In 1864, railroad magnate Samuel Sloan Sr. and his wife Margaret commissioned an estate in Garrison, New York to serve as their country home. Originally known as Oulagisket or Lisburne Grange, the 16-acre property consisted of an enormous main house plus beautiful gardens and vistas by renowned landscape architect Fletcher Steele. In fact, some garden “ruins” still exist, as does the iconic swimming pool grotto. Today, the estate consists of a grand, Greek-Revival facade, six bedrooms, an outdoor dining pavilion, and a spa complete with a steam room, sauna, and saltwater hot tub (to name a few amenities). After undergoing a renovation in 2014 that designated the residence a Passive House, it’s now on the market for $11,250,000.
