  • Through the re-working of the gardens the Sterns decided that their house did not allow them to fully enjoy their new grounds, and the original house was subsequently moved and a new one erected in its place starting in 1939. This new house was designed by architects William and Geoffrey Platt whose father, Charles A. Platt, was Shipman’s mentor. The four facades of the house have four different appearances and out each of the four sides there is a different garden. It has 20 rooms on three stories, with original furnishings.
  • Without doubt, one of the most incredible house and gardens I've ever seen. The house is exquisite, complete with all the original furnishings and art, but the gardens are essential to the whole experience, and are world-class. I only wish I didn't live clear across country, or I would unquestionably be back with regularity.
  • Lovely gardens and very interesting house with great art furniture inside! Well worth getting the tour which costs $12. Great tour guide as well!
  • Such a well built lovely home.
  • Lovely gardens and a very nice tour of the house
