Welcome to this Meadows Drive Residence in the Town of Pittstown, Rensselaer County, New York.....

Imagine waking up to a sunset that looks like this: 


Note, this was taken the morning of August 24, 2002 and was not touched up or edited.

Some exterior views of the home first, 

The front of the house: The front entrance viewed from the lawn.

Another view of the rear of the house. View of the back of the house from 
the hill behind it.
The back of the house at night. Some of the gardens in the back

Come in the front entrance.....
 

After coming in the  mahogany front door, you face the living room area on your left. Note the 10 windows allowing a panoramic view of the countryside.  The stairs lead to the Upper Level and the Dining Room is on the right (see pictures below)
Another view as you come 
in from the front entrance.

The fireplace is made of imported Chinese slate. You can see the lighted glass curio shelving to the right of the fireplace. 

 

To the right of the front entrance is the expansive dining room with a custom one of a kind ceiling and lighting treatment.
The Den can also be used as a home office. Located just off the kitchen as you start down the curved hallway to the other rooms.

 

This cabinet is designed to hold the audio equipment which plays throughout the home but it can also be used for many other purposes.

This is the right side of the desk area. In the picture to the right you can also see the left side of the desk as well as the built in cabinets located above the workspace.

 

 

One of the more exceptional and unusual features of this home is the hand welded aluminum ladder at the top of the mahogany stairs that gives access to the aluminum platform forming the base of the tower. The aluminum and corian handrail was also made by the same craftsman who made the ladder, the platform, and some lighting fixtures for the house. 

Standing on the platform, looking out the windows gives you a view unlike any other.

 

Looking from the Garage entrance to the Kitchen the view here is past the Dining Room on the left, the front entrance on the left, on into the Living Room.
As you come in from the Garage there are Utility closets on your left - in this picture, the extra large coat closet is opposite this bank of enclosed storage shelves.

 

Across the hallway, on the right (not in the picture) is the Utility Closet for cleaning and storage supplies.

As you come in from the garage, the Family Powder Room is on your immediate left.

 

 

Other features and details of the home:
The formal guest bath is just down the hall .....note the custom designed, hand made, stained glass privacy wall and the Kohler Bellamonte Console sink with Pillows Faucets.

 

 

Just passed the Formal Powder Room, on your way to the Master Suite, is a lovely lighted alcove for displaying your favorite treasures.
This is the expansive laundry room - note the large hamper and window to the Sun Room.
An aerial view of the dramatic kitchen area showing the black flyover with halogen lights, the custom, hand made aluminum light rail over the counter and the unique layout. This is another view of the kitchen - standing where some of the tall pantry cabinets are located.
Opposite the kitchen, above, is the Breakfast Room which has its own deck. You can see the sliding doors that open onto that deck in this picture.

 

 

 

 


Although not built by the Siematic company, this kitchen desk was designed and built to match the rest of the Siematic kitchen.

 

 

The Master Suite, starting with the the Bedroom area
Further down the main hallway, you will come to the Master Suite which comprises a Bedroom, Retreat, and Double Master Bathroom.

This is the view down the hallway from the Master Bedroom.

 

You can see the George Nelson Design lighting. 

 

If you are not ready for sleep, you can relax and  watch tv or the propane powered gas fireplace with a marble surround and raised marble hearth in the Master Retreat. The spiral staircase takes you upstairs to the Master Retreat .

 

You are standing in front of the Jacuzzi  tub looking at the "Hers" side of the corian countertops and laminated storage units. 

His unit matches and is on the opposite side of the full wall mirror.
