Our house is located on secluded wooded lot, set back from the road just north of Newburgh & across the river from Beacon. Situated in Dogwood Hills, the house was built in 1969 and retains many of the original features nestled amongst a handful of private residences on the former Delano family estate. The property is shared with our basement apartment and we ask that guests are respectful of that in term of noise. Due to the design & layout the house is not suitable for young children or babies
The house was designed and built in 1969; mid century modern architecture with Japanese influences. We have kept the house in that style but with some modern twists. The surrounding garden is rugged and we like that the house is nestled in it's own private forest. The living spaces are open-plan to one another with a formal (sunken) living room with 3 sofas, turntable and bluetooth speakers and vaulted ceiling; the dining room is two steps up from the living room and has a 6 seater, mid century dining table; the kitchen has a breakfast nook with seating for 4 and all modern appliances; the den is located to the rear and has a working wood burning fireplace and vaulted ceiling.
Guest will have full use of the entire main level of the house and garden - this includes 2 sitting rooms, dining room, kitchen, 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom (with 2 single beds) and 2.5 bathrooms. Guests also have parking for up to 2 cars in the driveway (driveway is shared with the basement unit which has it's own entrance and is not included in the rental).
Interaction with guests
We can be available to meet guest for check in and check out as well as on call 24/7 for any questions guests may have during their stay - we have a separate unit in the basement of the main house which we normally occupy.
Other things to note
The house has high speed wifi access (Verizon FIOS) throughout
This is our home and we prefer guests who treat our home with the same respect - this is a perfect getaway from the city, vacation spot or long stay for people working in the area for a while. We do not allow events to the held at the house and ask that guests respect that.
We ask that guest remove outdoor shoes when in the house and we are happy to accommodate pets if agreed in advance of booking and we require an additional cleaning fee for the booking.
