The Manor Home fills every expectation of country living with over 13,750 square feet of multi-generational living space on 3 levels. Spacious formal rooms include a Grand Hall, Living Room, banquet sized Dining Room and a wood paneled Library. The latter 3 rooms have wood burning fireplaces with Marble surrounds. Graced by 11-12 foot ceilings throughout the home, the Living Room with fireplace boasts a soaring 15-foot ceiling and has triple exposure windows. Butternut wood, indigenous to the estate, was milled for the custom Library and it is estimated that it took over 7,000 man-hours to handcraft the carved moldings, cornices and cabinets.
On the ground floor one wing features 2 bedrooms, full bath and a half bath, and a living room. the other wing features a heated 3-car garage and a bedroom and full bath.
The current owner replaced the roof in 2004 with custom-made Ludowici ceramic tiles that look like cedar shakes and have a life expectancy of 75 years. All of the electrical, heating and air conditioning systems were replaced with state of the art commercial equipment. Most of the windows with exception of the magnificent leaded glass windows were replaced with custom thermo-pane Kolbe & Kolbe divided light windows to match the time period of construction. Old world craftsmen restored the wide plank floors, original mahogany doors, hand carved moldings, wood paneling and the original leaded glass windows.
A discerning owner will agree this special home represents country living at its very best. Miles of white 4-panel wooden fences enclose the field and paddocks. The Stable features 58 stalls, a large hay loft and 2 staff apartments. The Stable could be easily converted into a Classic Car Garage for 60+ automobiles. There is an in-ground pool and a free standing pool house/changing area. In the partial walk-out basement there is a walk-in freezer/meat locker, walk-in vault/wine cellar and a monitored electronic security system. Rental cottages and apartments provide a positive cash flow covering taxes and maintenance.
