About Tony

We are Tony and Jen and have been coming to and enjoying Hudson valley since 1985, when we first discovered the beauty of this great region of new york. Our Family and friends have a life time of memories from this area. Now we would like to be able to share this with others.

Tony purchased this chateau / country house in 1997

Why Tony chose Taghkanic

after looking at property for over two years with my friends father, I decided that this piece was the right one,

it was off the beaten path, no neighbors

around, just woods and nature, yet only 5 minutes to milk and bread and the taghkanic parkway. so we cleared the land, cut the trees to make room for the homestead. The home was buillt and completed in 2013

What makes this chateau / country house unique

It is the peacefulness of this place, That i love, quiet dirt road hardly traveled, you can sit on the front porch and watch the deer come to feed on the lawn. Its the silence of not having a neigbor in sight where you can sit and enjoy family, friends ,or that great book your reading

And from the inside of the home you have the same experience

as the outside with tall floor to ceiling windows, you feel like your outside when your inside.

Elizaville in Summer

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this spacious and comfortable house and we enjoyed it immensely, being able to see the countryside in a different season. There is a beautiful tree on the property that has a U-shaped

bark and we have now captured its beauty in both the winter and summer. Tony, the owner, is very accommodating and gracious and

his desire to design a house that is made for comfort and enjoyment is evident in the quality of the appliances, the beautifully polished wood floors, fully equipped kitchen for all of our cooking needs, comfortable

mattresses and linens and the light-filled rooms from the expansive windows overlooking the property. We were able to enjoy the outdoor

deck this time and that was an added perk. The living room allows for pleasurable movie entertainment as there is more than enough comfortable furniture to satisfy everyone. We plan on spending another New Year's Eve in this delightful house and hope to see it in every season.

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything my husband and I were looking for. Whether you want to relax on the covered veranda on the front of the house or lounge on the open deck in the back beneath the beautiful canopy of stars; you simply can't go wrong! We were there for our 21st wedding anniversary. We are so "happy" we chose Tony's HAPPY place. We highly recommend this property. And Tony, thank you so very much for everything! You are simply the best!!! We'll be seeing you again☺ Cathy & Ron

Tony was fantastic, easy to deal with and always available. His home was impecably clean and accurately depicted in the photos. Of course we had many choices to choose from but this was the right choice. Private, quiet and flexible if you wanted to relax, grill and enjoy the nature on the beautiful woodsy property or go explore the town or the next towns around. We did both. I would without reservation recommend Tony's family home to anyone because what you see is what you get. (Not like some of the others out there which happened to us last year.) Go for it, head to Tony's place and you won't be disappointed!! Looking forward to going back. Thank you Tony!!

New Year's Eve sojourn with friends

  • 5 of 5

After traveling in weather where falling snow was supposed to turn to rain, we were relieved to arrive at our destination and lo and behold we were welcomed by majestic snow covered trees and greeted at the

door by Tony who was very gracious and already had the blinds on the picture windows open for us to

marvel in awe at nature's winter fashion show. The propane stove fireplace was already set in motion and had a welcoming warmth contrasted to the snowy surroundings. I can't see enough about this incredibly spacious and comfortable house that Tony designed and built himself. Out of all the windows you can

view the the deer and their private retreat in the woods. The house is spacious and the high glossed hardwood floors that are impeccably maintained and exceptionally clean gave the house an airy feeling. The bathrooms were beautifully tiled with stone floors and the beds were extremely comfortable with premium linens and comforters. The kitchen was a delight to prepare our meals in with many granite countertops and we had everything we needed for entertaining ourselves. The living room furniture with leather couches were very comfortable, which had not been the case with other properties we rented. Tony took great pride in designing this house for comfort, scenery, and safety. There are sensors throughout the house that

light the foyers and rooms as soon as you enter the areas and the appliances are top quality. We had a most enjoyable time bringing in the New Year with this amazing house and our thanks to Tony for treating us to a bottle of wine and for the opportunity to spend time in this lovely house which he took great care to make sure that all who entered would not forget their experience there.

Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

We are back from a great week at Tony's house. We rented the house to celebrate my 65th birthday with my wife, our children and their significant others. The house was very comfortable, equipped with everything we needed and the location was perfect. We had coffee on the front porch in the morning and a barbecue dinner on the back deck. Traveling to the beautiful local parks and into Hudson was easy and quick. Tony met us upon arrival, explained all we needed to know and gave us two bottles of wine to begin our stay. Thank you Tony for making my birthday with the family memorable, relaxing and fun. Your house is beautiful!!!!!
