Description: We are pleased to present for the first time on the market, 16 Poppinga Lane. If you have ever wanted to own the most panoramic Hudson River waterfront property available, now is your chance! This iconic property situated just North of the Vanderbilt Mansion and minutes away from Metro North, on the exclusive Bolles Island, on the Eastern shore of the Hudson River, has a full 270 degree view of the river and the Catskill Mountain range. The 3.4 acre property was the original fishing ground and encampment site of the Shagaback Indians, who inhabited the sheltered cove in pre-colonial times. The current owners built this fortress like home in the early 1980's and the thoughtful attention to building construction innovation is evident throughout. The house is set 8 feet from the river, and the walk out ground floor has ten foot high ceilings, to protect the main living areas from any storm. With accommodation for two cars, a boat room with workshop, and the main entryway featuring a wine room. Making your way to the main level, one is greeted by an expansive living room and dining room with floor to ceiling windows and Mexican tile solar flooring. The adjoining kitchen has recently been updated with the finest quality appliances, custom cabinetry and granite countertop. Next to the dining room, is the truly “great” 900s.f. great room with 40ft vaulted ceilings, six skylights, sauna and wet bar. Walking out to the large South facing 37’ x 12’ deck, from any one of the three sliding doors, one again has the magnificent views of the Hudson, and great space for outdoor entertaining. The deck also features a retractable staircase leading to the waterfront and the boat dock. The dock itself incorporates a 13’ ramp with a 10’ float, over a deep water channel to accommodate a deep draft vessel. The upper level features two traditional bedrooms and a master suite with master bathroom. The unique features of this home include hurricane shutters to secure the thirty six windows, the use of a geothermal heat exchanger for heating and cooling and a 10.35kW solar array that provides in excess of eighty percent of power needs. An automatic standby generator provides extra power in the event of a power outage. One could live “off the grid” here and with net metering, the power company actually pays you! With a private small harbor, protected by stone walls, the property incorporates an integrated set of boat ramps. One, mentioned earlier, leads into the house through a motorized steel overhead door and can accommodate up to a 43’ cigarette-style boat. The other ramp goes to the sideyard for launching trailered boats and kayaks. The views from this property are simply stunning and unlike anything available on any portion of the Hudson River from New York Harbor to Albany. Every single room has million dollar views. With nearly 600’ of water frontage, close proximity to Amtrak and Metro North and New York City, true privacy and great entertaining space, this house has it all.
8 foot deer fence from each end of property water to water. There is a indoor swimming pool (12'x30') with a 10' deep end, that is located under the floating floor in the great room, which could easily be reopened should one choose to do so.
