craves a permanent place to ride in the region. Gardeners will adore the raised garden beds and potting shed, while perennial hosts will make the most of the four cabana rooms with ensuite bathrooms. In fact, La Colina is ideal for welcoming guests and features charming stone patios around the house, with an interior courtyard that’s a delight for intimate dinners.
Asking price: $1,195,000
Selling points: Because it was designed by the dynamic duo behind Foxfire Mountain House, La Colina is stunning from every angle. It comes fully furnished, so prospective residents can move right into a home that looks like it’s straight from the pages of a magazine spread.
As far as amenities go, La Colina has something for everyone. There’s a pool, gardening, horse stalls, and acres for days. Nearby, attractions like the Orange Heritage Trail, Orange County Distillery, and Equilibrium Brewery await for Hudson Valley adventures.
