A modern, private cabin secluded within a private 19 acres, just 90 miles away from New York City ! This stunning home was designed by Sundial Studios Architecture & Design, and was featured both within Dwell Magazine (google: wabi sabi weekend cabin) and the NY Times (google: haiku of a home). This 3 bedroom 2 bath cabin was developed in response to the beautiful landscape it is placed within and is surrounded by forest and wildlife, overlooking a pond.
