Greenhouses and conservatories have long been a luxury amenity in our area, and not just because their preeminent manufacturer was headquartered in Westchester. Whether as gateways to year-round planting or simply uplifting spaces to relax, they’re a blossoming addition to any home. Here are just a few of these brilliant glass boxes of growth and vitality from our current listings:
BEDFORD HILLS | 29 Wood Road
A locavore’s delight, Amba Farms plays host to not only a thriving organic greenhouse, but to mature fruit orchards, raised-bed vegetable gardens and cold frames, and a blooming parterre. And, it’s just as bright and airy inside with ample windows and French doors galore.
GREENWICH | 33 Meadow Wood Drive
A true extension of the living space, the historical conservatory that graces this European-style dwelling doubles as a vibrant and inviting sitting room. Once part of the Nancy Reynolds estate, it overlooks sparkling Byram Harbor and enjoys endless privacy in the exclusive Belle Haven Association.
CHATHAM | 99 Shaker Museum Road
A quintessential farm-to-table lifestyle awaits at the Old Chatham Sheepherding Inn with vast fenced pastures, a barn complex, creamery, and dairy, and a spacious greenhouse. Previously a Relais & Châteaux property, the main house dates to 1790, and offers six enchanting guest suites.
DARIEN | 170 Ridge Acres Road
The glorious greenhouse joined to this sprawling brick and slate chateau offers a sunny and intimate spot for a morning cuppa. Though a thing for horticulture will likely rub off on anyone who spends even a bit of time within its crystal-clear walls.
MAMARONECK | 1019 Greacen Point Road
Flanking the bucolic English-style stone residence of this Orienta mini-estate isn’t just a fabulous sunroom, but an all-business greenhouse reached from the outside courtyard. Your plantings will have wide views across the 1.8-acre property down to the waterfront, where a dock awaits.
