Sitting alone atop and in the center of a vast clearing surrounded by lush forest with dramatic views of the Catskills in the distance and the lower, rolling hills of the Taconic range surrounding it, the Sleeve House is an uncompromised architectural masterpiece. On nearly 46 acres, the 2,500 square feet house is conceived as two elongated volumes, a smaller one sleeved inside a larger one. There are two distinct interior spaces. The first, between the inner and outer volumes, is the more public space using exposed concrete and charred wood as the primary materials, grander in scale yet comfortable and inviting with radiant heated floors. This space includes a dramatic entry leading down to a living room with a suspended wood burning fireplace, a stepped-up dining room, kitchen, and bathroom. The inner volume is the more private and intimate space with three bedrooms and two baths using softer materials such as carpeting, sheet rocked walls, and personal balconies off each of the two bedrooms at either end of the house. The home, while obviously modern, also pays homage to the old agricultural buildings, barns and silos of the Hudson Valley that typically sit in the middle of the landscape with rough facades weathered from sitting in the elements for a hundred or more years. The house has been built to last for centuries by master craftsmen of the area using sustainable materials like the soft but long lasting Accoya wood, triple-paned glass and a heat and energy recovery ventilation system that keeps the house cool in the summers and cozy in winters. A solar collection system tucked away from the house, with a battery back-up, satisfies the entire electrical needs of the house with all state-of-the-art mechanical systems. The Sleeve House is being offered turn-key with high quality new and mid-c. antique furnishings thoughtfully curated to fit the architecture. Secluded yet conveniently located 20 minutes from both Hudson and Millerton, and two hours from New York City.
