Whether you are looking for a chic loft apartment or a spacious home for your kids and family near sprawling farmlands, Hudson Valley real estate offers a diverse range of properties. Hudson Valley houses are located in areas that are rich with history as well as new developments, from industrial cities to rural backcountry.

Hudson Valley Architecture

The architectural landscape of the Hudson Valley is characterized by one-of-a-kind properties, like the historic estate of Frederic Church in Hudson, Olana, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s estate and library in Hyde Park. Some Hudson Valley homes are historic, dating back to the region’s settlement in the 17th century, while others have been retrofitted with modern, sustainable, energy-saving renovations.

Hudson Valley Landscaping

Hudson Valley landscapes offer an idyllic backdrop for the region’s homes. The area’s fertile land produces seasonal, flowering trees and bushes, distinctive regional flowers and plants, and wild vegetables, like ramps and garlic. The region’s emphasis on locally grown products and gardening culture includes a wide range of agricultural and gardening organizations that offer tips and tools for building and maintaining a home garden, like the Hudson Valley Seed Library and the Hudson Valley Gardening Association.
