About 1070 Haverstraw Road

"Balder Brae, a seamless integration of house, décor and garden, to create a sense of order and calm," David Easton, 2005. Balder Brae, c.1910 home with stone walled garden and cottage designed by noted American Horticulturist, Louise Bebe Wilder and her husband, Robert Wilder, architect, with McKim, Meade and White, the leading architectural firm at that time. The Wilders used Balder Brae not only as their summer home, but also as a laboratory for horticulture.

Balder Brae is in an extremely private setting off the road on a 5.9 acre parcel which adjoins thousands of acres of parkland; Harriman State Park and the Mahwah River runs through the western edge of the property. David Easton built an old style stone home in the Anglo-American tradition, adjoining the walled in garden with the original stone garden on the opposite side of the courtyard. Easton's design not only fits in perfectly with the setting and original structure (what else would you expect from David Easton!), but looks and feels like it's been there and has been lived in forever! Easton's structure features his "central room concept" with 30 ft. ceilings, barn beams, rough cut stone walls, exquisite antique style light fixtures, shingled roofs, French doors, clock tower, masonry columns in arbors, original urns and fountains, heated in-ground pool, two lanai porches: sitting area with fireplace and al fresco dining room. He was inspired by properties he had seen in Nantucket, Maine and Mexico with some of his design elements.

Balder Brae is located two properties from an equestrian center with hundreds of miles of riding and hiking trails.
