Four Barns Farm, formerly owned by the late composer Marvin Hamlisch, is a completely transformed compound designed around 40 acres of pastoral land creating the ultimate weekend retreat. You begin this unique journey through a beautiful linden tree-linden drive to arrive at the vintage restored farm house overlooking the four ca. 1850’s expertly renovated, re-purposed barns. The main house features a contemporary layout with a large open country kitchen with a beautiful grand stone fireplace in the dining area. Cozy up in the library or formal living room, both of which offer lovely fireplaces. The organic vegetable garden and fruit trees are located just off of the main house to provide farm to table cuisine at the end of each day. Beyond the vegetable garden you will find a 20 X 40 gunite pool to enjoy summer sunsets with a glass of rose. The renowned architect Paul Gleicher re-purposed each of the four 19th century agricultural barns. Individually, these barns are designed to incorporate entertainment, office spaces, a cinema room, artist/yoga studio, and guest bedrooms. Exposed beams, wide board floors, and oak paneling offer the true aura of the original barns while keeping the separately defined spaces tied together. The party barn featuring soaring 40′ ceilings is an extraordinary entertaining venue. The main room is anchored by an immense floor-to-ceiling wood burning stone fireplace. The placement of these unique buildings creates an amazing courtyard. You are provided endless opportunities at Four Barns Farm, with 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, and 5 fireplaces. The farm estate is privately situated and surround by other large estates and protected land. It is in close proximity to the local wineries, Mashomack Polo Club, golf courses, and Tamarack Preserve. This property is offered in an area of the county famously known for its scenic beauty and its outdoor sporting events and lifestyle, from the competitive level equestrian culture, to racing car
