The Hudson Valley’s natural beauty and Dutch heritage, inspired the investors of Charter Capital, a Dutch-American partnership, to conceive and develop the Waterlands project – an entire community of high quality new homes constructed in the authentic Dutch style and located in the heart of the Hudson Valley in Dutchess County, New York.
The design of the Waterlands homes replicates is the architecture found in a small town in the vicinity of Amsterdam, called “Broek in Waterland”. The homes in this traditional village date back as far as the early 1600’s and have been meticulously restored and preserved.
Originally constructed in “Waterland” (i.e. Wetlands), these homes comprise a real working community which offers a high quality of life that is unparalleled even by Dutch standards. The continuity of design and museum-like quality of preservation have seen in “Broek in Waterland” have made this Dutch community a European landmark and tourist attraction.
The Waterlands project now being constructed in America will ultimately consist of twenty four custom designed luxury homes constructed largely out of authentic materials imported from the Netherlands. From the roof tiles to the floor tiles in the basement and exterior doors every significant architectural detail is of Dutch origin.
The principals in the Waterlands project were delighted to discover that Fine Paints of Europe was prepared to meet all coatings required for the project - from housepaint to interior enamel and floor varnish. Each of the twenty four homes will become a model home for Fine Paints of Europe as every gallon of paint used in the complex will be the finest coatings the Netherlands has to offer, Fine Paints of Europe. All Fine Paints of Europe for the project are being tinted and sold to Charter Capital by Sun Wallpaper & Paint with headquarters in Poughkeepsie, New York.
