PHILOSOPHY

RURAL RESIDENCE.

FOUNDED ON THE PURSUIT OF BEAUTY DERIVED FROM A
REFINED PERCEPTION OF THE SENTIMENT OF NATURE.

Rivers have shaped nations, inspired greatness of mind and spirit, and exalted the senses of countless generations. The HUDSON is such a river. Its wild beauty and cradling valley drew forth unsurpassed visions from the brightest lights of the nineteenth century. On the River's great shoulders the unbound genius of the nascent republic played freely in waves of classicism, romanticism and exoticism, and pollinated the new nation with a never-before-seen hybrid of nature, cultivated beauty and democratic ideals.

In REMEMBRANCE of those earlier exaltations which still adorn the landscape, in CELEBRATION of those now returning to the Hudson's ennobling embrace, and in TRUST for those poised on the long horizon: RURAL RESIDENCE re-imagines their discernment and gathers to itself beauty in all its forms.
