Constructed in 1913, this magnificent country retreat was formerly the President’s house for Bennett College. It has been wonderfully renovated while maintaining its original grandeur and elegance. It is surrounded by the 60 acre golf course and the to-be-built 30 +/- acre Bennett Park. With this park, the property will have expansive views in every direction. Bennett Park is expected to include beautifully landscaped areas and walking and biking trails. The home features 7 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, 7 wood burning fireplaces, original crown and base moldings, raised paneling, original leaded glass windows, pocket doors and hardwood floors throughout, details not found in newer construction and not easily replicated. With several substantial living and entertaining spaces, it is ideal for large family gatherings and the frequent hosting of guests. A dramatic 14 foot formal entryway with a sweeping staircase is most inviting. The formal dining room has raised paneling and a classic wood burning fireplace, perfect for special occasions. The 20 foot living room opens to the awe-inspiring porch. A fully renovated, gourmet kitchen has another fireplace, a large dining area, two ovens and a butler’s pantry. A 22 foot principal suite on the first floor is delightful with its own fireplace, walk-in-closet and marble bathroom with steam shower, or yet another master suite can be found on the 3rd floor. The basement is semi-finished with an indoor jacuzzi. With plenty of gorgeous bedrooms and living spaces on all three floors, this splendid home offers many possibilities. Updates that bring this impressive gem into today’s living include the comfort of new Andersen windows, long lasting hardboard siding, radiant first floor heating and a newly constructed in-ground swimming pool. This is a fantastic location, just 90 miles north of NYC, near local public and private schools and a quick drive to Connecticut boarding schools.
