Description

www.Lambertct.com Majestic trees still command the long driveway and extraordinary English style landscaping of this one hundred year old estate. The current owners fell in love with the home’s architecture, ambience and the history of what was once an equestrian country retreat for an old prominent New York family. Nestled amongst the gardens and stonewalls is an in-ground heated pool and spa with a sight line down to the old meadow. Memories of her past beckon within the stalls of the original stone barn and the sounds from the fountain in secret sunken garden. Within her walls she has been privy to countless bedtime stories, witnessed elegant soirees and weddings, resonated with dinnertime laughter, hosted Easter egg hunts and Christmas mornings and has been adorned with the fine arts and music. She is a gem, greatly loved through the years by the families that have enjoyed her warmth and grandeur. She remains one of New Canaan’s signature and remarkable homes that has been gracefully updated with elegance, sophistication and the finest amenities.
