In New York City, everything you see is dynamic, even the luxury market. The old industrial areas here are transforming into high-end bohemian neighborhoods such as Tribeca, a vacation destination frequented by VIPs and has many trendy restaurants, boutiques, and luxury apartments. There’re stylish lofts in SoHo, an old commercial place where warehouses are converted into residential studios for artists. Attracting a trendy crowd looking for spacious luxury houses are the neighborhoods of West Village, Greenwich Village, and small Italy, all of which have a little-town atmosphere and comfortable apartments in characteristic brownstone buildings with original fireplaces and big windows. For more classical residential places, it’s good to avoid the neighborhoods that never sleep like East Village and Midtown and focus instead on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side. If you want even more features, privacy, nature, and serenity you might want to look for a staycation or weekend retreat residence outside of the city, and chances are you'll find what you are looking for in the "New Hamptons" or Hudson Valley as locals call in anyways 🙂

I believe that Hudson Valley is the cradle of our civilization or at least the economic/financial part of it just because most of New York City was literally built out of bricks brought from the Hudson Valley. Hudson Valley's history is rich and vibrant and one of the perfect ways to see this history is in architecture. Hudson Valley real estate is highly sought since it has it all just a throw of stone from Manhattan: mountain views, historic estates, wineries, classical music venues, river cruises, outdoor adventure, sparkling streams, theater venues, mossy hiking trails and antiquing. No wonder, New York City residents (for the most part millennials) are basically graduating the City and moving just an hour up the Hudson River to the region that is a true cornucopia of riches. In sync with nature, Hudson Valley's residents spend their free time hiking the Shawangunk as well as Catskills Mountains, boating on the Hudson, creating and enjoying one of the multitudes of cultural activities that occur here daily, working hard, or just relaxing with family friends and sharing a meal culled together from the fruits of local organic farms and artisan food makers. It sounds like a dream, isn't it? But here is where it could get even dreamier: what if there was a hidden secret place in the heart of the Hudson Valley, that could bring all of that to even more unbelievable level. This story is about The Hudson Villa - a unique and dreamy place that can truly let you experience the magic of Hudson Valley.
