"Gone With The Wind" meets "The Great Gatsby". This sprawling horse lovers estate will take you back to a bygone era of class and esteem. The main southern colonial style mansion is the centerpiece of this forty five acre equestrian paradise, with nine bedrooms, five full baths and 2 half baths. The spectacular two story grand reception hall has a checkerboard marble floor and breathtaking brass chandelier. For elegant entertaining there is a sun-drenched ball room with wood floor, nine sets of French doors, and a separate bar room with full paneled walls. The elegant banquet room has twelve foot carved coffered ceiling, beautiful wainscoting, fireplace, and wood floor. There is also a family room with paneled walls, wainscoting and fireplace, a home office with coffered ceiling and a generous staff's kitchen with a separate circular breakfast room. The property is state farmland preserved with two large fenced paddocks, one fenced riding arena, and an open jumping area. The classic barn is modeled to match the main house and has seven stalls, a breezeway, an automatic fly misting system, climate controlled tack room, wash stall, both hot and cold running water, a bathroom, and stairs to a huge loft for hay and other storage. Enjoy an afternoon of tennis at the recently resurfaced private fenced tennis court, and then cool off just steps away in the 75 foot in ground concrete pool. The southern style pool house has herringbone tile floor throughout and includes a kitchen, full bathroom, living/dining room, and three sets of French doors leading to a large covered patio to keep you cool as you enjoy this resort-like lifestyle. Take a short walk through a grove of trees and you will come to a second elegant colonial home on the property which is an additional over 3200 square feet, with five bedrooms, three full and one half baths and a finished basement. There is also a separate caretaker's cottage next to the barn with two bedrooms, living room and bathroom. This estate can be part of your family's legacy for generations to come, all within easy commuting distance to NYC and minutes from shore point destinations.
