Watch as a Ballerina Dances Through a Gilded Age Manor in Connecticut

2 Min Read

For John Engel and Melissa Engel, leading one of Brown Harris Stevens' top teams is more than just an accomplishment, it is a family affair. The Engels' daughter, Rose Engel, recently collaborated with her parents by taking part in this beautifully crafted video by Mikey Pozarik for 255 Bushy Ridge Road.

Rose, who studied in France at the Paris Marais Dance School, is currently a junior at the University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music, where she is working toward a BFA in ballet. She also has plans to train with the Cincinnati Ballet this summer.

In the video, which you can watch in full above, Rose showcases her talents as she dances through the classic, Gilded Age home, known as Stoneleigh Manor House. The home, which sits atop a hill and offers sweeping views of Long Island Sound, retains the glory of its past with preserved architectural details, while boasting contemporary upgrades.

High ceilings and large windows are found throughout the home's three floors, imbuing nearly all living spaces with natural light and allowing the sea breeze to flow through each.

Additional highlights include a beautifully appointed chef's kitchen, an expansive back porch for seamless indoor-outdoor living integration, an in-home gym, a wine cellar, and a separate carriage house perfect for accommodating guests or utilizing as a private home office.
