One of the most prominent estates in the region, this 40,000-square-foot modern residence was designed by world-renowned architect Rafael Viñoly. Situated on 70 picturesque acres, the distinctive main house is built around an impressive Belgium stone courtyard. The residence is aglow with contemporary qualities suitable for display of grand art collections, yet it is also perfect for a more casual and intimate lifestyle. No expense was spared in the design of the exquisite indoor and outdoor materials. Divided into three elegant wings, the interior was created to maximize views of the mesmerizing Belgium block courtyard and the exquisite grounds through floor-to-ceiling windows in all rooms and the interior corridors that face the courtyard. Limestone and oak floors, glazed Venetian plaster, and many forms of stone are among the definitive accents.
Beautifully landscaped, the acreage has an all-embracing ambience of nature’s best qualities, where flora and fauna come together in harmony. Among the lush outdoors, a bank barn has been converted into the 20,000-square-foot Play House with a modern indoor clay tennis court. A great room, an exercise room, changing rooms, and a three-bedroom apartment are further amenities. The verdant grounds also hold an outdoor tennis court and a pavilion, as well as a scenic swimming pool coupled with a pool house. In addition, two charming restored stone farmhouses overlook a serene pond. A six-car indoor parking garage and an eight-car outdoor parking garage complete this extraordinary style of living.
