LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- Equestrian farms have been part of Lewisboro's history for hundreds of years. Now, a newly listed home on Gilbert Farm is proving that the town still retains a rural and pastoral identity.
38 Bouton Road, listed by Nancy LaCavalla of Ginnel Real Estate, offers homeowners the chance to experience countryside living, without sacrificing modern style. This nine-acre estate contains multiple barns, horse stables and a riding track along the Waccabuc River. Future residents can take in the country allure while enjoying modern amenities including an updated kitchen and living room.
Lewisboro's farming ties begin in the late 17th century when King William III sold and rented farms of 150 to 300 acres to local residents. At the time, Lewisboro was a hamlet of Cortlandt Manor, but became its own town in 1788 when New York State officially established town boundaries. The farming community thrived through the 18th century, as the open fields grew a wide variety of crops.
Today, Lewisboro still retains a countryside feel with properties that include horse farms, water wells and barns. 38 Bouton Road offers both history and horse enthusiasts the chance to call the pre-Revolutionary farm home. Built in 1725, this Lewisboro home features a two-stall barn with an attached studio apartment and an outdoor writer's cottage with a fireplace.
The property's main house evokes a luxurious feel with towering windows, six fireplaces and a paneled library with a view of the rolling landscape. Additionally, 38 Bouton Road boasts four bedrooms with a private master suite, four bathrooms and over 3,000 sq. ft. of living space. And for residents who don't feel comfortable riding the horse downtown, the property is just a five-minute drive to local shops and schools.
