A Laurel Hollow home with extensive renovations and a rich history tied to Tiffany & Co. is on the market for $2.349 million. The estate, which includes a 5,500-square-foot main house and a cottage, was built in 1938 and has four en suite bedrooms plus a greenhouse.
Recent renovations include two new boilers, new solid copper leaders and gutters, a new electric panel, new structural lighting, new driveway, new in-ground sprinkler and a new well and water pump, says Elena D'Agostino of Signature Premier Properties, who is co-listing the property with Joyce Mennella.
In 1902, Louis Comfort Tiffany, the artist son of the founder of Tiffany's, constructed a large country estate on 580 acres along Laurel Hollow Road called Laurelton Hall, she says.
During the early 1930s, Tiffany sold off parcels to friends -- and one of those was Hamilton Fish Armstrong, a professor at Princeton University. He built the current dwelling and named it Box Hill.
In 1999, the property was subdivided, with the main house and subsequent additions maintaining about four acres, D'Agostino says.
