Description

Hortulus Farm is arguably one of the most spectacular private gardens on the American East Coast. Comprising 100 acres, the property offers, within the 100 acres, a separate, fully operational nursery. The nursery has 60,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space, an indoor facility and architecturally designed pergolas. The private area of Hortulus is filled with imposing specimen trees and shrubbery, 200,000 daffodils, internationally themed gardens, Birch and Pine allees and other varieties too vast to list. The main stone farmhouse is circa 1700~s and looks out across a stream and a lake filled with black swans and other water fowl. The floating gazebo creates a living canvas of Georges Sevrat~s ~Sunday afternoon on the Island of Grandes Jatte.~ The property contains a 2 bedroom and 2.5 bath converted barn plus a larger barn that serves as the property~s office and garden museum. The caretaker~s home is a separate 2 bedroom/1 bath ranch. The large utilitarian bank barn houses the property~s animals and farm equipment. A massive circular pool rivals most pools/fountains found in public parks. The overall property, which is in Conservancy, does allow for a second residence with separate driveway. Hortulus Farm is an extremely rare property that can evolve toward a myriad of directions. The current stewards spent 40 years creating this masterpiece and now it awaits a new owner to grasp the ~brush~ and continue the canvas.
