The experience begins with a quiet country road entrance, unassuming and secluded. The driveway takes us on a scenic drive to the residence and guest pods beyond. Designed as a progression, the driveway winds past mature trees and impressive rock outcroppings.
The namesake rock ledge upon which the residence is sited reveals itself upon approach to the residence, the architectural form of the residence responding to the dramatic lines of the rock. As you move around the residence, the form appears to fold down into the landscape – as if the architecture is born of and catapults from the natural landscape. A distinctly modern yet natural form, the residence is clad in blackened cedar and curtain walls of glazing.
THE LUXURY OF PRIVACY
As the residence comes into, the first glimpse offers a visual gasp with the distinctly modern architecture in counterpoint to the unspoiled natural beauty.
Upon entering the dramatic garage carved from the earth, experience a subterranean lair and custom designed wine cellar.
After the journey, retreat to private quarters in the residence or beyond in the guest pods. Join other guests for dining and lively conversation at the communal table, enjoying fresh produce from the on-property Food Garden.
Interiors designed by Aston Martin — wood, leather and metals integrate into the architecture and furnishings for a seamless and luxurious experience.
BLENDING MODERN AND NATURE
To be constructed with innovative materials including mass timber beams, cross laminated roof panels and energy efficient glazing. The residence is designed for maximum integration with the natural environment providing one of a kind views into the private park-like wooded property and views of the Catskills Mountains.
