The majestic 7 ½-acre Philip Cheney Mansion Estate is more than a luxury property:it is a story, a moment of splendor frozen in time. It represents a dream carried from the Gilded Age to the spectacle of the 21st century. A National Historic Landmark the Mansion was designed in the Jacobean style by Stanford White; then reconstructed in 1928 by “American Renaissance” landscape designer Charles Adam Platt. This was not a restoration, it was a preservation maintaining every original detail of the estate. Painstaking effort was used to integrate today's modern luxuries such as central air conditioning. The wall coverings are original Zuber of the Italian countryside. The spectacular ceiling panels once graced a palace in Vienna. The 9 original fireplaces were imported from around the world. Custom mouldings and woodworking were hand-carved from the worlds foremost craftsman. With 13 years of effort from preservation architect Jared Edwards, the Cheney Mansion Estate was returned to its original historic charm. There is no other estate throughout CT as breathtaking as The Philip Cheney Mansion. Own a magnificent piece of American History.
