The estate’s main manor house spans about 17,000 square feet, according to the listing.
Built around 1900, it has eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, an Olympic-size indoor swimming pool and a slew of period details including imported marble, limestone, onyx, hand stained glass.
The property has formal living and dining rooms, a library, a conservatory and a breakfast room.
The grounds also include four guesthouses, an outdoor pool, a green house, two horse barns, manicured gardens, private lakes, wooded trails and a hedge maze for children.
The estate was formerly owned by the Sulzberger family, the longtime publishers of the New York Times.
According to the listing, the current owners restored and upgraded the property with over $30 million in improvements and doubled the size of the manor house.
Lisa Simonsen, Nancy Strong and Stacey Oestreich of Douglas Elliman have the listing.
