Step Inside the Most Expensive House in Dutchess County History
There's pricey, there's expensive, and then there's WAIT, HOW MUCH??? Welcome to Ledgerock in Hyde Park, NY, the most expensive residential home for sale in Dutchess County history. While no one has stepped up to buy this riverside mansion just yet, whoever can pony up this much cash will be smashing real estate records. Currently a Millbrook home holds the record at just over $18 million, which is mere pocket change compared to the price tag of this sprawling compound.
The Modern Masterpiece
Dubbed a “modern masterpiece” by listing agent Laurel Kerr from Corcoran Country Living, this 15,000-square-foot residence boasts two pools, ten acres, a 5,000-square-foot deck with a hot tub and fire pit, and an eighteen-car garage complete with car wash. It even includes a separate 2,500-square-foot guest house and a staff apartment (rule #1 of owning a $45 million house: you don’t wash your own cars). Another fun fact: this house is no longer legal to build.
The Ledgerock property owes its name to the fact that the mansion sits directly on the Hudson River, offering unbelievable views of the water, mountains, and the sunsets beyond. But as the listing mentions, this type of property is no longer allowed to be built. Updated ordinances state that all newly-constructed riverfront homes on the Hudson must be a minimum of 100 feet from the water’s edge, so this palatial estate is likely the last of its kind.
