View of Twin Island Lake and Mt. Stissing in background. A permanent panoramic display ("An
October Afternoon at Stissing Mountain") at the Museum of Natural History in New York City.
(The Felix M. Warburg Memorial) pictures the identical view that is seen from the south porch of the house, with white birch trees, two islands, and the mountain beyond. Photos available. The artist stood on this property when he made the sketch.
Land and Location: 608 Lake Road, Pine Plains, NY 12567 (Dutchess County). The house is set back and not visible from the road. Five acres of lawn and forest, from an elevation at the north end, sloping gently to over 200 feet of lake frontage. Lake frontage extends to include two fifteen foot inlets, one of which is ideal for boat launching. Twin Island Lake covers 64 acres. The lake flows into Stissing Lake, hence into the Thompson Wildlife Preserve, the Wappingers Creek System, into the Hudson River. The Stissing Multiple use area includes trails to the 1400 foot elevated top, with impressive views and a preserved fire tower for hiking.
An appealing feature of the house is its delightfully open floor plan. One can stand in the living room and take in the view from all directions: south view through sliding glass doors to the lake, through dining room window looks out to the deck and beautiful pines, through adjacent "music room" western view is more forest, through front door, the beautiful front lawn to the hillock on the far end of the property. Partial views greet the eye from every room. A great place for weekend retreats or year round living.
