3 Architecture have teamed up British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin to create this innovative new creative residential compound collaboration in New York's Hudson Valley, Sylvan Rock…
Exclusively listed with Corcoran Country Living for $7.7 million Sylvan Rock is a modernist estate nestled in a magnificent 55-acre wooded plot, located just two hours from Manhattan. The compound aims to set new standards for a rural retreat, blending craft, health and wellness, multi-functional "pods" and sustainability with the true luxury of space, privacy, and self-contained living
Visually striking from every angle, Sylvan Rock offers a reimagined modern lifestyle. At the core of the vision is a strong connection to nature, wellness, flexible use spaces and accommodation for extended stay guests." Reached via a winding 2000-foot driveway that makes its way through the contours, historic rock walls and ridges of the landscape, Sylvan Rock rises like the dramatic natural geological rock formation – its namesake.
The roofline mimics the jagged edges of the rock ledge reaching down into the earth, as if the home is born of and launching from the landscape. The resulting design blends our modernist aesthetic with the privacy and context of the rural location to create a unique luxury experience.
The exterior is defined by dramatic floor-to-ceiling glazing and blackened cedar façade with cantilevered owners' suite, set beneath a unique folded panel roof structure. The entrance from the lower level lair within the rock formation arrives into an automotive gallery garage, lounge, executive office suite – and alongside a sommelier's dream bespoke wine cellar, showcasing Aston Martin's signature cross-hatched lattice design. In total, the estate offers 8,430 square feet of accommodation.
Sylvan Rock embodies top hospitality and the agrarian ethos of contemporary Hudson Valley. Three guest "pods" are designed as multi-functional spaces accommodating guests, remote office, home schooling or wellness. The architect designed tree house on property allows unparalleled connection with nature. The wellness pavilion features a spa and treatment rooms that can be serviced by a local spa with arrangements in place. A dedicated agricultural food garden, accessed via a separate service entrance, can supply both the owner and regional farm markets. This integration allows for the luxury of true self-sufficient privacy.
The project is exclusively listed with and marketed by Corcoran Country Living, with a list price of $7.7 million.
