Daryl Hall's Flint Hill, Estate of the Day
I wouldn't have pegged this as a musician's home but the Real Estalker Mama found out that this restored colonial belongs to Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates. The estate known as Flint Hill is near the town of Amenia, New York and spans over 245 acres with views of the Catksills.
Hall created one massive home by combining two homes, one from 1770 and one from 1786 (the 1786 Oliver Hanchett House from Suffield, Connecticut and the nearby 1770 Bates Tavern of East Granby, Connecticut) which were disassembled, moved from their original locations and combined on the home. The homes are joined by a huge great room that features a catwalk. The large home has over 24 rooms including a huge country kitchen, numerous parlors, sitting rooms and libraries and the original tavern room. The decor keeps fairly strictly to the Colonial aesthetic which is gently augmented with treats like an Aga range in the kitchen. But overall the home reminds me of the ones in M. Night Shyamalan's The Village, too perfect to feel authentic. In fact there's room enough for a whole village here should you want to escape from the modern world entirely. The property includes several guest houses, a music studio and an indoor pool as well as woods, meadows, farm roads, stone walls and walks, terraces, old apple orchards, a neolithic fire pit and a pond. It is listed at $16 million with Klemm Real Estate.
