Acclaimed actor Judd Hirsch plans to sell his Ulster County estate, a six bedroom property, hot tub, and more.
Address: 10 Eve Eden Road, Napanoch
Description: American actor Judd Hirsch is launching his Ulster County property. Hirsch played in the hit series Taxi from the late 1970s to the early 1980s. He has also appeared in several critically acclaimed films, including Independence Day, A Beautiful Mind and, more recently, Uncut Gems.
Hirsch spent over a decade building his property, including the solar park that powers the main house and heats his indoor pool. The results? A breathtaking paradise in the Hudson Valley with six bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and a separate pool house.
Judd Hirsch's home at 10 Eden Eve Rd is over 2,000 feet above sea level and overlooks three separate mountain ranges – the Catskills, the Berkshires, and the Shawangunks. On a clear day, the view extends for 30 miles. Future owners of this alpine paradise will enjoy panoramic views for hours. The adjoining deck offers the perfect vantage point for browsing. This property has sprawling 77 acres of land with plenty of pristine woodland to explore.
As soon as the visitor enters the 5,600 square meter main building, they notice the high-quality materials and the elaborate design. Some of the beams are over 200 years old and most were extracted from historic barns in the Catskill Mountain area. Like many of the rooms, the “great room” uses wide windows for natural light and high cathedral ceilings. Judd Hirsch hired a renowned architect for this project. A sleek layout combines with rustic elements for a really comfortable home.
Did we mention the stone fireplaces? Judd Hirsh harnessed the power of the sun year round and also relied on the warmth of three stunning handcrafted fireplaces. One of the bathrooms has a luxurious steam shower for optimal high winter comfort. Coming home after a brisk hike or snowshoe hike has never felt better. There is a lot of space here; Judd Hirsch's fulfilled vision includes a caretaker's house with two bedrooms, a guest house with one bedroom, apartments above the multi-car garages and two tool sheds.
Next, the fully equipped kitchen underlines the “Cottage Core” aesthetic and modern feel. Guests dine in front of a multi-million dollar view of the surrounding mountain ranges. Find stone, reclaimed wood beams, and unique tile accents in the unique kitchen.
Many elements of the Hirsch property are more reminiscent of a mountain bath than a private house. Simple, classic luxury such as a walk-in shower or a claw-foot bathtub and a massive window make the difference.
Fitness enthusiasts and active homeowners get their money's worth. This separate space has a state-of-the-art gym, performance studio, meditation / yoga studio and tennis area. Skip preparing meals and take advantage of the pool house kitchen, perfect for quick post-workout meals. As mentioned above, 20 geothermal wells and a nearby solar field generate enough energy to hear the indoor, underground pool and the rest of the indoor spaces. Above all, this significantly reduces electricity costs.
Asking price: $ 4,499,000
Selling points: Built over 10 years by legendary actor Judd Hirsch, this incredible Shawangunks property shows off the cutest parts of Hudson Valley life. The large wooden terrace and the pavilion are perfect for summer barbecues and night stargazing. Fish enthusiastic families can also use the spring pond (which is also equipped with an irrigation pump for watering the landscape). A solar park-to-power field and 20 geothermal wells keep life in Napanoch green. Impressive 60 hectares of untouched forests create an extraordinary feeling of privacy and offer access to the tranquility of nature.
Would-be tennis professionals can practice their game in the pool house studio or take a short walk to the hotel's own tennis court. The Ulster County property is in the midst of several world-famous hiking destinations. Bald eagles soar overhead, and the thousands of trees in the leafy grounds provide a spectacle of color in the fall.
