SOLD -Lambert Road, New Canaan, CT

$6,995,000. A lady never likes to reveal her age, but this charming granddame is elegantly celebrating her one-hundredth birthday.  “Woodley”, as she was called back then, was originally designed and built by renowned architect Cameron Clark for the VanSinderin family to enjoy as an equestrian country retreat.  The initial 15-acre property included the main house, a stone barn, staff and chauffeur quarters, a carriage barn, extensive stonewalls, perennial gardens, fountains as well as a secret sunken garden.  In 1925 she was renamed “Treetop” and has had a colorful history through the years including hosting a private zoo complete with a kangaroo, llamas, a Sicilian donkey, sheep, pigs and an assortment of feathered friends.

The current owners fell in love with the home’s architecture, ambience and history. They hired award-winning architect Dinyar Wadia who meticulously re-imagined portions of the interior space, careful to keep the integrity of the original design inspiration. Constructed using classic elements of axis ways and interior sight lines each beautifully appointed room embraces outdoor vistas.

Majestic trees still command the long driveway and extraordinary English style landscaping. Nestled amongst the gardens and stonewalls is the in ground heated pool and spa with a sight line down to the old meadow.  Memories of her past beckon within the stalls of the original stone barn and the sounds from the fountain in secret sunken garden.

Within in her walls she has been privy to countless bedtime stories, witnessed elegant soirees and weddings, resonated with dinnertime laughter, hosted Easter egg hunts and Christmas mornings and has been adorned with fine arts and music.

She is a gem, greatly loved through the years by the families that have enjoyed her warmth and grandeur. She remains one of the signature and historic homes that has been gracefully updated with elegance, sophistication and the finest amenities.
