This outstanding stone manor was created by the legendary architect H.T. Lindeberg. The driveway sweeps into a walled courtyard and to the beautiful limestone front portico. The front-to-back English sitting hall has lovely plaster moldings, marble fireplace and french doors to the expansive terrace which floods it with light. A broad, barrel vaulted hallway leads to the magnificent living room with an antique carved stone mantel over the fireplace and a chestnut beamed, wood cathedral ceiling. The generous panelled library has a fireplace and a bow window as does the breathtaking dining room. Renovated for a serious cook, the pantry with glass-paned cabinets opens to a sunny kitchen with lovely views of the property. The panelled billiard room with fireplace, bar and brick floor has french doors to the grounds. The master suite with fireplace and three exposures has two dressing rooms and two bath-rooms (one a jacuzzi done in sublime verdigris marble with the signature teak parquet floor). There are six additional bedrooms (four with fireplaces), and the third floor bedrooms have beautiful high, arched ceilings and three exposures – a delightful surprise. Staff accommodation is ample with a ground floor bedroom and bath, a second floor two-bedroom wing and a two-bedroom apartment above the four car garage. This unique property has the finest quality, masterful plasterwork, first growth random width floors, authentic hardware, mellow panelling and large scale leaded glass windows. Includes a separately deeded 2.86 acre lot.
