Kenneth J. Moore is the President of Classiques Modernes International Realty and represents the fully renovated Philipstown estate. The list price is $11.25 million.

The volume remains–the soaring ceilings were kept–but the new residence now enjoys both formal and casual living spaces.”
Built in 1864, the railroad magnate’s house was originally known as Oulagisket. It underwent various transformations. In 1910 Samuel Sloane Jr. and his wife Katherine redesigned the home, renamed Lisburne Grange. Fletcher Steele, was one of the 20th century’s most glorified landscape architects. He augmented the estate’s surroundings with beautiful gardens and scenic lookouts. Enjoy breathtaking nature views.

There is a healthy balance of looking forward, of checking the rearview mirror, and of still being aware of the present. This house pays homage to its history It’s equipped with the conveniences and luxuries of today. But it keeps a keen eye towards the future. Lastly, it promotes an evolutionary and principled lifestyle.”
