A CEO’s Storybook Bedford Corners Home Dubbed Rockledge Farm Lists for $16.5M
Magical, enchanting, and imaginative are words that come to mind when one thinks of fairytales. And, if worlds of whimsy or classic cottage style speak to you, an estate in Bedford Corners, New York known as Rockledge Farm is sure to make you swoon. Its listing price, $16.5 million, is also a fantasy for many.
Rockledge Farm is vibrantly verdant from the moment you lay eyes on it. The long driveway permits a lengthy journey that ends in the reveal of the storybook estate. Crawling with ivy and other voluminous greenery across the property’s 26 acres, the intricate grounds have been carefully cultivated.
With multiple structures and 10,o00 square feet of interiors to explore, there’s space for every character. In the main house, a grand kitchen opens to several dining areas, while living spaces encased by windows capture the countryside views just outside. Five beds and eight bathrooms make up the main house, while a three-bedroom guest house and two-bedroom guest cottage are also on the property. The primary suite is most lavish, of course, offering perks like a private balcony and outdoor shower.
Across the estate’s mystical scenery, amenities also fill the acreage. There’s a perfectly-placed pool, Har-Tru tennis court, and a rooftop lounge at the pool house. Alpacas currently roam the land—perhaps housed in the barn, which also has a golf simulator.
Less than an hour outside of NYC, Brian Milton of Compass has brought the unique estate to market. According to the Observer, the previous owners were Daun Paris and Peter Hauspurg, who passed their llamas on to the current CEO owner.
