Nestled into the scenic Litchfield foothills between Amenia, New York, and Sharon, Connecticut, Bogardus Hall is a historic luxury property with connections to one of the Hudson Valley's pioneering Dutch families. Everardus Bogardus arrived in 1633 as dominie of New Netherland colony, the second clergyman to serve New Amsterdam's Dutch Reformed Church on Pearl Street. James Bogardus was the forefather of American cast iron architecture, a style that continues to define its namesake 26-block SoHo historic district and other haute Lower Manhattan neighborhoods. When George Washington and Benedict Arnold famously crashed a night at Rhinebeck's Beekman Arms, the establishment was named Bogardus Tavern. You'll find Bogardus references from Tribeca to the Catskills everywhere from structures to street signs to blue-and-gold landmark placards.
Originally constructed in 1781 by Jacob Bogardus, a successful merchant, this stately Brick Georgian manse along babbling Webatuck Creek has undergone a series of renovations, preserving its original form while inviting modern amenities that include a chef's kitchen, exposed brick great room, wine cellar, media room and gym. A guest/caretaker house adds an additional two bedrooms and 1.5 baths, and a detached four-bay garage includes a fireplace office.
