Property Description

The majestic 7 ½-acre Philip Cheney Mansion Estate is more than a luxury property: it is a story, a moment of splendor frozen in time. It represents a dream carried from the Gilded Age to the spectacle of the 21st century. A National Historic Landmark the Mansion was designed in the Jacobean style by Stanford White; then reconstructed in 1928 by “American Renaissance” designer Charles Adam Platt. This was not a restoration; it was a preservation maintaining every original detail of the estate while painstaking integrating today's modern luxuries. The wall coverings are original Zuber of the Italian countryside. The spectacular ceiling panels once graced a palace in Vienna. The 9 original fireplaces were imported from around the world. Custom mouldings and woodworking were hand-carved from the world’s foremost craftsman. With 13 years of effort from preservation architect Jared Edwards, the Cheney Mansion Estate was returned to its original historic charm. There is no other estate throughout CT as breathtaking as The Philip Cheney Mansion. The location could not be more desirable equally distant to New York City and Boston. Those looking for refuge will find privacy in your own oasis. There is no need to leave your sanctuary. Your workspace depends on your fancy. Negotiate deals from the office, library, logia, or terrace. Own a private escape. Town card shows 13,697 for square footage which does not include the fully finished third floor which adds 4,090 square feet.
