This Somers, New York, house is an architectural tour de force, from the impressive stone exterior to the sumptuous and jawdropping plasterwork inside. No sooner that we shared this stunner on @circahouses than did tens of thousands of old house lovers flock to it. But alas, it went “pending” in the blink of an eye. Fear not, another dream house will come along soon enough!
From the CIRCA listing:
An architectural tour de force framed by a picturesque landscape, Stone House Farm stands apart as one of Westchester’s most treasured estates. The epitome of classical elegance, the c.1849 home displays the irreplaceable artistry of Greek Revival architecture, beginning with the home’s commanding façade crafted of locally quarried granite. Inside, the many original grace notes include windows framed by Corinthian pilasters, statuesque marble fireplaces, and finely carved moldings that are truly dazzling. High ceilings and large windows invite light into three main levels, which also host 10 fireplaces, and a vast attic and full basement not included in the sq. ft. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the beautiful home shares the scenic 25 acres with 5 original outbuildings, including 2 garages, a springhouse, a small stone structure ideal for a playhouse, and a remarkable barn that pre-dates the home. It all adjoins a 115-acre preserve destined to remain undeveloped.
