THE PHILIP CHENEY MANSION A remarkable fruition of style and elegance with a hint of fantasy to create this luxurious estate known as the Philip Cheney Mansion. This National Historic Landmark is the perfect union of historic architecture and modern luxury. Designed in the Jacobean style by one of the most prominent architects of America's Gilded Age, Stanford White, then later reconstructed in 1928 by the famous designer, Charles Adam Platt. Historians and specialists from around the world were part of the preservation - which took thirteen years and over $12,000,000 to return the 20,000 square foot estate to its original grandeur. Modern amenities of today were strategically installed so as to not disturb the architectural significance of the home. This was not a restoration but rather a preservation maintaining original detail. The features and exceptional level of craftsmanship will take your breath away. From the stunning ceiling panels that once graced a palace in Vienna, original Zuber wall-coverings of the Italian countryside, hand-scraped hardwood floors imported from Italy in 1860, to the authentic fireplaces hand-selected from all over the world, each room exudes character and grace. Pristine gardens and manicured grounds distinguish all 7.5 acres from multiple terraces. Centrally located between America’s biggest metropolises, New York City and Boston! Be part of not only a piece of history, but an established icon in CT.
