YOUR OWN PRIVATE COMPOUND! NEW PRICE! 213 years ago the Morris Manor was constructed. As far as historic homes, this one is preeminent in our market. The Morris Estate was part of an original land grant from the King of England to Major General Staats Long Morris and later passed on to his brother Lewis Morris, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, as well as his son General Jacob Morris for whom Morris NY and the State Forest are named. This lovely estate, nestled in the beautiful Butternut Valley, is a window into the history of our country. Built in 1805 the Manor is the centerpiece of a 177 acre estate surrounded by 10 outbuildings, manicured lawns and impeccably maintained stone walls. Painstakingly restored in 1997, the manor house represents the finest in craftsmanship and classic design combined with modern amenities subtly introduced for today's taste and comfort. The manor boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 10 fireplaces within its nearly 10,000 sq ft of living space. 12 over 12 custom made windows allow natural light to stream in, in every room. A stunning ballroom graces the lower level, adorn with a magnificent ornamental ceiling and an adjacent butlers pantry, ideal for entertaining. Be transported to another place in time as you walk the grounds surrounding the manor. You may find yourself in the annex building, once the center for recreation - still housing a magnificent fireplace, period bowling alley, and handball court. You'll be lost in thought in the stable building, as you admire fine quality details that go far beyond the expected. Dream of an equestrian lifestyle that is within your reach. A expansive greenhouse adds beauty and value as it allows you to cultivate your horticultural interests. This is truly an exquisite estate. Unable to adequately describe in text or photos as with so many incredible places on earth, this must be experienced to appreciate. There is a feeling you get as you walk the grounds and pass through the buildings that is like no other. It is a place where you are able to combine the past, present and future seamlessly. A rare opportunity for an investor with a vision, maybe a spectacular wedding venue, a high end retreat or just a magnificent place to indulge your passions. Truly an American Treasure!
