One of the great American family compounds one hour to New York City. This magical country compound, expertly meshed into the landscape, comprises nearly 50 acres all buffered from the outside world by over 4300-acres of protected land- to create a peaceful and playful refuge with natural beauty at its core. The estate's incredible natural attributes unfold as you take in the property a winding country lane lowers the heart rate on entry; a private lake with sandy beach and island to row out to; rolling hills for horseback riding; mature weeping willows become playhouses and forts; a hidden soccer field; and mature plantings that reveal themselves throughout the seasons. Each detail has been meticulously thought out, yet they unfold with ease. The estate's five structures, stables, and pool are plotted perfectly within the bucolic property, respecting their setting with an understated New England aesthetic, as if they have been there all along. Incredibly, this private country escape for peace and refuge is just 50 miles from Manhattan.
