Milan New York Kenya

Rustic Countryside Home | Milan, New York

Looking to escape the city? This rustic Upstate New York retreat is perfect for you. Surround yourself in the Hudson Valley’s majestic natural beauty while enjoying modern amenities and appointments in this home and guest cottage. The rolling expanse of the countryside certainly gives one a sense of space, but the 5,700 square-feet of home living space and 6 bedrooms certainly drives the point home. Enjoy a sense of privacy and tranquility that can only be afforded by countryside living. Keep a watch on this home for fall when the Hudson Valley’s transforming foliage is on full display.

THIRDHOME member Jan says, “Wow. Just wow. This home is newly built and no expense has been spared. ‘Rustic’ is being modest…substitute the word ‘Luxurious’ in the description, and that doesn’t begin to cover it. Stunning architecture. Top-end appliances, linens, furniture…well, top-end everything, really. And the home is perfectly situated on the side of a hill with sweeping and unobstructed views of the mountains. ” click here to read more of Jan’s review


Laikipia Kenya family house

Nanyuki Family House | Laikipia, Kenya

Wild and remote, the Nanyuki Family House rests in the foothills of Mt. Kenya. Offering an oasis from the rugged and dry terrain of the Great Rift Valley, this spacious home features a pool, full-sized billiard room and indoor gym. The best part about this property is having the wilderness of Africa at your doorstep. A short ways from the grounds of the estate you’ll find elephants, giraffes, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hippos and more! Stay at this home for a combined walking safari and luxury home experience under the shadow of Mt. Kenya.

THIRDHOME member Arthur says, “This was our first trip to Africa and there is a lot of planning and preparations required to explore and enjoy the culture and sites of Kenya. Richard and Amelia Leach were incredible with their insights and suggestions and I can’t thank them enough. The Nanyuki House is perfect for families to have a home away from home in Kenya.” click here to read more of Arthur’s review
