Located in the heart of Millbrook Hunt Country, Temple Farm rests quietly on 139 acres of perfectly maintained land, fields grazed by Red Devon cattle, woodlands for hiking, orchards for fruit picking, and then the main building site, a lesson in fine country living. Unseen to a passerby, the house reveals itself after the observer has travelled down the long, tree-lined drive, and forgotten the world behind. Perhaps one of the finest pieces of antebellum architecture Millbrook has to offer, the Greek Revival house was designed by notable builder Nathaniel Lockwood. Once inside the grand entry, a view down the main hallway and beyond the secondary, octagonal gallery reveals just how large the home is. Off the main gallery there is a library with access to a gracious covered porch along the southern elevation, and on the north is the drawing room with fireplace. Off this gallery is the dining room opening to the porch. Off the octagonal gallery there is access to the kitchen, an office, and the living room with fireplace. The chef’s kitchen features top of the line appliances, butler’s pantry, and a balcony and steps leading to the garden. The living room has a wonderfully hidden wet bar, and a screened-in porch facing west for perfect sunsets. Beyond this area, there is a mudroom and a full bath. Upstairs there are two bedrooms with bathroom en suite, and a master suite with double bathrooms and dressing rooms, one with a hidden staircase to the office downstairs. The master is replete with a fireplace. Less than a hundred feet away is the guest house – impressive enough to be the main attraction on any other property. There is a complete and large kitchen, living room and dining room, screened-in sleeping porch, and three bedrooms with bathrooms upstairs. There are multiple outbuildings including several barns and storage houses, an original Greek Revival Spring house, and an impressive greenhouse overlooking the organic garden. There is also a stunning gunite pool
