FIRST TIME LISTED! NOTE LARGE PRICE REDUCTION! Country Kingdom- In the early 1960s, Teddy & Arthur Edelmans innovative color work in exotic leathers put them at the center of an exciting fashion world where a not-yet famous Andy Warhol designed their ads and marketing materials. Over the years, they switched their focus to making luxurious upholstery leathers for architects and decorators that covered most of their furnishings and lined their elevator. In 1969 they used their unique sense of design and taste to build this amazing property! This widely published home was forged out of two pre-1840 pegged barns found nearby, dismantled, numbered and reconstructed in 1969 on its current site using the vintage exterior wood on the interior walls. The beamed living room, w/a massive fireplace, and adjoining enclosed porch are 22 ft high with a combined 60 ft sweep. The room's vista sweeps to the outdoors. The living room walls, w/the warm-toned barnwood walls are and have been a showcase for large-scale art. The enclosed porch, 20 ft X 40 ft, is where family meals and holidays for 35 plus people have been seated graciously and also serves as an alternative gathering area. It has wide views of the river passage through the land overlooking a waterfall. The dining room, a cozy respite from vast spaces, works beautifully for smaller groups. In 2013, a 22 ft. X 40 ft. greenhouse was built and attached to the home, adjoining the living room.

  • Remarks addendumIn addition to housing plants, it has a lovely, all season sitting area with a modern recirculating fountain- a wonderful preamble to holiday festivities throughout the year. At the same time, a modern steel and aluminum deck was constructed parallel to the enclosed porch, overlooking the running river. The master bedroom is situated on the first floor and features a massive windowed vista, a large gas fireplace, a huge walk-in custom closet and, steps away, a door opens to a dramatic steel, windowed indoor lap pool, 45 feet long, that runs parallel to the running stream. The steel buttressed framework lends a timelessly modern look featuring all four season's dramatic views of nature. Six family bedrooms were built dormitory style, upstairs. The Edelman Leather lined elevator goes to all floors. The lower level, opening to the outside gardens and the river, features a private, large guest suite with vintage barn beams and its own bath. It also features a luxurious family room with a fireplace, library and a new glass addition filled with sunlight where nature is allowed to take over. The park-like 31 plus acres has been cultivated over the years to create pockets of gardens, perennials and open fields all focused on the river. It includes an island with a bridge over the river and vegetable gardens on both sides. The property borders North Salem, NY and the bucolic riding/walking trails can be accessed from a trail at the far end of the property. There is a 65 foot outdoor pool with a pool house that includes a kitchen, half bath and outdoor shower. Again, it provides wonderful entertaining space and beautiful vistas. There is a charming two bedroom cottage in the distance. In addition, the former stable was turned into a garage, greenhouse and workshop. This is a pastoral place where young people dream of having their weddings, where you can enjoy ultimate privacy and never be bored.
