Details

Home Features

  • A broad circle is at the entrance and lovely circular steps go to the classical front door. Built in 1904, the house was recreated by the noted architects Alan Wanzenberg and Alex Antonelli in 1982 to seamlessly blend the old and new in a superb design in impeccable, subtle taste. In 2005, there were new additions, all new bathrooms and a new kitchen, and in 2012 a fabulous new two-story home office/library was built. The front-to-back center hall rises two stories with french doors to a flagstone terrace, and the graceful stairway leads to a balcony. The step-down living room with a marble fireplace and a beamed ceiling has six pairs of french doors to terraces. The formal dining room has a fireplace and five south-facing windows. A glorious two-story, step-down library has a fireplace, a two-story bay window and french doors to the terrace. The butler’s pantry has classical cabinetry and the main kitchen continues this theme with professional equipment and the recently added south facing family room/solarium with a vaulted glass ceiling is spectacular. There are two beautiful master suites including one on the main floor. Each has a fireplace, a dressing room and french doors outside and a luxurious marble bathroom. There are three additional bedrooms and three lovely bathrooms, plus a wonderful staff wing with a cathedral ceiling, a fireplace, and two ensuite bedrooms. In addition, there is an exercise room, a sauna, a steam shower and a wine cellar, plus garaging for two cars and six additional detached garages. The guest houses are a particular asset, each being done in the same character as the main house and each having a flexible floor plan. The original Conyers Farm private fire department is a wonderful structure with a spectacular three-bedroom cottage with a two story Great Room and a fireplace. The second guest house has four bedrooms and a marvelous screened porch.

Lot Features

  • The so called “ruins” is a fascinating structure, once an enormous cow barn of which only the open air stone portion survives giving the feel of a European walled town, plus there is a charming studio with a fireplace.

Horse Facility Features

  • The 22-stall stable, one of the finest in the area, has a caretaker’s cottage. In summary, this estate is unique in this entire region – 80 acres of the most beautiful high land, with its own private driveway or main access via the 24-hour gated security of Conyers Farm and it is the only property to have all of this in this sought after, private association with world class polo grounds a short walk away on quiet, private lanes.
