There’s a lot to love about this property and one caveat. Might as well get to the negative first, and it’s that the property is on Main Street, behind the Maidstone. However, there is a long gated drive, and plenty of land, so we don’t see how this property is necessarily any less private than a similar place on nearby Mill Hill Lane. Plus, that means one could walk to any number of shops and restaurants as well as the jitney.
There’s a generous 1.7 acres of land designed by Marders with specimen trees. The house has been nicely updated with a new-ish kitchen and a wine cellar and offers some funky original features like the curved brick fireplace wall. There are four bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Of course there’s a gunite pool out back with spa and plenty of patios. The fabulous pool house is climate controlled and features a sauna and a fireplace as well as its own covered patio. Asking price for all this is $5.4M, which we think is pretty fair.
