Nothing says New England charm quite like a Shingle Style Colonial. The beloved film, “Anne of Green Gables,” celebrated the style of architecture with their dreamy colonials set in Prince Edward Island.  The wood cladding, dormers and welcoming verandas whisk us back to the past — when things were simpler and life was easier. This prized Saratoga estate, set on nearly two prime acres, conveys that same spirit of warmth and tradition. Affectionately known as the “Anne of Green Gables Estate,” the lavish 6,651-square-foot residence presents “one of the rarest opportunities to own two of Saratoga’s finest parcels” all on one level, says listing agent Steve McCarrick. “This masterpiece is beyond the scope of the ‘Platinum Triangle.'”

A dramatic curved driveway provides your first introduction to the main residence. Classically styled interiors fuse exceptional craftsmanship and many notable upgrades throughout.  The gourmet kitchen opens up to a spacious family room. There is a formal dining room featuring large picture windows, for capturing a glimpse of the natural beauty of the outdoors. In fact, nearly every room in the house boasts majestic views.

Ideal for entertaining, large family events or corporate parties, the residence features two beautifully appointed master suites, a private wine cellar, grand ballroom, an office/den for quiet moments and a three-car garage. A separate guest house adds to the allure of this world-renowned estate.

The magnificent grounds are truly a sight to behold as well. Entertain in style with a professional designed tennis court, sparking pool and outdoor kitchen enveloped by vast greenery and meticulously manicured landscaping.
