Seeing new homes hatch from the subdivision of older, larger properties is hardly uncommon. Less frequent is when the resulting new construction shares comparable depth of character as its predecessor. Sarosca Farm Estates goes several steps further: not only does the new development match the scale and grandeur of the parcel's edificial forefather, but an adjacent new home rose concurrently with the top-to-bottom renovation of the historic one, preserving its full integrity while preparing it for another 97 years.
Now, both the original 1917 English Manor and a new custom home on its former land holdings are being offered for sale.
20 Sarosca Farm Lane | $4,290,000
The 23 acres which comprise today's 10 home sites at Sarosca Farm Estates once belonged in their entirety to the original owners of this one. Set at the end of a private lane, the 7,000-square-foot manse boasts sumptuous interiors and 3.76 retained acres. Groomed grounds, complete with an expansive bluestone terrace and a 50' x 20' heated gunite pool/spa, provide a secluded enclave ideal for outdoor entertaining all summer.
3 Stone Bridge Road | $3,895,000
Contrasting the Tudor lines of its elder neighbor is a brand new, brick Georgian Colonial that despite its modernity could pass for a similar vintage. No expense was spared meticulously crafting this warm but sleek estate, which boasts six bedrooms and ample amenities including a cutting edge home theater. The chef's kitchen is sun-drenched and impeccably executed.
