Kevin Grangier, who owns LeMoo and The Village Anchor, has been trying to sell his 10-acre estate name Bellewood since 2020 (although there was a two-month period this year when it was unlisted.)
The home’s time on the market says nothing about its beauty, however, because the Colonial Revival style home looks like a museum. And, it’s history matches that aesthetic.
Built in 1869 as a summer home for John Bayless, it was restored in 1929 by its second owner, Charles Ross, with the help of architect Frederick Morgan.
Today, it features a 30-foot fountain imported from Belgium, ancient Greek-style Doric columns, a Gumwood-paneled library and a hand-blocked mural using painted wallpaper from the famous French manufacturer, Zuber & Cie. In addition to a four-car garage, there’s also a three-stall stable.
The kitchen, however, is fully modernized, featuring Viking brand appliances fit for a five-star-caliber chef.
On the grounds, you’ll discover brick and stone terraces and a rebuilt guest cottage.
The listing for this home has taken a price cut since it was first introduced to the market: It is now $3.8 million, down from $4.8 million.
