New York’s Silo Ridge is the Ultimate Work from Home

When New York closed its offices and forced everyone to work from home, flocks of city dwellers suddenly rethought their living quarters. Those with homes outside the city immediately took to them, and those without were suddenly reconsidering their living arrangements.

Located just 90 miles north of the city, Silo Ridge features 245 homes over 800 acres—as well as a host of amenities including an 18-hole golf course, horseback riding, hiking, and river rafting. The project is located just outside Millbrook and Amenia and has been developed by our Visionary of the Year Mike Meldman’s Discovery Land Company. Pictured here, is a four-bedroom home on .3 acres with views of the 18th green and fairway. Completed in 2019, it’s priced at $6M.

The home is full of private, light-filled spaces overlooking the golf course.

The home has vast outdoor space.

Notable Features

  •  More than 100 members were on property throughout March, April, and May. To keep members—and their children—entertained, Silo Ridge offered virtual bingo, a photographer to take photos of residents on their porches, plenty of provisions, member contests including “chopped challenges” and a tie-dye challenge, Zoom workouts with experts, a cookie bake-off, and more. 
  • When it comes to work, high-speed internet is available throughout the property, and as members are considering staying at Silo Ridge full time this fall, Silo Ridge will offer private conference spaces, which can be used for conference calls, Zoom meetings, or even tutoring sessions for the younger members.

Interiors were designed by Rona Chowenhill.

The home features contemporary fixtures.

The home’s two stories provide ample space for work and homework from home.
