Old Stone Retreat is designed for a young couple’s weekend retreat and it sits on a magnificent Hudson Valley 6.6 acre mountaintop site. As a phase one of the master plans, existing two and a half story, 2,000 sqft house was stripped down to its three masonry walls and foundation, then reduced to a 1,000 sqft single story structure with 300 sqft addition and basement.
