Once and a lifetime chance to own a piece of Neverland! Completely renovated and meticulously restored former estate of Broadway legend, Mary Martin, best known for her performance in Peter Pan could be yours. This "wow" house was originally built in 1790 by Epenetus Kellogg then brought today's high standards by recent home owner Helen Barr of Barr and Barr Bags. Amazing views of 2.3 acres of rolling lawns, stacked Connecticut field stone walls, mature trees, and parterre garden from every well appointed room. Exceptional entertaining space and open floor plan to host parties just like Mary Martin did for many Broadway greats! Double set of french doors lead to flagstone patio with sweeping wisteria. Vintage lights from London surround exterior doorways. Interior features encompass a open and bright kitchen with gas range, wine storage and high end appliances, beautiful quartz counter tops and refrigerator drawers. 3 deluxe bedrooms all with ensuite luxurious baths. Closets and storage are abundant throughout. Two car attached garage with original dutch door for access to planting room. This quiet and peaceful lifestyle is close to Merritt Parkway, I-95 and Metro North.
