Twin Ponds, a stunning modernist structure of glass and concrete, is the masterpiece of the late Robin Roberts, founder and owner of Clarence House and architect Milton Klein in coordination with landscape architect, Armand Benedek. It has been published twice by Architectural Digest.
The formal rooms are walled in glass with views in every direction. The formal living room, with a massive fireplace, is surrounded by water and is reached through a glass bridge.
The formal dining room with lacquered Macassar Ebony wood-paneled walls and a gold leaf ceiling has views of a stream and waterfall.
The library has walls paneled in Zebrawood, a fireplace, a wet bar and sliding doors accessing the opulent pool area. There is a bedroom and bath reserved for the lucky guest on the first floor.
The second floor is comprised solely of the master bedroom suite with views of the property in all directions. The completely private bedroom is walled in glass with Birdseye Maple built-ins and two marble baths. Luxurious closets are built in.
The estate is situated on 21.7 magical acres of perennial and Japanese gardens, specimen trees, walking paths through Mountain Laurel filled woods, orchards of flowering apple trees and an allee of 60 Cherry trees. A large stocked Koi pond with a meandering bridge and a boat house are the centerpiece of the property.
The compound includes private guest quarters, a billiard room with a full kitchen, a 2 bedroom gate house and a stone barn as well as a tennis court and pool. Garage spaces for over 8 cars are spread through the compound.
Every corner of the property provides an enchanting delight- whether it is a formal rose garden, a trellised sculpture garden, a meditation garden or a vintage Gypsy wagon hidden in the woods. An architectural and horticultural masterpiece less than one hour from NYC!
