The 16+acre Samuel Sloan Estate at 61 Lisburne Lane in Garrison, New York hit the market for $11,250,000 with both Richard Phan of Douglas Elliman and Kenneth Moore of Classiques Modernes.
The estate was commissioned in 1864 by industrialist and railroad magnate Samuel Sloan Sr. and wife Margaret Elmendorf Sloan as their country home. It boasts sweeping views of West Point, the Hudson Highlands and Catskills. The main house was built in the Gothic style, and the couple also built three additional homes on the estate’s original several hundred acres, all as wedding gifts for their three children. The land also consisted of outbuildings and barns.
When Samuel’s son and daughter-in-law, Katherine and Samuel Sloan Jr., inherited the Samuel Sloan Estate in 1907, the main home underwent a few changes. It was expanded and re-designed in the Italianate style. Fletcher Steele, one of America’s most famous landscape architects, was hired to re-design and expand the landscaping as well, which features romantic gardens, a grotto/pool and gravity-fed fountains.
Most recently in 2014, River Architects completed a massive renovation of the home, removing and transforming some of the older, awkward additions. The Greek Revivial-style façade was implemented with a two-story portico with masonry columns, unifying friezes, window pediments, and reclaimed hand-fired local bricks. The interiors are lined with architectural articulation, ornamental details and grand proportioned rooms – all complimenting the classic exterior. Additionally, modern-day conveniences were added such as an elevator, new mechanicals and more. The home was awarded LEED Silver Certification in November 2019 as a passive house.
Now, the home includes five to six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and three half-baths. Its entertaining floor consists of four wings. The formal wing opens onto a great room that features the grand salon, a central gallery, and a music room. The north-facing baronial formal dining room can seat comfortably 16 guests.
The south wing features antechamber that is accessible from the music room, the distinguished library, and the capacious eat-in commercial-grade kitchen outfitted with modern fixtures and appliances.
Past the kitchen, pantry area, and the auxiliary staircase, there is the luxurious amenity wing with the lofty entertainment lounge that opens onto the gunite swimming pool, outdoor dining pavilion, pergola, and lounge area. The most luxurious amenities would be the estate’s steam room, sauna, saltwater hot tub, and changing room.
The front upper level of the mansion consists of a central gallery and four private chambers. The master bedroom suite has two full baths, a front-facing bedroom, and a separate dressing/sitting room/study-both with access to the loggia. On each side of the gallery are additional bedrooms with baths.
A separate auxiliary section of the upper-level features two more bedrooms with baths, and a laundry room. There is a three car-garage and guest parking area, and a full attic and cellar also.
