In 1907 Jay and Dita Phipps and children moved into this gracious Charles II style mansion. The home was designed by London based architect George Abraham Crawley in 1904. The home is filled with art, and antiques that span more than 3 generations of collecting. This is a special home to visit. The gardens have grand lawns and vistas. A secret thatched countryside cottage still delights adults and children a 100 years later. A royal geometric rose garden and timber allee arbor way with roses and clematis is enchanting. A formal walled garden with colorful annuals, a Koi pond and fountains is a feast for the eyes. Woodlands with grand ancient trees with pathways leading to a lake or a swimming pool adds adventure to this garden. Wonderful Sphinx statues guard the back terrace while puti statues play on the roof line of the dining room annex. 200 acres of gardens and grounds to visit.
