In over 25 years of working in this industry, we have never had the privilege of seeing an estate restored and designed with the imagination and perfection of this exquisite 160-acre 18th century sanctuary. White Bridge Farm will take your breath away at every turn from the original restored iron main gate to magical stonewalls pathways and gardens landscaped to intrigue all your senses plus 3 miles of riding or walking trails. Pause at sitting areas overlooking the stream, the waterfall, the fields with fountains and fire-pits and decorative arbors found throughout the property.
The 1700's main home, with enchanting courtyard, interior and exterior original and authentic details is comprised of three bedrooms, formal living and dining rooms each with wood burning fireplace, the masterful kitchen, office, mudroom and four full baths. The main level master suite with double height ceiling, wood burning fireplace and master bath is stunning. Upstairs you will find two sunlit en-suite bedrooms and an inviting sitting area. The roof is of handcrafted 'dog-ear' copper tiling. All other buildings have copper standing seam roofing. The air is central, and floors are radiant, as in all living structures.
The Barn complex creates a delightful courtyard comprised of two guest suites flanked by two magnificent barns. The 'Bridle Suite', with flagstone flooring on the main level is an intriguing open concept space with original stall walls retained to define the spaces opening to brick patio. Above the light-filled three bedroom 'Hayloft Suite' with restored wood flooring has open dining, three bedrooms and lounging terrace. Each suite has Big Chill appliances, WBFP, radiant flooring and W/D.
The Barns; the 'Horse Barn', has original cobblestone floors and completely restored. The stalls are intact and decorated as living spaces for gathering and bath with shower and copper tub with Lillie Herbeau filter. Upstairs is open space with soaring ceilings to dance, dream and create. The 'Gathering Barn' completely restored with soaring ceilings and all original beams and intact stalls originally for hunting dogs decorated as living spaces and grand open spaces for gathering is truly incredible. Attached is a four bay garage with original barn doors, radiant floors and custom storage.
The pool house with floor to ceiling stone wood burning fireplace and soaring ceiling highlighting architectural trusses is fabulous, as are the kitchen and bath. French doors open to the custom gunite pool with seating area designed to take in the views and surrounded by gracious plantings and gardens with bluestone decking, pergola, hot tub and stone shower. A magical property for a lifetime of memories. Truly a sanctuary to be marveled.
