A Private Estate
Experience 19th-century elegance today! As a former Livingston estate, on the National Register of Historic Landmarks, we have striven to retain the original feel that the property had back in 1856. Located just two hours north of New York City, you will experience an secluded oasis of verdant lawns and grand old oaks, overlooking the Hudson river, with the green peaks of the Catskill mountains across the river serving as the backdrop.
Our venue comprises three distinct areas. There is the Riverside Grounds, a half-mile-long swath of groomed lawn, dotted by century-old white oaks, and anchored by our landmarked mansion, which faces the river. On the hill behind the mansion lies the Barn Complex, fully modernized to host your reception. Between these two is the Carriage House, one of two houses available for rent.
The Barn Complex is designed as a quadrangle, framed by the brick barn to the west, woodland to the east, and a wooden barn, with stone patio, to the north. Bluestone pathways connect the two buildings. On the surrounding lawn, Adirondack chairs are placed for your use. The brick barn houses indoor bathrooms and a prep kitchen, and includes a covered, bi-level indoor/outdoor space. The wooden barn can seat up to 120 without additional tenting and its deck and stone patio can be tented to accommodate as many as 225 guests. The electrical service is totally modern, so multiple amplifiers and coffee makers can work simultaneously! Outlets abound, allowing for versatile layouts. In addition, we can provide a bespoke fire pit for a small bonfire, weather (and the fire marshal) permitting.
