Just off the east bank of the Hudson River, a 4-minute walk to the hamlet of New Hamburg and its MTA station, lies this idyllic private island, a stunning retreat from the hassle of city life. Walking through a wrought iron gate across your private steel footbridge you enter a separate world enveloped by the awe inspiring natural beauty and Zen-like tranquility of the island. Dramatic rock gardens covered with a lush carpet of moss feature towering shade trees, exotic Japanese maples and an underplanting of hostas and ferns, create an unforgettable setting just 90 minutes from NYC. The custom built home showcases river views from every room and features a great room with huge picture windows and a library, both with stone fireplaces, a tucked away sitting room-guest suite and a spacious octagonal chef s kitchen with center island and a teppan yaki grill. An elevated gazebo, accessed by a raised walkway features a full outdoor kitchen and leads to a tri-level wrap around deck with mesmerizing views of the river. The master suite has a spa-quality Jacuzzi bath and a lower guest suite has its own private entrance. A three story observation tower offers sweeping 360 degree vistas up and down the Hudson River. The Pavilion, a separate studio at water s edge has a fireplace and walls of windows for reflective moments. A fully cedar lined closet and a boat house provide loads of storage space. Singular and inviting, Rabbit Island is truly one of a kind.
