Bright Bank. Rare and magical. Experience living a luxurious country lifestyle in the quaint historic Hudson Valley village of Saugerties only 100 miles from New York City, on a property rich with history, extraordinary views of the Hudson River, surrounded by an abundance of serene acreage. Nestled between the Catskill Mountains as the western backdrop and the Hudson River on the eastern side, this property, once part of the 1,000 acre Henry Barclay farm, includes a gracious 13,892 square foot mansion built by Joseph B. Sheffield in 1855, owner of the once hugely successful J. B. Sheffield & Son Company, producer of fine paper. The sprawling property also has restored farm buildings, an artist studio, and caretaker cottage on 137 riverfront acres. Enjoy your own private bay and rights to restore a deep-water dock for mooring. Sited high on a bluff overlooking the river, the brick mansion is partially restored and awaiting your personal touch to transform this blank pallet into your forever home. Many original architectural details are intact and modern infrastructure is in place in both the mansion and grounds. The stage is set for completion. Further details furnished upon request.
