Description

A one-of-a-kind property that includes 3 parcels for a total of 9.65 acres, this listing includes 2 cottages, a barn, a pond, waterfall, stream, open field and some woods. It has been loved and virtually unchanged for 75 years, and is now ready for a new beginning. In 1949, artist and advertising Mad Man Arthur Sudler and his artist wife, Janet Sudler, purchased the compound at Lauer Road in LaGrange for their weekend painting retreat and escape from NYC. Sudler was the President of Sudler & Hennessy, one of the most renowned and cutting edge ad agencies in the world at the time; Andy Warhol got his first job there and one of the shining stars of the company, Herb Lubalin, created the first NBC peacock for television. Their artist daughter, Gail, married Thomas Rockwell, writer and son of the American painter, Norman Rockwell. The property's history has a rich, artistic heritage. For 75 years, the Rockwells and Sudlers held this timeless landscape as a foundation for their artistic inspirations: the natural waterfall, the always dynamic source; past the falls on the horizon point, the sun drops down behind the ridge overlooking the property, adding even more secret magic. The high point of the property is the additional pasture land, originally part of the Chorney Farm, which was one of the oldest working farms in the area, offering breathtaking vistas of the mountains beyond, which remain virtually untouched by time. This is the kind of property that rarely comes on the market, perhaps because it's been cherished and held as sacred to those who have been given the gift of residing here for many generations. May this beloved property welcome its new inhabitants with its ever-changing light, reflective ponds and natural, rustic beauty. Many happy holidays were spent here, sledding down the hills, riding Jenny Penny, the donkey, watching the ducks and drinking cocoa in its peaceful quiet. Every season reveals new wonders. It is time for its new story. Perhaps you will tell it.
