North Wales is steeped in history, rich in appointments, and unique in every way. From the minute one enters this splendid property, there is a tremendous sense of dominion, privacy, and tradition. The manor home, carriage house, and stables are surrounded by a vast estate of 1,471.71-acres consisting of pine ridges, hardwood forests, rolling fields and pastures, and lush formal gardens. The terrain provides varied and interesting topography with scenic views of the neighboring countryside and surrounding mountains.
Surrounded by large, private estates and the Whitney State Forest, North Wales enjoys a strong sense of protection and serenity. Ample pasture and cropland provide numerous opportunities for cattle, horses, viticulture, or other agricultural pursuits. Great Run and two other streams meander through the center of the property, and several ponds attract waterfowl and offer excellent fishing. The varied and healthy habitats of the land also provide a plethora of seasonal sport shooting and game hunting.
The nearly 1.5-mile drive winds from the gate house through tree-lined meadows, over stone bridges, and past stately hardwoods to an opening that offers the first glimpse of the manor house. At the crest of a hill, a stunning two-story carriage house is situated at the beginning of a grand and double allée of maple trees that lead for approximately a quarter mile to the circa 1776 stone mansion.
