DESCRIPTION

Orchards End, built in 1929 during the great estates era, this brick and limestone country retreat is a wonderful example of architecture in the grand manner. Designed by New York architect William B. Tubby, his outstanding designs include Waveny House in New Canaan, Dunnellen Hall in Greenwich and the William H. Childs House in Brooklyn. Beginning in 2014, the current owners retained world renowned architect Dinyar Wadia to embark on a 3-year 6 million dollar renovation perfecting the already expansive 10,000 square foot addition completed by the previous owners. Not only was the main residence improved and expanded upon a brand new 4-bedroom guest house, along with a custom designed 5,000 square foot wellness center, a custom pool with spa and new terraces transformed Orchard's End Estate into a true masterpiece. In a recent interview with Dinyar, he stated he believes in today's market this estate would cost in excess of 25 million dollars to replicate the main house alone, excluding land costs, the new 5,000 square foot wellness center and fully renovated guest house. The main residences addition includes a new kitchen, great room, outdoor courtyard, and study. Providing the inspiration for the great room was Castle Duart, located on the Isle of Mull and featured in the 1999 movie Entrapment in which Sean Connery and Catherina Zeta-Jones, playing art thieves, practice their moves for a high-tech heist.
