Sotheby's International Realty - Garrison, NY

LISBURNE Hall is an elaborate 9000 square foot mansion on 19 plus acres set on an escarpment with sweeping views of the Hudson Valley and overlooking West Point Military Academy and the Hudson River at Garrison, New York. 1 hour north of New York City by train or car. This superb transformation of the former Samuel Sloan estate from the original Carpenter Gothic to Greek Revival architectural style offers an elegant way of life for the new steward. Updated heating and cooling systems and energy conservation are designed for the highest performance. The exterior of the house is refinished with hand-fired reclaimed brick from local brickworks. A two-story portico with masonry columns offers the grandeur expected of the design and zinc batten seam roofing offers the durability of 100 year protection. The gardens are newly laid to compliment the house. The upper terrace displays ancient Tunisian columns and leads to more terraces below. A variety of ancient specimen trees surround the house that once graced the original mansion. The palatial interior includes two formal reception rooms either side of a grand entrance hall. A sunny morning room, library, dining room looking out to the garden and an elaborate kitchen. Doors from the garden room and sauna lead out to a private terrace and swimming pool. There are 6 spacious bedrooms with bathrooms en suite. All three floors are connected by elevator as well as staircases. Two staff apartments are in the original carriage house at the end of the property.
