Renowned Art Collectors Sherry and Joel Mallin List Their Pound Ridge Residence and Sculpture Park
Tucked away in the woods of Pound Ridge awaits Buckhorn, a 14-acre retreat owned by noted art collectors Sherry and Joel Mallin for the past 40 years. It might seem difficult to fathom the Mallins finding another backdrop to host their massive art collection, as Buckhorn has its own museum-quality art barn, but wherever the pair plant themselves is sure to be art-friendly. Looking to leave after a long tenure here, their treasured home better known to past visitors as Buckhorn Sculpture Park is now listed for $8.5 million.
In addition to the two-story art barn, the compound boasts seven other structures. Inside the 4,923-square-foot main house are four bedrooms and five bathrooms. Nearby, another endearing house overlooks the property’s picturesque lake. The listing also features a studio above a two-car garage and a quaint cottage. A pool house, two-bedroom guest house, and three-bedroom staff house then make Buckhorn the perfect setting for hosting glamourous parties or weekend guests.
The lush grounds are circled by the Morgenthau Nature Preserve, so privacy and serenity is all but guaranteed. Since the estate is only 40 miles from New York City, jaunting in from the countryside to dive into art museums or attend events is always an option, too.
The couple’s art collection is woven across the property, from chilling poolside to standing in the wine cellar. Only one work (by Andy Goldsworthy) is included in the sale, but the Mallins may entertain offers if the buyer wishes to purchase art.
Mary H. Palmerton of Houlihan Lawrence holds the artiful listing.
