Built 1851
A storied American home that seamlessly blends comfort and grandeur. Breathtaking views of the Hudson River and Catskills beyond. A sanctuary of seclusion, and a retreat where friends and family can gather for life's most important celebrations. Parklike grounds with walking trails and cross-country ski paths. Every modern amenity amidst history and charm. This is Steen Valetje, a meticulously restored estate on 290 acres spanning two beloved Hudson Valley towns, Rhinebeck and Red Hook. Built in 1851 by Laura Astor and Franklin Hughes Delano, Steen Valetje continued for generations in the Delano family. Eleanor Roosevelt is said to have loved the home for its 'coziness' and expansive views, and used the home frequently for entertaining, respite, and play. A full renovation in 2020 reinvigorated Steen Valetje's historic details, and brought every system, from HVAC to Internet, up to the highest modern standards. The home's 16,600 square feet of airy elegance encompass oak and mahogany parquet floors, sixteen fireplaces, original windows, and Minton tiles. Many of the 18-foot ceilings on the first floor are painted with landscapes and portraits in the fresco style. Pocket doors between all first-floor spaces create a freely flowing space that carries the eye from one end of the house to the other through a series of gracefully proportioned rooms. Two beautiful, fully-appointed kitchens include top-of-the-line appliances. The second floor is reached by an exquisitely carved wooden staircase, or an elevator services all three floors. Ten bedrooms, most of them upstairs, include two primary suites with dressing and sitting rooms. The interior design of Steen Valetje is the work of the inimitable Bunny Williams. The house is available with many of those furnishings (excluding art). On the grounds you will find two four-bedroom guest houses, a carriage house with four apartments, a two-bedroom gate house, a tennis court, numerous gardens, an eight stall stable with office, tack room, viewing lounge, and indoor and outdoor riding rings, a pool and fully equipped pool house. Along with half a mile of coveted Hudson River frontage, this property comes with permissions for up to three docks and a mooring. The south parcel allows for further development. Steen Valetje exemplifies the most refined lifestyle with every modern convenience aligned with natural stewardship while honoring its storied past in every detail. 48 hour notice required for accompanied showin
