Property Description

Balderbrae, a storied estate built in 1910 by noted horticulturist Louise Bebe Wilder and her husband, architect Robert Wilder. They created the original stone cottage and gardens whose history and simple elegance infuse every design element on this property today. In 1980 interior designer David Easton purchased the property and added a stone and cedar main house with a cedar shingle roof reflecting his signature Anglo-American design style while maintaining the delicate balance between formal and informal spaces. A large central great room is the main living area and features rustic beamed 30 ft ceilings, two symmetrical fireplaces, French doors and terra cotta tiled floors, design elements that repeat through-out much of the house creating symmetry and connection from room to room. The recently renovated kitchen features extensive cabinetry. The center island and counters are rift white oak and the appliances, all Wolf and Sub Zero, are brand new. The focal point, however, is the fireplace and its hand made Moroccan tiled surround. Other features include a library, a primary suite, beautifully renovated baths with artisan tiles and honed marble, and custom millwork though-out. Since purchasing the property in 2014, the current owners have renovated all three buildings: the main house, guest cottage and carriage house. The cottage retains its original beamed ceilings, fireplace and old world charm. A studio replaces an old carriage house, a perfect artist's retreat with radiant heated concrete floors, vaulted plain sawn white oak ceilings and glass folding doors. Outside gardens grace the courtyard along with wisteria festooned pergolas. Two loggias and a heated pool make for easy summer entertaining. Urns, fountains, stone walls and columns, and a clocktower all add grace points to the landscape. With the Ramapo Mountains as a backdrop, this 5.4 acre estate boarded by state parkland and equestrian trails, in the words of David Easton, "is a magical place." Perfect weekend getaway or a primary residence. Great for creatives looking for a private home with a separate studio. Just 36 miles from Manhattan. A special property with a unique pedigree.
