Under the careful and exacting eye of the same owner for the past 35 years, "Springwood", an extraordinary estate designed by Mellor, Meigs and Howe in 1915 is now offered to the market. Comprised of three parcels, totaling five and a half acres, the French Norman stone, brick and dash home is set off a long winding drive, positioned to enjoy its rolling southern lawns, croquet court, woods, stream, stone terraces and moon garden. "The covered terrace is situated at a short distance from the house in order to not darken any of the rooms, and provided with ornamental wrought-iron grilles to the north and brick openings to the east, in order to attract any Summer breeze, while the connection between it and the house takes one past the reflecting pool and under the sleeping porch." Elegant formal rooms graced by original lead -paned windows, limestone surround fireplaces and wide planked floors connect by hallways detailed with hand hewed beams and original artisan crafted plaster walls. A greenhouse adds natural beauty and romance as it joins the gracious Dining Room to the "Club Room, " featuring a dramatic barrel ceiling and oversized fireplace. Unspoiled by fleeting design trends the home itself has been specifically maintained with some rooms, such as a projection room, paneled in Cuban mahogany, repurposed to meet the desires of the current marketplace. Four large bedrooms can be found on the second level, including a Master suite with large bath, sitting room, reach-in as well as generous walk-in closets and the original step-down sleeping porch. The third level offers an additional three rooms and large shared hall bath. There is no home as simultaneously impressive as it is welcoming and inviting.
