Mole's Hill Farm. Minutes from bucolic Sharon, Ct. this English-style estate is a true retreat from today's fast-paced world. Centered by a Manor House filled with understated elegance and a sweeping flair of British style, the estate captures the imagination. Detailed pediments, carved fireplaces, custom millwork and cabinetry are appointed throughout every light-filled room, all perfect for entertaining. The grounds by famed English garden designer Penelope Hobhouse and British architect Sir Anthony Denny combine Edwardian symmetry and style in a hillside setting to breathtaking results. Centered by an obelisk folly, framed by a double allee of zelkovas trees, it is flanked by two formal gardens. One features a walled English garden designed with perennial beds and espaliered fruit trees and a greenhouse. The other features a hornbeam hedged garden surrounding a lap pool and a double pavilion with cabana and guest studio. A Russian dacha is tucked in the woodlands. A tennis court, large barn and three bedroom guest house complete the offering. Additional acreage is available.
