The Expansive New York Property Features a Private Pond, Sculpture Park, and Art Barn
It is important to take note of this if you are an art lover!
For $6.5 million, Sherry and Joel Mallin have decided to move out of their longtime Pound Ridge home, a sprawling compound boasting numerous residences, a 70-piece sculpture park and an art barn/gallery, which has been in the family for more than four decades.
The 13.5-acre Buckthorn property is a premier site for hosting large groups, extended families or arty-farty weekend parties, thanks to the eight structures spread over it, making it a great place to host large groups, extended families and/or arty-farty parties.
The main house, built in 1933, is almost 5,000 square feet in size and it has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. Hardwood floors, arched doorways, sweeping center staircases, and hardwood moldings all contribute to the beauty of the building.
A fireplace warms the paneled library and there is another fireplace along the brick wall of the kitchen. Harvest Gold Formica does appear in the kitchen, however, indicating the couple's main interests lie elsewhere in their home than in the kitchen.
The marketing materials for the hotel do not show any pictures of any of the bathrooms. On the other hand, there are two wine cellars in the hotel, one for white wines and one for red wines. The red cellar houses a sculpture by Tony Matelli, which stands in the middle of the cellar.
Another residence overlooks the picturesque lake on the property and is connected to the main house by a porte-cochère. Additionally, there is a studio above a two-car garage, a small cottage, a pool house, a guest house with two bedrooms, and a staff residence with three bedrooms.
The Mallins have also built a 9,200-square-foot art barn that is equipped with two levels of exhibition space, where works by famous artists such as Chuck Close, Sean Scully, Richard Serra, and Andy Goldsworthy have been exhibited among others.
Throughout the entire property, you will find the couple's impressive art collection, which consists of pieces by Dan Graham, Sol LeWitt, Joel Shapiro and Anish Kapoor, at every turn, including the personal outdoor sculpture garden, where works by Sol LeWitt, Joel Shapiro and Anish Kapoor can be found.
It is true that the artworks are not part of the sale of the property, but a large number of them, in fact, are offered for sale as part of the sale of the property. This is either the case or it will be the case.
The Mallins plan to sell about 1,000 pieces from their collection to Sotheby's over the next few years, according to Rich Report. At the auction, it is estimated that the collection will fetch approximately $50 million, based on the estimates provided by auction experts.
Listed by Houlihan Lawrence agents Mary H. Palmerton and Jody Rosen, Buckthorn's attractively landscaped grounds also include an old apple orchard with 40 trees, a pool, a pond, flower beds, two two-car garages, rolling lawns, and dense woodlands.
