Cloistered at the end of a long drive, this idyllic 7.7-acre estate is anchored by a striking Arts & Crafts shingle-style home that is in perfect harmony with its glorious surroundings.

Masterfully designed by architect Ralph Mackin and constructed with exceptional quality and integrity by builder Daniel Divitto, the residence is rich in historic references with meticulous attention given to every detail.

Offering a wonderful floor plan with a great flow and expansive outdoor spaces, it is perfect for grand-scale entertaining. The home mixes cedar, shingle and fieldstone to stunning effect while offering every modern luxury.

Picturesque and peaceful, the property is equally impressive, encompassing a pond, pool, several outbuildings, handsome stone walls and many private seating areas – all overlooking the 4,300 acres of pristine and serene beauty that comprise the Pound Ridge Reservation.

This spectacular property, with more than 7,100 square feet of sumptuous living space, features all the hallmarks of quintessential Arts & Crafts workmanship. It is built with extensive use of organic materials, including fine woods and stone inside and out, low-slung gabled roofs with wide overhangs and superb interior details like custom millwork, built-in cabinetry and soaring open-beamed ceilings. The signature wide front porch with hand-forged ironwork, a massive two-sided stone fireplace centering the Great Room and a chef’s kitchen accented with beautiful river-stone countertops count among the many special highlights of this unique home. All the main rooms including the expansive main-level master suite lead to surrounding terraces and porches opening the home to its breathtaking naturalistic landscape.

Several well-appointed outbuildings truly make this a one-of-a-kind retreat. A charming guest cottage with a living room, kitchen, bedroom and full bath, as well as an Adirondack-style, one-bedroom apartment over the two-car detached garage, offer comfortable accommodations for guests.

A carriage house – which has been converted into a pool house and home gym with a living room, full bath, wet bar, workshop and screened porch – is steps away from the magnificent heated pool.

A small pond cabin is perched by the water for entertaining, including fishing, canoeing and ice skating. Several masterfully designed barbecue areas and secluded seating spots punctuate this incredible property, which offers the finest in indoor and outdoor living in the heart of Pound Ridge.
