Once upon a time in a land far, far away is how most fairytales start. Well some fairytales start as “Once upon a time in a land close by”, as close as 30 minutes drive from New York City. This particular land where many fairytales could have been set is known as Clarkstown, and in this town, situated between groves of trees you find a beautiful house, aptly nicknamed “The Magnificent Mountain Home”. Feast your eyes on the spectacle of a photo below:
Situated miles away from the BUSY-ness and business of Manhattan is this oasis of beauty, peace and tranquility. It is a must for any childhood, adulthood or retirement. This is where adventures are found, lived and remembered. This must be the place. It is the place where families and friends alike come together to enjoy the best of life away from the race that many find themselves forcefully being sucked into in big cities. Money Magazine ranked Clarkstown as number 7 on the “Top 50 places to live” in the United States. That in itself is a testament to the beauty of this city.
Although in the midst of the east coast countryside, the architecture of the house is far from traditional, it is a beacon of ultra-private modernist residence that has been fully renovated to high stylistic standards. Once inside the home, you are left to marvel at the elegant and inviting free-flowing home which offers a two-story atrium entry with circular stairs.
Far from the concrete jungle, is this wooded estate setting where beauty and luxury perfectly envelop the astonishingly magical house which is perfectly set on 2.16 acres of land. Nature, luxury and home perfectly coincide to form this residence with over 10,000 square feet of soaring ceilings, skylights and glass windows. Stunningly detailed fireplaces remind of a bygone era, and all four of them are perfectly aligned to the handsome woodwork around the house.
Global Luxury Brand Ambassador Pritan Ambroase who has himself vacationed at this home with his family, stated, “Paradise. That is the perfect description for this home and this city. I could see myself growing old in this home with my family. We were able to satisfy each of our needs and requirements here. The rat race lifestyle of Manhattan is overwhelming, so this home and this city served as the perfect escape. Our week here was filled with everything from rugged outdoor adventures to elegant indoor dinner parties, adrenaline induced sporting days to quiet picnics with board games to boot, etc. The fact that I am able to say that sentence about ONE home is perfect. Manhattan was only 35 minutes away, which meant all my meetings were easily accessible. The trees that surround this home became my meditation spots. My career and lifestyle requires me to constantly travel around, so I am naturally a busy body, but this home grounded me, frankly this is the only place I wanted to be. Adventure, luxury and nature were all on our fingertips waiting for history and memories to be written. Anyone who gets to call this place their home, can count themselves among the lucky few. Thank you for the beautiful memories that we have made at this home.”
Not one to be easily impressed, Ambassador Ambroase has given this home his five star rating. This luxurious home comes equipped with a lighted basketball court, outdoor fireplace, and hot tub that offers delightful relaxation.
The grandly proportioned interior is highlighted by elegant formal areas, sumptuous spaces; impressive state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen; sensational first level master bedroom with en suite bath; add/five bedrooms and four full baths; two powder rooms; extensive walkout lower level with media room, sauna, gym, and recreation room w/custom wet bar; and 5-car heated garage.
The current owner of this magnificent mountain home, Robin Fiddle Posnack, says, “The best thing you can hear from any homeowner selling their property is that, they themselves live in the area. I adore this location. In fact, I raise my kids here. It is the perfect balance of urban proximity and rural living, situated in the suburbs of Rockland County it offers the homeowner close proximity to top golf & tennis country clubs, upscale shopping, hiking and nature trails in your backyard, yet close to airports and just 30 miles from the heart of New York City. New City is the secret oasis and this home offers a panoramic view of nature – floor to ceiling from virtually every room.”
Anyone out there looking for a home in New York should definitely give the magnificent mountain home a visit and a browse. It is currently listed for $2 million. Feel free to contact Robin Fiddle Posnack directly for a viewing or a chat about the area firstname.lastname@example.org or +19176488741.
