Property Description

If you love a house with history, this gracious 1929 Cotswold-style home has a wonderful & storied past. Built and originally owned by philanthropist Ogden Ludlow, husband to the great actress Katharine Hepburn, this house is only now available for the first time in 37 years. Resting on over 4 very private acres in a sought-after location, close to all in-town amenities, the sprawling lawn and mature landscaping offers peace & tranquility. Step through the front door and hearken back to the sophisticated elegance of the bygone era of the 1930s. The bespoke living room will delight with its high ceiling, field stone fireplace and dual French doors to an expansive private terrace. The sun-drenched formal dining room, adjacent butler’s pantry and kitchen will inspire gatherings big and small. Take the elevator, serving 3 levels, upstairs where the primary suite is a quiet oasis with sitting room, fireplace, and adjacent bath. Four additional spacious bedrooms, three full baths, 2 office/study spaces and large laundry room complete the second floor. Rich wood floors flow throughout. The circular driveway, slate roof, copper gutters, field stone and live-edge wood exterior lend to the quiet elegance and grace of this home. Rich in history, it's a private oasis with local convenience.
