You Can Buy A ‘Fort’ In The Hudson Valley For $2.9 Million
A home in Dutchess County is for sale that is just like a fort.
New York Upstate writes that a home is for sale in Hyde Park that is very 'fort-like'. This 3.4-acre property sits on the Hudson River overlooking the Catskills. The 3 bedroom and 3 .5 bath home is 3,000 square feet.
The most unique feature? Hurricane shutters on all 36 windows to provide ultimate protection. It also uses geothermal energy, and solar energy, to make up 80% of the home's energy needs. Plus, there is a generator on standby in case of an outage.
This fort of a house also has a harbor protected by stone, and it has two boat ramps. One is used for launching bigger motor boats and the other is good for launching smaller boats, like kayaks and canoes. The house also has a sauna, workshop, wine cellar, and a wet bar.
