Roseview - Millbrook, NY
Based upon a Palladian parti, and the Owners’ preferred style, this 1968 generic builder home was drastically transformed into c.1890 neoclassical country estate in the Hudson Valley. The concept of the Palladian parti was emphasized by the Pavilion, and the carriage house flanking the main house, creating a much-desired visual balance. The Pavilion at one end of the parti became the ideal “extended entertaining” area for the formal Living room, integrating the exterior with the interior.
The Tack room served the dual purposes of function and form, providing the appropriate visual linkage to the carriage house and became the perfect facility to accommodate the Owners’ favorite hobby, riding, and their equipment. With the intended parti well executed, a strong interior building composition, and its idyllic hilltop setting and stunning vistas, this country estate became a retreat to be much desired.
