About 265 Dans Highway

Majestic, Magazine Featured Home in Highly Desired Neighborhood. Located on a serene country lane in a sought-after pastoral neighborhood, known for its historic estates, sits a magnificent brick manor house with exceptional beauty and design. This stunning property was featured as the cover story for Cottages & Gardens magazine's "Where the Lovelight Gleams", highlighting its unique renovation and decoration in the style of a 1920s David Adler architectural masterpiece. The exterior boasts an impressive allee of London Plane trees, a grand circular gravel driveway, vintage style roofline with corbels and slate roof, copper gutters and copper roofed dormers. Inside, the house features gorgeous custom French doors, transoms, arched doorways, handcrafted fireplace mantles and unique moldings, many of which were obtained from the original architectural catalogs favored by David Adler himself. The property spans over 4 acres and is surrounded by a perimeter fence and custom automated security gate, offering complete privacy. The backyard features an inground pool, mature landscaping, and a large athletic field. Additionally, there is an oversized, two-story barnlike shed, architecturally designed for the property.
