La Petite Maison of Millbrook, tucked away in seclusion invisible from the road, is a Georgian Stone Manor that transports you to European elegance, style and comfort often found along the shores of Lake Como in Italy’s Lombardy region. Built in 1942, the house exhibits original details of perfection. A Seven Set of mahogany french doors opens the living room to a pergola-covered wraparound bluestone terrace on the south and west side of the house, connecting to the beautifully landscaped grounds. Bathed in natural light of the windowed wall of doors, the proportions of the well-lit living room with center fireplace contrasts with the intimacy of the connecting smaller library, which has a corner fireplace of its own. The original wide-planked polished pine floor reflects the ambient light through the french doors or the fireplace glow, tossed about on the original plaster ceilings and walls. A modern eat-in kitchen and formal dining-room host with ease both family meals and formal entertaining. The second level includes four bedrooms and two full baths in addition to a Master Suite with french doors opening to the tar-beach roof of the breezeway that connects the house to a two-car garage. The grounds are marked by variation and movement with wooded areas of old growth trees and open areas of lawn rolling down to Altamont Road, and punctuated by a stand of large cypresses sheltering an outdoor lounge. An ever-lively stone-walled brook, running from the east end to the west end of the four-acre property, includes a small white building, traversing the brook, that connects to an underground, barrel-vaulted stone root-cellar, sizeable enough to host dinner parties or perhaps used as a private refuge, completing this extraordinary offering with magical and Old World charm.
