It was their mutual desire as a couple in having Glenco Mills Farm built, to have a home with as little visual impact on the gorgeous Hudson Valley countryside as possible and to ensure a level of privacy for them and their family of young children. Working with the celebrated architect Thomas Phifer, and landscape designer Dan Kiley, they created what is an award-winning house of glass, steel and wood. The structure of which blends perfectly into the rolling hills and woodlands of this stunningly beautiful area, near the town of Hudson, Glenco Mills has been featured in Architectural Record, Elle Decor and many others. As you approach the house, it emerges from the landscape as what seems to be a Modernist glass villa hovering serenely in the landscape. Then the lower level appears, a fascia of glass-walled rooms. The upper level is a 30X60 ft glass walled living and dinning room with 15ft ceilings.The lower level houses the 6 bedrooms, vast kitchen, indoor pool, cinema room, the East facing breakfast room and wine cellar. Additional amenities include a sauna and steam shower as well as a whole facility generator as back up. Walnut wood floors throughout the house add a richness and warmth to the home. There is an abundance of storage. Reinforcing the architectural qualities, Kiley surrounded the house with manicured, symmetrical lawns, flagstones and Linden trees. the lawns surrounding the upper level is the roof to the lower level, and is designed to store water for the lawn in a network of egg cup like reserviors under the lawn. From the beakfast room facing the morning light, the large reflecting pool enhances the serenity of the new day. The Fall foliage is a spectacular display of color with the mountains in the distance turn pink and orange,. The Hudson River School Painters chose this area for a reason.
