A recently remodelled residence built on a 1.73 acre property formerly known as the Four Leaf Clover Garden on Stanley McCormick’s 87 acre Riven Rock estate has sold for $7.5 million after listing for $7.8 million in June 2020. Designed by architect Peter Becker, the single-storey residence spans more than 4,600 square feet with main house, guest house and pool cabana. Featuring incredible historical provenance coupled with extraordinary modern interiors and amenities, art lover’s will rejoice with the open floor plan, voluminous ceilings and massive art walls throughout. The designer remodelled interiors include grand living spaces bathed in natural light through south-facing walls of French doors. Rich wood floors, fine tile and marble work, and elegant chandeliers and wall sconces throughout. There are 3 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms including the master suite with custom fireplace and private loggia.
Inspired by Francis Underhill, the home features a modern U-shaped design that allows every room of the house to flow seamlessly to the landscaped central courtyard, which is carefully designed on an axis so that the original staircase, the front entry, the Four Leaf Clover design, and pool all maximize the inherent symmetry of all the design elements. The original garden paths of the McCormick Estate have been replicated by Landscape Architect, Byron DeBray, and much of the original sandstone stairs and four leaf clover design, now a lovely pond, have been restored with stone from the property. This unique property was on the market for $7.8 million with Jason Streatfeild of Douglas Elliman.
