Story and Photography by Maxwell Alexander, Editor-in-Chief, Hudson Valley Style Magazine
Villa Ashokan is a home that fits in perfectly amongst the Hudson Valley landscape. Perched amongst acres of lush bush, this private property gives off rustic and earthy vibes. The architect must have been inspired by the gorgeous natural surroundings when he created this epic living space with many sophisticated and thoughtful interior features.
From the moment you walk through the front door, (note the quaint country cottage entrance), you will be in love with every room. There is an abundance of natural light highlighting the charming interior details featured throughout the home. It's a cozy hideaway that is warm and inviting, yet fresh and modern.
Make yourself at home soaking in the jacuzzi or capsule-style shower, relaxing in the living room with lovely Cathedral ceilings, or maybe chilling outdoors on the patio. The property with picturesque views catches the colorful sunsets over the Catskill Mountains. There is a natural flow from indoors, out to the upper or lower sun deck, then down the wooden steps leading to the gardens. Invite your friends over for leisurely weekends of hanging out or absorb the solitude with some home alone time which we all need sometimes.
