About 60 Falls Road

Falls Road, Ghent, NY 12075The Pond House, nestled among 38 private acres of naturally landscaped meadows and extensive walking paths, overlooks a large, undulating pond. The experience unfolds as you arrive down the winding gravel driveway lined with wildflower meadows, ending in a stone path leading up to the cedar-clad and greenery-surrounded house. The single-story, three-bedroom, two-bath home was intentionally built to serve the terrain rather than overwhelm it. The home's design was inspired by the mid-century homes of California and Scandinavia, as well as the iconic shed-roof farm structures found in the area. The exterior is entirely composed of natural-finish Western Red Cedar and immense floor-to-ceiling windows, each framing an astounding view. Immediately upon entering the home, you're pulled towards the living room's continuous bank of windows, revealing the glistening pondscape and its abundance of flora and fauna. The spacious primary suite is to the left, and the corner screened-in verandah is to the right, both with forever vistas over the water and the fields of various native grasses. The guest wing has two bedrooms and a full bath and is separated from the personal living space on the other end for privacy. A large open, high-ceilinged space on the lower level spans the entirety of the home and provides a blank canvas to have an office, a library, a media room, a gym, or all of these. Danish-sourced white oak wood floors, the quality of the kitchen appliances, the bathroom fixtures, the hardware, and the windows all speak to the high caliber of the design and build. The even rhythm of vertical windows throughout, mimicking the tree trunks outside, allows landscape views in multiple directions, reinforcing the sense of expansiveness and connection with nature. The property's outdoors has been designed by one of the most famous landscape architects, Larry Weaner, renowned for meadow landscaping, ecological restoration, and native garden design. A heated pool is surrounded by irrigated plant beds, flowers blooming from spring to late summer, and a raised vegetable garden. Long, winding, well-maintained paths cut through the entire property, perfect for long walks without ever leaving the property. Multiple points along the pond make for the ideal kayak and boat launches, and hang-out spots include a fire pit and in-the-woods dining area. The Pond House is an exceptional, modern expression of a true country home - inviting, remarkably private, and the perfect balance between wild and well-manicured. Ideally located under 10 minutes from Hudson and Kinderhook and just over two hours from New York City.
