Skycliff is an iconic early 20th century Tuxedo Park Estate built by Norvin H. Green. Located on the top of Summit Rd on the western end of Tuxedo Lake with stunning mountain and lake views in an extremely private setting on 8 gated acres. A rare renovated home with 2 guest houses, four car garage and pool.
The main residence is sited perfectly to capture the views and the light all day long throughout the year. There are 8 bedrooms and 4 full and 4 half baths. The 2 guests houses and 4 car garage form a courtyard and have a combined additional 4 bedrooms and 2 full and one half bath and their own laundry.
The flowing floor plan of the main residence starts at the entry hall with doors leading to the terrace, the step down living room has high ceilings, beautiful crown moldings and a large fireplace. The grand scale dining room with fireplace opens on two sides to the large eat-in kitchen with French doors leading out to the terrace and pool and has its own fireplace. Off the kitchen is a great room with wood beam vaulted ceilings, lead glass windows, a grand scale fireplace and a door leading out to the pool.

The two guest houses are sited to form a courtyard that is the perfect space for guest or staff to enjoy the beautiful gardens away from the main house.
The grounds of Skycliff are gated with stone walls and fencing surrounding the 8 acres. The property is protected by a full security system and a generator that powers the entire property including the guest houses.
The most spectacular natural setting includes mature trees, rolling lawns and a large heated swimming pool inspired by the shape of Tuxedo Lake.
