"Mill Pond Farm". This meticulously preserved and restored iconic country compound, originally the Benjamin Meeker Homestead, sits back on 4.7 lush, private acres surrounded by unparalleled bucolic beauty along a scenic stretch of the Saugatuck River, bordered by 350 acres of conservancy land and offers a myriad of outstanding amenities including dedicated private work-from-home office space. The magnificent grounds include a free-form Gunite pool, a tennis court, perennial gardens, mature trees, sweeping green lawns, expansive stone walls and terraces, stream, pond and dazzling waterfall. The main 2 BR/2BA residence, the heart and soul of this remarkable estate, has retained its historic integrity by preserving period details that merge seamlessly with modern updates. Complementing the main residence are three stunning outbuildings, all of which provide living, work and entertainment space for guests and extended family… a spectacular chestnut Barn with 2 levels of chic living/recreation space and an attached Machin-designed Greenhouse; a c.1786 Carriage House and a c.1830 Barn and Buttery. This singular estate is a rare and exceptional treasure. A resort in the Summer, a wonderland in the Winter, a safe haven for multi-generational living and a private retreat for a lifetime of memories. 53 miles to NYC! See the property video - "Mill Pond Farm"... It doesn't get better than this.

Four buildings, totaling over 7000 square feet of finished living space with a total of 5 bedrooms, 5 full Baths, 7 fireplaces, 2 private office spaces, all of which are heated and cooled. The main residence, a 2600+ sq ft, 2 Bedroom, 2 full Bath home with modifications and numerous renovations dating back to the early 1800's, has preserved numerous authentic details including wide-board chestnut, pine and cherry flooring, original post-and-beam construction, six-over-six mullioned windows and the original beehive oven while expertly incorporating modern updates such as the professional Kitchen (Sub-Zero, Viking, Asko), central air, Master Bedroom Suite w/private luxe Bath, fireplace and dressing room, chic updated Baths, a temperature controlled wine cellar, finished walk-out lower level with original stone foundation walls, slate floor, wet bar and fireplace and more!
