Open House Tour Favorite – 42 John Street – $7,250,000

There were not many new listings on today’s tour, but I did have a favorite….42 John St. This property is more about the privacy, and it’s location on the highest point of Round Hill – with distant views. It is owned by the estate of a daughter of the founder of Howard Johnson’s, Dorothy Henry. She was an interior designer, in her own right and it’s apparent in the home. Although one might think that there are some “dated” features, the planning, character and quality – are very apparent. It is sited proudly on 8+ acres – and is perfect for someone who is looking for tradition and something special….a summer get-away perhaps…
 
Perfectly manicured grounds

On top of the World

Charmingly Civilized
The l-o-o-o-n -g drive to home

 

Kitchen is still relevant – Beautiful Light

7500+ SF and 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half baths, garage apartment (which is beautiful) gazebo and gardener’s cottage…an absolute delight!
