Harrington, New York, Estate of the Day
Last time I was looking at houses in this region, we found an aging beauty of a Stanford White. Today's find is a bit newer and aspires to grandeur in a whole different way. The circular cobblestone driveway has a three-tier Haddonstone fountain and a two-story entrance hall full of columns and a formal dining room with a fireplace. Other details include a family room with mahogany built-ins and a 60-inch television set, a gourmet kitchen and a large master suite. The lower level is designed for entertaining and has a wine tasting room, spa area with a whirlpool, game room, home theater, sports bar and another kitchen. The eight-bedroom home sits on two acres with a pool, pool house and a fruit orchard and cutting gardens on the grounds. It is listed at $9.5 million. After the jump, playing pool under the circus tent.
