Now Seeking $1.9M, This Woodsy Hudson Valley Home Sits Across From a 500-Acre Park

151 Tweed Blvd. in Piermont, New York, is currently listed for $1,850,000 by Richard Ellis of Sotheby’s International Realty.

“Welcome to Birchwood, a trophy home in the Lower Hudson Valley, only 35 minutes from NYC, and across from a 500-acre park. An asymmetrical, fully restored modern home with striking architectural details, it’s set on a wooded mountainside facing the Hudson River, in harmony with its natural environment. The home was designed in 1970 by architect Charles Winter, who was known for building many geometric homes on precipitous sites that ‘fit’ but do not disturb their natural settings. Instead, Winter’s homes flow with their dramatic environments, in a somewhat sculptural, and monumental way. The home’s design features multiple loft-like levels, some open to other spaces/rooms, and the central core of the home is the great room. In the 1980s, architect John Cincotta, known for his green homes, further enhanced this already extraordinary home, with use of additional natural materials.”
