Today's estate is another question of taste. The exterior style is a bit of a hodgepodge. The info says it was built in 1993 (designed by Lawrence Stern) but the style seems vintage 1970s to me. It sits on nearly eight acres and has a approximately 12,000 square feet of space. The five-bedroom home has a lot of special features including eight-foot bronze entry doors, a living room with a floating ceiling and a family room that has an onyx fireplace. Other rooms include a media room with acoustical paneling, a library with a two-story-high curved wall of windows and a tall marble fireplace. There is also a private guest suite that has a kitchenette, living room, bedroom and full bath. One of the major charms of this home is its indoor pool area which also includes a sauna, exercise room and changing area on a lower level. The grounds include winding paths and the hidden brook from which the property gets its name. All this and it is listed at $4.45 million. Not a bad price for the square footage and land offered but the style of the house may make it a tricky sell. Interior shots and poor choices in furnishings after the jump.
