The Morrocroft Manor – $9,875,000

The Morrocroft Manor

Built in 1927 for former state governor Cameron Morrison, this gracious English Manor was conceived by acclaimed New York architect Harrie T. Lindeberg.  Once surrounded by a 3,000 acre dairy farm, the structure was lovingly restored by its current owners and now rests upon several parklike acres in the heart of the South Park neighborhood.  The complete renovation finalized in 2004 provides every amenity a fine estate deserves.  English boxwoods lined by flagstone terraces set the tone for the manicured rose and vegetable gardens.  This breathtaking sanctuary, which has earned recognition on the National Register of Historic Places, depicts Lindeberg’s design concept of harmony between the home and its surrounding environment.
Inside, the airy, light-filled formal and informal rooms are anchored by unique fireplaces and graced with hand-cast plaster moldings. Imported English leaded glass fills the panes of the numerous windows.  Encompassing a wing on the second floor, the master suite is crowned by a barrel-vaulted ceiling and includes an elegant his and hers boudoir suite and office.  A suite located atop the four-car garage may house visitors or staff members.  In the basement, a wine vault stores fine vintages.  A solarium, game room, and exercise room are further highlights.
