Property Description

Cedarhurst Mansion, a local treasure on the National Historic Registry, is a 26-room luxury estate on 10 acres with tranquil English-style garden. Entertaining 4 U.S. presidents and foreign dignitaries required expanding the simple farm house built in 1856. Architect Cass Gilbert designed additions in 1911 and 1917 to include the impressive front veranda, graceful foyer entering from front and back, comfortable library, warm lounge/bar, and of the grand ballroom which seats 200 including main floor - note gold leaf etched design. Family living on the second floor: 11 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, family room, office, etc. For the past 20 years, the sellers have been loving caretakers of the property and its history, investing much to maintain the original beauty and update to make it functional for the event business for English High Tea and weddings of up to 500 guests on thegrounds. It is time for a new owner to have an opportunity to live, enjoy, care for this gem.
