Property Description

This bucolic and secluded 15.54-acre estate is approached by a tree-lined drive that opens to an expanse of rolling fields dotted with specimen trees that provide opportunities for equestrian and recreational outdoor activities. Once the working part of the John Shaffer Phipps and Margarita Grace Phipps estate that is now the historic Old Westbury Gardens, the property is comprised of five lots with a possible subdivision. Purchased from the original estate by Michael Grace Phipps, the accomplished polo playing son of John Shaffer Phipps, the compound was used to quarantine and train polo ponies. It includes a four-bedroom artist's studio, a country house, a large tin barn, three-bedroom cottages, the original ice house, laundry and horse stalls, and a four-bay garage with a spacious workshop. Surrounded by ponds and woodlands, the property is directly adjacent to the 216-acre Old Westbury Gardens. This Is A Unique & Wonderful Property Whose Next Chapter Awaits...
