Farmhouse Friday: There Is a Llama House and Two-Acre Pond at Twin Silo Farm
Well that does it, we’ve seen it all now.
To speak the truth, we can’t believe it didn’t come to our attention before when we first wrote about Twin Silo Farm. Sure, it has a full-scale hedge maze, two-acre pond with a fountain, and a “resort-like” pool and spa–but a llama house? And not just your average run-of-the-mill llama barn, but one designed in the style of Polish country homes. How do we respond to this? More importantly, how do we respond to this: “[it] is now a gorgeous home to the beautiful white swans.” Oh, swans now? Next it will be geeps.
The massive estate, which dates back to 1710, also boasts a tennis court and several gardens to its name. It spans 100 acres in total and the listing says the Gatsby-esque wonderland has plenty of room for up to 100 cars (think, weddings) or even a helipad, in case you’re “in a rush.” We’re not in a rush. We just really want a helipad.
Its restored bank barn, built in 1781 and apparently the largest of its kind in the entire state, has double silos wrapped in stone, hence the property’s name. Inside the lavish main residence, original mahogany wide-plank floors, intricate marble and millwork, and a slew of fireplaces inhabit the space. The master suite now has a two-story addition consisting of two bathrooms. Don’t miss the incredible gallery.
