The Details

Living options range from spacious condos and townhouses in the $2 million to $3.5 million price category to a variety of single-family homes in five distinct neighborhoods where prices will start at about $3.5 million and go up to $10 million or more. Plans call for just 245 homes of all types, leaving hundreds of undeveloped acres for woods and wildlife.

 

As your car winds its way down the valley in Amenia, you catch glimpses of verdant pastures, regal trees, and twin red silos that hearken to the area’s agrarian history. You’re greeted by smiling staff at a gatehouse, and that feeling of warmth continues throughout Discovery Land Company’s Silo Ridge Field Club.

The membership package at Silo Ridge, reserved for property owners only, is world-class. Myriad choices abound for homeowners lucky enough to choose among a proposed total of 245 homes — from multi-level condos and townhouses to five-bedroom, single-family estate homesites abutting a state preserve.

Membership entitles owners (like Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen) and their families full use of an exhaustive list of amenities. There’s an onsite pool with a 150-foot water slide; a natural “swimming hole”; a fitness center; and pickleball, tennis, and basketball courts. Silo Ridge even has its own field of dreams: a path through the cornfield leads to a baseball/softball diamond.

The Tom Fazio-designed golf course offers championship play on an unsurpassed beautiful landscape. Non-golfers can ride bicycles along the winding cart paths to two comfort stations, with fare ranging from fresh made burrata and meats from the smoker to frozen margaritas and ice cream sundaes — plus nearly every conceivable kind of candy.

Silo Ridge is especially appealing to NYC residents looking for a second (or third) home. The drive from Manhattan is about 90 minutes, making weekend trips easier than to the Hamptons. If you prefer to take the train, Metro-North’s Wassaic station abuts the property. Silo Ridge staff can pick you up at the station and transport you directly to your home, where a fully stocked refrigerator awaits in your chef-worthy kitchen. Members are welcome at the 2-acre garden and greenhouse to pick fruits or vegetables in-season, or grab some honey made in the onsite beehives.

If members don’t feel like fixing a meal themselves, there’s five-star terrain-to-table dining at the Ridge House restaurant, where leather-aproned servers indulge every culinary whim under the direction of Executive Chef Robert Hohmann.

The Outdoor Pursuits team hosts trail hikes, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, shooting at nearby Tamarack Preserve, and other fun. Members currently anticipate the opening of the Family Activity Barn, which will offer another restaurant, bowling alley, movie theatre, and game room.

All of this adds up to year-round fun at Silo Ridge — where being a member means you never have to leave.
