Full Baths


Half Bath




Nestled on 10 gently rolling acres, "Holly Court" is the perfect compound, a 1915 clapboard Colonial Revival home with 2 cottages, 2 barns, pool and a 5-car garage. A double height entry Foyer with fluted plaster ceiling medallion portends the character found throughout. With graceful archways, fine molding 6 fireplaces and original brass hardware, the 8-Bedroom, 9.5 Bath home is a rare offering. Built as a farmhouse by E.Q. Trowbridge, a descendant of John Hancock, the home has been expanded over time. In the 1920's, the Living Room was paneled with wood from a NYC townhouse that was being demolished, and ultimately a whole wing was added around this room. The Living Room still retains the 4" wide oak floors, pine paneling and a marble travertine fireplace. In more recent years, the farm Kitchen was featured in Martha Stewart Living. It offers a Traulsen Refrigerator, Viking 6-burner stove with and double oven, 2 Viking Dishwashers, and incomparable ambiance with painted wood floors and original pantries. Charming details include a Library with herringbone floors, a Potting Room with sink, Wet Bar and a large Sun Porch with tiled floor. The Primary Suite has 2 marble Baths, outfitted closets and a home office. Additional Bedrooms all have full Bathrooms. Heating & cooling systems have been replaced, new shutters and partial slate roof, plus new balustrades are significant recent improvements. Gentle breezes will delight guests on the porch overlooking the walled gardens. The bucolic setting is an unparalleled oasis to relax, live and play with cutting gardens, lush lawns, terraces and majestic trees. Masterpiece Listing.
