New York to Kyoto in under 2 hours. An architectural masterpiece in the Hudson Valley, with the aesthetic and unparalleled tranquility of an authentic modern Sukiya style Japanese house. The three bedroom home - the ultimate in comfort and elegance - was built with shoji screens, Tatami and many Japanese finishes by Japanese master craftsmen designed by a well-known Kyoto architect (who worked on the restoration of Katsura Rikyu) and blessed by a famous Japanese Zen abbot. The house opens seamlessly onto a paradise of landscaping - a three acre garden offering waterfalls, walking bridges, a raked dry garden, strolling paths, and a spring-fed pond with its own island. Beyond the garden, eight further forested acres secure the property's peace and privacy. You will find balance, proportion and faultless quality everywhere the eye looks, in both house and garden - and a deeply restorative atmosphere which works it magic instantly.
