Magical is all one can say about this discrete, private and gorgeous mini estate nestled in the center of a small area that has been home to an astounding number of artists over the past hundred years, from Walter Matthau, Arthur Miller and Alexander Calder to Frank McCourt and many others.
Situated on three open and park-like acres, the property consists of a beautifully preserved 1830’s Victorian farmhouse, a separate two-car garage with a second floor; a separate guest house/pool house with a large open entertaining space with a full bath, a full kitchen with double-ovens, stone fireplace and lots of bookshelves. Weiland doors open onto a Victorian porch that overlooks the stunning oversized saltwater pool. Below is another two-car garage with closets for storage. There is also an outdoor shower, an apple orchard, a sweet, scenic barn and a “rose garden” that has rose bushes, irises and enough lilies in the summer to keep your vases full.
The property has been impeccably landscaped by John Pieper and includes wonderful stonework and stunning specimen trees and has been featured in many magazines.
