This 32-acre farm provides one of the loveliest vistas along the Route 35 corridor in Lewisboro, NY. A working professional equestrian facility with open meadows and a picturesque pond, it’s a classic gentleman’s estate located next to the peaceful woods of Pound Ridge Reservation and in the heart of the hamlet of South Salem.
The horse compound includes more than 25 stalls, four large pastures, an eight-acre riding field, all-weather paddocks and grooms’ apartments with private bedrooms and kitchens.
Custom built in 1981, “the house has a warm, comfortable country feeling,” said Ghylaine Manning, real estate agent with Vincent & Whittemore Real Estate. French doors in the sunroom lead to a bluestone terrace and gunite pool. The country kitchen has a breakfast nook with another stone fireplace. In the dining room, a hand-painted fox hunting scene and a chandelier made of antlers add a rustic touch. Upstairs, the master bedroom features another fireplace and an en suite bath. Slate floors, pine plank ceilings and fieldstone fireplaces are a few of the natural elements that give this country retreat a relaxed yet elegant aesthetic.
