    What a special place. I’d be so happy with “only“ the caretaker’s house and the woods.

    So luxurious and wonderful. And that lake! I could dive right in.

  5. The interior decor isn’t quite what I expected from the exterior – much more 50’s luxe than I would have thought, but I guess that’s circa 1940 for ya. The bathrooms are, uh, um, something – they might be better to see in person – the color seems a bit tinted in the pictures.

    BTW is this too far east for Old Fashioned’s at the bar?

    Fantastic! The mix of styles and decor bothers me not one bit.

    Lewis Novoting (1891-1985, born Ludwig at Vienna, Austria), known locally as The Commodore, was co-owner of the company that manufactured the Globe meat slicer, used in delis for almost a century. He bought a 900 acre tract here, built his home, expanded the lake and developed the community.

    Wow, quite the house! I *love* the bright teal & soft lime bathroom! And the softly stained diamond paned glass on either side of the doorway in the pic looking into an office/study. (<— looks like they could be bifold doors??) And the bar is sooo cool! The surrounding scenery is gorgeous. Looking at a map, it looks closer to Beacon than to Cold Spring, but what do I know?🤷🏼‍♀️

    Wow, quite the house! I *love* the bright teal & soft lime bathroom! And the softly stained diamond paned glass on either side of the doorway in the pic looking into an office/study. (<— could they by any chance be the edges of pocket doors??) And… the mural. The surrounding scenery is gorgeous. Looking at a map, it looks closer to Beacon than to Cold Spring, but what do I know?🤷🏼‍♀️

    Can you believe that kitchen?? It hasn’t been HGTV’d—thank the heavens! The first bathroom shown is a bit over the top, but overall, if I had the $$ I’d love it!

    Yep, I could call that home very quickly…if I had $3M to spare. I’d love a virtual tour. The blue and green bathroom is fun. It even has a standing scale on the other side of the glass wall.

    What a great house and aside from some repairs I would keep it as is. It looks like there are two solariums. One is off the living room (pic 13) and above the garage (pic 10?) and the other like everyone else pointer out off the room with the twin beds. The baths may not appeal to everyone today, but are great specimens of their time and should be saved.

    BTW,

    Here are a couple of interesting articles…

    1. A nice Brownstoner article about the house and community. https://www.brownstoner.com/upstate/lake-valhalla-cold-spring-new-york-upstate-homes-for-sale-22-valkyria-ludwig-novoting-mid-century/

    2. There’s a connection between the community and the The Armour-Stiner (Octagon) House
    Irvington-On-Hudson http://www.josephpelllombardi.com/pdfs/167-172AlfheimLodge.pdf

    3. It looks like Scenic Hudson owns the home and after some legal wrestling much of the undeveloped land will be preserved. https://highlandscurrent.org/2017/02/03/scenic-hudson-deal-falls-apart/
