There’s a comforting feeling about Brookfield Farms. You’ll first sense it when you pass through the privacy gates and breathe-in the clean gentle breezes filled with birdsong. You’ll feel it as you travel down the gracious driveway, past shady groves and a tranquil lake ringed by scores of century-old oak trees and bordered by acres of meticulously manicured lawns. And you’ll know it when you experience the property’s charming American Farmhouse architecture reminiscent of a much simpler place and time.
It’s that all-too-rare feeling that tells you to “relax…you’re finally home”. Welcome to Brookfield Farms.
As if from the pages of a Mark Twain novel, where lush blackberry bushes grow alongside white picket fences and a pastoral fishing pond is where you while away the hours on a summer’s day, this Gentlemen’s Farm sits upon a 60 acre tapestry of some of the most spectacular land the area has to offer. Majestically conceived and finely crafted Brookfield Farms stands out as an exceptional estate property in the exclusive development of Hidden Valley.
Remaining aesthetically in sync with the natural beauty and quietude of its surroundings are the many facilities that service the property including three guest cottages; housekeepers quarters; a sparkling pool; an equestrian complex with four stalls, tack room, barn, and riding ring; a five-car garage and gym; and organic gardens that produce a variety of vine-ripened fruits and vegetables for the dinner table.
Anchoring the compound is the generous 6,720 square foot, 3 bedroom 4 bath main residence. Noted architect Ralph Arnold has created the home keeping in mind classic American Farmhouse detailing. The dormer windows, a deep wrap-around porch that captures passing breezes, double-hung pane windows framing the striking panoramas and a crisp white-on-white painted brick façade perfectly reflect the delightfully picturesque design.
The two-level home warmly welcomes you with a casual elegance that showcases a symphony of meticulous craftsmanship including rich hand hewn oak flooring, crafted limestone, five wood burning fireplaces, and impeccable custom flourishes.
On the main floor the Great Room provides a large area for gatherings or comfortable relaxation. The home’s oak flooring has been rearticulated with a series of open beams that cross the high ceiling, accentuating the area’s stature. A double-height corner fireplace adds an attractive focal point while the liberal use of paned French doors and windows are designed to immerse the room with soft light along with providing an easy step-out onto the spacious porch and the views beyond.
The kitchen is an aesthetic and culinary experience. Visually framed by an expansive granite food preparation/bar area, its texture and color palette has been crafted to perfectly merge with the rest of the room. Masterfully outfitted with extensive custom cabinetry, exquisite hand-made window coverings, and artisan tile-work accents, the kitchen’s many quality amenities include appliances by Viking, Sub-Zero and Miele along with a butler’s pantry with temperature controlled wine storage.
Accessed by either staircase or private elevator, the sumptuously appointed and secluded second-level owner’s suite runs the entire width of the home and offers a variety of visual and sumptuous experiences. Magnificently appointed dual private dressing rooms and baths finished with craftsman-quality woods, stones and tile; a sitting room/library with a wood-burning fireplace – ideal as a private office or luxurious retreat; a spacious master bedroom with plush carpeting, intimate sitting area and fireplace; and expansive windows and double French doors that open to the spacious private terrace where you can begin and end each day relishing the spectacular land and changing seasons at Brookfield Farms.
