Longfield Farm has been one of my favorite residences ever since I first stumbled upon it nearly five years ago. Nestled in the hills of Dutchess County, New York, the Federal-style home sits on over 400 acres and boasts an interior is as showstopping as the exterior. The mix of English and American antiques and Gil Schafer’s ingenious ability to give a new build, the aesthetics and charm of an old home is spectacular. Longfield boasts both Neo-Classical and Neo-Victorian elements, an impressive collection of art and antiques, and of course architectural prowess that can only be delivered by an architect of Schafer’s prowess. Oh and did I mention the ground are to die for?
The images in this post are a combination of ones from G.P. Schafer’ s website and Architectural Digest and if you love the estate as much as I do, you should definitely treat yourself and read both full tours. This home is the fifth residence the owner has commissioned Schafer to build…talk about house goals! If you are not familiar with Longfield Farm, I have a feeling that it is about to become a new favorite and if you know it as well I do, it is definitely worth another look through. I find that every time I revisit the pictures, I discover something new and enchanting that I hadn’t noticed before.
Happy reading and happy Wednesday!
