Edgehill was built in approximately 1870 and was once the home of the renowned artist Louis McClellan Potter. This stunning property comprises 23.8 acres, meticulously restored by the current owner.
Property includes a large English bank barn of peg and timber construction, and now houses room for 2 cars, a pool house which comprises a kitchen with laundry, and changing rooms with indoor and outdoor shower. Property also features a 20X40' in-ground heated swimming pool surrounded by newly created laid stone walls and beautifully landscaped gardens replete with all manner of shrubs and flowers including Rhododendron, Hydrangea, Hostas, Lilies/Irises, and exotic species of evergreen such as Dawn Redwoods and Carolina Hemlock: all fed by an extensive computerized irrigation system (computer/tanks/pumps located in lower barn).
Below the pool you will also find a spring fed pond with a fountain (to maintain health). The pond is stocked with Koi, along with sterile carp to control algae. Sunset lovers will appreciate the west-facing blue stone terrace with its spectacular view of the Catskill mountains. Louis McClellan Potter (former famous artist in residence) statue in grotto. A curtain of 150 year old Maple trees along the perimeter of front lawn.
The 16+ acres is situated outside of the village in the town of Chatham, and comprises a wooded hill (with a two acre clearing) that rises a hundred foot above the house and is served by an old dirt road, affording spectacular views of the Catskills.
The house has been extensively restored to meticulous standards. Working fireplaces grace the dining room and living room. A grand hallway for entertaining. The den on the first floor for serious conversation, a sitting area on the landing of the second floor for more relaxed topics. Spacious bedrooms, lavish baths all in keeping with Potter's aesthetic.
