What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Small, sustainable living nestled in a mature garden (garden with a house on it).

The main floor is designed for relaxing and garden viewing.

The lower floor contains living room (electronics), home office area, closets and full bath.

The bedroom loft was designed for meditation and to feel closer to the outside elements.

The garden canopy creates a feel of total privacy while creating an almost park like feel for your surrounding community.

The detached art studio is a place of quiet and creativity.

The metal and stone throughout the property is very grounding.

The neighbors are priceless and the neighborhood is quite with beautiful views of the Catskill mountains.

You can walk into quaint downtown Suffern, NY.

You are two blocks from catching a train directly into Penn Station NYC. An hour from most Hudson Valley destinations. Hours from Jeresy Shores.

Our intention was to create an oasis. When you are there you forget about everything else. Warm and nurturing. Hard to describe.


Neighborhood Description

The neighborhood is called the West Ward of Suffern. The neighbors are diverse: working class, ethnic, gay, artists... It is a short walk into downtown Suffern. Two block walk to train station that reaches all of North Bergen County, Lower Manhattan and Penn Station.

A place where everyone minds their business but looks out for each other. The thing we will miss the most.
