On top of a scenic mountain with nearby lakes and within beautiful gate-guarded Tuxedo Park, this extraordinary 15 acre estate becomes available for the very first time. The estate includes “ Loomis Lab” and the adjacent 1930’s modernist guest house designed by Swiss architect William Lescaze. Both important architectural structures are in excellent condition. The large main three story stone and timbered mansion was built in 1901 for Spencer Trask, philanthropist and founder of art colony Yaddo and features Tiffany windows and spectacular vaulted ceilings in many rooms with stunning plaster ceiling and many large fireplaces. The lead windows and architectural details are gorgeous. The modernist house is nearly completely intact with original fixtures. Combined there are 22 plus generous bedrooms and 20 plus baths. The main house is currently 10 legal family units and could easily be converted into one of the great estates of all time with the modernist house as the pool/ guest house and the mansion used as one or more family dwellings. The ultimate family compound. Interior images available upon request. The modernist house is also available on its own on nearly 12 acres for $1,495,000.

This property Is a history and architectural buff’s dream. A recent PBS feature film based on the book by Jennet Conant “The Secret Palace of Science that changed the course of WW II” all took place at this historic property. The two houses have never been offered for sale together before. The modernist house was built by Alfred Loomis for his then-lover to occupy while the mansion was used by scientists to live in and do their experiments which have been credited with winning WWII while Loomis and his wife lived across the lake.
