Lord Hill was built in 1870 as a summer ‘cottage’ for a New York family. It was original built in a 2nd Empire / Italianate style and modified sometime in the early 20th century as architectural tastes changed. The house is 3 floors plus a full basement. Rooms surround a central stair shaft extending from the first floor to a skylight on the roof. An architecturally appropriate addition and garage were added in the mid 80s.
The stone house is surrounded by formal gardens and pool area. Beatrix Farrand, a notable landscape architect, is thought to have designed the gardens in the first half of the 20th century. The property is surrounded by scenic farmland and woods.
