Actress Arlene Dahl and Designer Marc Rosen List Their New York Weekend Home
Through gates and down a long driveway sits Treetops, a Rockland County estate centered by an Italianate Victorian built in 1859. This sublime slice of rural New York has long been the weekend home of Hollywood actress Arlene Dahl and perfume bottle designer Marc Rosen. And, in ‘Three Little Words,’ it just listed. The storied abode is now asking $4.95 million.
When Rosen first discovered the home 40 years ago, he oversaw and pioneered a complete restoration, determined to revive its original beauty. Mission accomplished. A traditional mansard roof and front-step deck create an inviting entrance into the historic home, while ornate finishes and original hardwood floors seal in its Victorian charm. Unique to the primary suite, marble fireplaces in the bedroom and bathroom make for a grand yet cozy atmosphere for relaxation.
Across the approximately 7.3-acre estate, you’ll find an antique three-story barn with a garage and apartment, as well as a heated pool. Primely located across from the Tallman State Park and only a half-hour from New York City, this pretty property with six bedrooms could soon become another’s beautiful getaway.
Dahl, who gained popularity in the 1950s and was a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer star, and Rosen, who has created iconic perfume bottles for Burberry, Karl Lagerfeld, and more, certainly have enjoyed it. They have reportedly hosted many glamorous celebrity events at the property, just beyond Manhattan’s glistening lights.
