Featured Home: $4.7 million Home on 77-acre Gray Craig Estate
A half-mile drive to this private haven winds through the magnificent Gray Craig estate past paddocks, stables, the gate house and engineer’s cottage. The 77-acre Gray Craig estate is now a private association of six homes
Built in 1924 as part of the H. T. Lindeberg-designed estate, the Kennel Cottage property was separated from the manor house in 2004. It has been completely rebuilt and expanded by the current owners.
The unassuming elegance of this 4,200 sq ft home is the epitome of refinement and taste. Details throughout the house incorporate the finest materials and craftsmanship and honor the original style of the estate. The first floor has a spacious gourmet kitchen, great room, sizable living room, elegant dining room, handsome library and a master suite. The second floor has a den/loft overlooking the great room, 2 guest bedrooms and a bath. The 2-car garage has a finished 750 sq ft space for an office or gym.
The grounds of Gray Craig were designed to emulate those of an English country estate with areas for walking, for enjoying the views and wildlife, and for important horticultural pursuits. The 8.47 acres of the Kennel Cottage property now include many of these elements: formal rose gardens, an amphitheater garden with a fish pond, a pillared Italianate tea house at the head of a 20,000 sq ft walled fruit orchard, a shade garden with rambling paths, and glacial stone outcroppings offering glorious views to Martha’s Vineyard from one of the highest points on Aquidneck Island. The tea house and orchard walls are of the same stone as the manor house and blend the gardens seamlessly into the natural beauty of the area.
It is currently on the market for $4.7 million. To request a showing, contact 401-855-1127 or email email@example.com
