Rarely available, this unique estate is now being offered for rent for $30,000/month
Formerly owned by the late composer Marvin Hamlisch, 465 Shunpike is a completely transformed compound designed around 40 acres of pastoral land creating the ultimate weekend retreat or full-time home. Your journey begins as you drive through the beautiful linden tree-lined drive to arrive at the restored vintage farm house overlooking the four circa 1850’s repurposed barns completing the entertainment center for your weekend activities. The main house takes on a more contemporary style with a large open country kitchen featuring a beautiful grand stone fireplace in the dining area. Cozy up in the library or formal living room, both of which offer lovely fireplaces. The organic vegetable garden and fruit trees are located just off of the main house to provide farm to table cuisine at the end of each day. Beyond the vegetable garden you will find an in-ground gunite pool to enjoy summer sunsets with a glass of rose.
The accomplished architect, Paul Gleicher, has repurposed each of the four vintage agricultural barns. These barns were individually and specifically created to deliver a special experience. Exposed beams, wide board floors, and oak paneling offer the authentic aura of the original barns while tying together the themes of entertainment, artist's studio, media room, office space, and yoga studio. The largest barn, featuring soaring 40’ ceilings, is an extraordinary space ideal for cocktail parties and social gatherings. The main room is anchored by an immense floor-to-ceiling wood burning stone fireplace. The placement of these unique dwellings creates an amazing courtyard in which to enjoy endless opportunities to entertain, and the entire property encompasses 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and 5 fireplaces.
