Description

Welcome to Far Away Meadows, once the country estate and vacation residence of Grace Moore, an operatic soprano and actress of the 1930’s. Built in 1715 with a large addition in 1939, this pristine antique property has been lovingly cared for and meticulously renovated while preserving its authentic antique features and storied past. The parklike grounds include architecturally designed gardens, a pool with cabana, stone terraces, a vintage greenhouse, outdoor fireplace, and sports court. Inside, the main level features original antique wood beams and columns, original wide-plank hardwood floors, and handmade wrought iron door hardware. The spacious living room with a 300-year-old masonry beehive fireplace and the dining room with a stone fireplace and wet bar lead to the kitchen with luxury appliances and the grand family room. This elegant room with 24” wide plank floors and a vaulted/beamed ceiling where Grace and her husband Valentin entertained their Hollywood friends and guests offers a fireplace and panoramic views of the property through a bow window running the length of the room. Upstairs, the primary suite offers a vintage dressing area with walk-in closets and a newly renovated large bath with a heated marble floor shower. Finished living space in the lower level features a fireplace, wet bar, full bath, wine cellar, and French doors leading to the pool and cabana with vintage 1930’s Hollywood vibes. A rare opportunity not to be missed! New 4 bedroom septic being installed prior to closing.
