Soho House is considering its first rural American development with a farmhouse in the sleepy upstate New York town of Rhinebeck.

The new development will be modeled on the Soho Farmhouse, which is spread across 100 acres of Oxfordshire countryside, and neighbors the quaint Cotswolds villages of Chipping Norton and Great Tew.  

Since its opening in 2015, the plush retreat has counted the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Clooney's among its celebrity clientele.  

The club comprises 40 cabins, a seven-bedroom farmhouse and a four-bedroom cottage. Guests can use bicycles to travel between the dining venues, a 55-seat art deco-style cinema and a boating lake.  

Rhinebeck, a town with a population of just 8,000 in the Hudson Valley, is already to home to some celebrities, including Paul Rudd who co-owns a sweet shop there called 'Samuel's' with Walking Dead actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
