Property Description

Owned by one family for the last 25 years. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own your own 100% private motorboat lake.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a magnificent compound across 164 majestic acres with one of the largest private lakes in the Hudson Valley at 37 acres. "Camp David" f/k/a 'Auchmoody' was originally conceived in 1930 and has a rich history of both privacy and play, having served as both a nudist colony and a modern lakeside playground. Located on a quiet road in Esopus only 7 minutes from the NYS Thruway, 10 minutes from village of New Paltz, and a short drive from Kingston, Camp David is only 90 minutes up the Hudson River from Manhattan by car. One enters the estate through a long, gated drive and is immediately taken by the curated grounds, mature trees, the immense lake, and an incredible sense of tranquility. The compound includes a stone main residence of approximately 8,500 square feet, offering 2 large primary bedroom suites, 3 large guest bedrooms and impressive common areas - including a formal dining room that can easily accommodate 26 guests. All rooms offer extraordinary views, with most overlooking the lake, the remote-controlled stone waterfall, and the expansive land beyond. From the primary rooms, one enters a deck that stretches out onto the 37-acre lake, affording them everything from watercraft & jet skis to swimming, paddle-boarding, and fishing - all in a pristine, park-like setting. The vintage, stone outbuildings include a 3-bedroom boat house with a fireplace and a large, covered portico with an outdoor fireplace, additional outbuildings include a one-bedroom guest cottage and a one-bedroom cedar cottage, a 2-bedroom caretaker's house, a three-level barn, 8-Car Garage, and a large kennel (petting zoo). This incredible compound is a rare offering and one of the most magnificent properties to ever come to market.
