A luxe development is heading to the Hudson Valley


Head to the grocery store in Germantown, NY, and you might bump into Chloë Sevigny.

This under-the-radar Hudson Valley hotspot — where the actress has been spotted going down grocery aisles — isn’t as well known as popular Woodstock or Hudson.

That’s exactly what caught the attention of New York City developer Roger Bittenbender, of Soho’s 150 Wooster fame — where a penthouse sold for $32.5 million in 2018 to billionaire private equity investor, and Milwaukee Bucks and Aston Villa co-owner, Wes Edens.

Now Bittenbender, like many New Yorkers who rediscovered the beauty of upstate New York during the pandemic, is building a new development named Fox Hollow on close to 90 acres in historic Germantown.

Think idyllic rolling hills, streams, woodlands and Catskill views — and the wealthy hipsters who love them. The development consists of a dozen new houses on 5 to 15 acres starting at $1.89 million. Call it a “modern country” aesthetic with minimalist design and other styles.

The homes all have names like Loft (industrial) and Rift (Scandinavian) and can come with optional customized add-ons like a heated saltwater pool, a pool house, an outdoor kitchen — and more.

It offers a “downtown goes upstate” vibe for post-pandemic New Yorkers in search of a weekend sanctuary house for apple-picking or fresh air, all within driving distance.
