Once past the privacy gates, take the bucolic drive up to HIGHOVER, a 30+ acre retreat atop a hillside with panoramic 270? views of the Connecticut River, Whalebone Creek & Cove & over 1/2 mile of waterfront. Designed in 1917 for a NYC socialite by architect Alfred Hopkins renowned for his commissions by Alfred Vanderbilt and Louis Comfort Tiffany, sits the stately main residence. Constructed completely with native stone from the property’s quarry accented with original hand split VT slate roof tiles, this home defines timeless elegance. The current and only the second owners of the property have lovingly restored, renovated, and enhanced the living spaces by subtly incorporating state-of-the-art features throughout. A federal period guest house with refined whimsy sits at the foot of the driveway. The 8,650 SF property offers 8 bedrooms, 7 full and 5 half baths of sophisticated living space. A former portico was enclosed connecting a newly designed primary bedroom suite to the grand living room with its 20-ft barreled ceiling. A state-of the art kitchen, a library, an elegant guest suite, a movie theater with a Sony projector and surround sound, and an 800-bottle wine cellar are found at the heart of the home. A suite of guest bedrooms on the east wing offers a special sanctuary for visitors with separate entrance and porte-cochere. Spacious and comfortable on the inside, the expansive exterior is serene and private with room for a helicopter pad – truly a paradise!
