RiverBanks Residence-Foz Design-01-1 Kindesign

A beautiful weekend retreat nods to mid-century modern architecture, recently completed by Foz Design along the banks of the Hudson River in Saugerties, New York. This modern yet warm dwelling was designed for a couple who were looking to have a weekend getaway where they could host friends and family. Melding seamlessly into its natural environment, this custom property has a rustic cabin-like feel with clean lines, natural wood, locally sourced stone, expansive windows and an open layout. With spacious interiors encompassing 6,780 square feet and soaring ceilings of 20 feet high, the atmosphere feels very bright and airy. Cantilevered exterior decks feature spectacular river and landscape views and invites patrons to relax and unwind in a very tranquil environment. Furnishings throughout the home are very cozy and welcoming, the perfect aesthetic for a holiday home. The entire third level is dedicated to the homeowners living quarters, a suite comprising of a home office and a deck that evokes a tree house feel.

The home also offers a guest wing which plays host to the remainder of the four bedrooms, which is accessed by way of a glass enclosed hallway, which is also referenced as “the bridge”, since it is positioned amongst the trees and water. The finishing touches that completes this beautiful home are the exterior living spaces. Designed by landscape architect, Julia Storek Oberhoff, the meticulous landscaping and swimming pool makes the property feel welcoming, especially when its lit up at night… the perfect retreat to enjoy! What are your thoughts, would this be your idea of a perfect vacation home?
