Artist's Description

This beautiful carriage house is on the Kykuit estate. Kykuit is a preeminent Hudson Valley landmark. Kykuit is the Rockefeller estate and is located at 381 North Broadway, SLEEPY HOLLOW, NY. This hilltop paradise was home to four generations of the Rockefeller family, beginning with the philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil. His business acumen made him, in his day, the richest man in America.

You can tour the main rooms of the six-story stone house. Then you will move on through the expansive, terraced gardens containing Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller’s exceptional collection of 20th-century sculpture. Artists represented include Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, Alexander Calder, Louise Nevelson, and David Smith, among many others. The underground art galleries with Governor Rockefeller’s collection of Picasso tapestries, and the cavernous Coach Barn, with its collections of classic automobiles and horse-drawn carriages, are also part of the experience.

Kykuit, a historic site of the National Trust, is operated & maintained by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund as a center for its philanthropic programs. Historic Hudson Valley operates the visitation program.

I just loved this building with its grey stone, the red ivy growing up the side and the forest green door.
