This historic home from 1888 sits on the Hudson River in New York. It's owner has 12 grandchildren and this home is a haven for the large family.
Ths property covers 87 acres of Columbia County
There is special arts-and-crafts center for the grandchildren on the second floor. An adjoining playroom features a tiny stage - how I wish we could see it. Imagine having a home large enough to have a craft room!
On the second-floor landing, a floor-to-ceiling bulletin board serves as a changing autobiography of the house. It is overflowing with family art, photos, outlines of original plays, and notes from almost everyone in the clan.
This is the stunning enterance to the property.

It's always nice to see evidence that Kate is as nice as she looks. This is completely irrelevent but fun all the same...On Monday evening, Kate was spotted at her local Topshop store, making some quick purchases just before the store closed. Thrown over her arm as she waited patiently in line was a smart polka-dot skirt in teal, a cobalt-blue boucle jacket with velvet trim and a delicate pair of gold-effect leaf earrings that cost just $10 and change. Kate browsed the store for a half-hour before joining the line to pay for her $170 worth of items.
“She was low-key and casual – she seemed so normal,” the Topshop staffer who served her said. “She was really chilled out despite some customers in the queue behind her saying, ‘Oh my God it’s her’ and pointing – she didn’t seem fazed by it all and she was really sweet.”
Despite the commotion, no one approached Kate, who gave the store no prior warning that she would be coming in.

Our architect has been playing around with our stairwell and got the new drawings to us yesterday - just in time too as the foundations have been started today and apparently when you move a wall a bit it affects the placing of the base - go figure.
Hate to think what kind of drama could have ensued had they already started.
