An exquisite living room, a spacious dining room, a pantry kitchen and a cozy library with a half bath complete the ground-level amenities.

In 1885, John A. Glover commissioned the prominent architects McKim, Mead and White to create a plan in which layout, materials and site would perfectly complement one another. Boasting an architectural aesthetic envisioned to expertly match the natural splendor, today the resulting building, now restored, is one of the finest examples of the firms’ classic and extensively documented style.
When completed in 1887, it was sold as a luxurious summer getaway to a large family, whose members continued to maintain the home until 2010, through several generations, providing the stewardship that is so evident throughout the lot and its structures.
