From every angle, Glenmere Mansion pleases the eye. Symmetry was a hallmark of the house's original Carrère and Hastings architects. (The firm was responsible for the iconic New York Public Library.) Glenmere's latest owners have tastefully enhanced what were great bones to begin with.
Archways frame vistas of formal gardens and Hudson River tableaux. Light flows into high-ceilinged rooms from tall windows. Original contemporary art from the co-owners' gallery in Germany decorates the walls.
And the restaurants serve fare that a gourmet colleague pronounced "perfection." It's no wonder this lovely property was accepted into the prestigious Relais & Chateaux group within the first year of its opening.
