Including, 11 bedrooms, 7 baths, 6 fireplaces, Staff Wing, Guest Wing, 40' living room, former tobacco barn/garage, pool, outdoor theater and stone lighthouse. The property also comes with a 1740's Colonial Gate House located in an Historic District with 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, 3-bay garage and an updated kitchen. The Main House was designed by noted estate architect S. Alfred Hopkins who designed Laurelton Hall for Louis Comfort Tiffany. Highover was built with local fieldstone and captures magnificent views.

Over the years there were many notable guests such as Albert Einstein, a number of the Lyme Impressionist artists and William Gillette who directed plays such as Alice in Wonderland for local and family children in the outdoor theater. The estate has an embracing, fun and active spirit that combines warmth with a strong sense of peace and contentment.
