Once a grand horse property, this sprawling estate had fallen into disrepair. The homeowners yearned to recapture the charm of this Gentleman’s Farm. The interior features rich, timeless details such as custom-milled raised panels, mouldings and coffered ceilings. An inviting slate patio was built with two stone fireplaces and a stone-and-slate island. The mechanicals were updated, as was the HVAC. All of the original windows were re-glazed, and based on plans from 1923 uncovered by the homeowners, the original porte cochere was rebuilt, improving the appeal of the front of the home. A welcoming center staircase in the large entry hall completes the transformation.
