    Finally a rustic-style house where the theme has been used both inside and out. I half expected to see a lodge exterior with a Louis XIV interior, but thankfully no.

    Overall, I absolutely love it. The interior is beautifully detailed, classic, and comfortable; it actually looks like someone lives here. This is definitely one of my favorite houses ever on the blog. All that said, the one thing I would want to change is the garages; I wish they had been moved to the opposite wing, away from the main entrance. But, I could live with that.

    It seems like a lovely home. I bet it is especially beautiful around the holidays. However, I don’t think I could live in this for half of the year or even a full season. This looks great if you want to escape for a couple of weeks at a time.

    I think Daniel and Grrrowler hit a bullseye with their statements. The only thing it needs to make it perfect is a portrait of Jennifer Anison and Me over the fireplace.

    This house is most certainly one of the BEST ever presented on this site! Thank you, Kenny! I would feel at home here, almost anytime. It is so believably un-ostentatious. Magnificent home, gardens, and site. 🙂

      That is so mean! Probably true with regards to any/all of us, but still mean. 😉

    As for the estate: Absolutely one of the finest postings — if not THE finest — listed here. In keeping with the beauty of place and setting is the ambiance — not just the physical ambiance, but the whole motif…adding a piece of man-made beauty to a naturally beautiful — stunning, really — site. The psychological beauty of the owners’ attitude — to add beauty to beauty — is enhanced by their deep-seated desire to add to their entire community…to give back. One can hope only that if it is sold, a new owner will continue in those ideals.

    As for Aniston: All she would do is change several things — usually the most compelling and beautiful –because they’re “not me.” And then she’d sell the estate…she changes homes as frequently as she changes boyfriends.

    Grrrowler, i’m sorry for being mean, but she won’t take my calls either
    *sob* who was that dip-shit who divorced her for being “boring”? I mean c’mon she’s all grown-up now, so not into “clubbing” etc., Just like that woman who divorced Sir Paul…for being a fuddy-duddy. Some people are SO immature! And Jen, if you’re listening, you can drop-by ANY time…it’d be fine by me! 🙂

    This takes its place firmly in my favorite homes ever posted on this site, which seems to echo several other commenters’ sentiments. The scenic approach to the home and the feel of many of the indoor spaces in this home reminded me strongly of the Biltmore Estate, although on an admittedly VERY different scale. This is just absolutely beautiful in pretty much every way. The only thing that raised my eyebrows was that it only has a 3-car garage, but really, when you’re talking about a home this breathtaking, it’s completely forgivable. Considering the surroundings and general feel of the place, I’d fill that garage with a 1954 Bentley R-Type Continental, a 1997 Land Rover Defender 110 and a 2012 Jaguar XJL Supersport. Exotic sports cars would be missing the point.

      I would guess that it only has a 3 car garage because this home is used by the owners, Bob and Cathy Fisher for a few weeks in the summer. Their main home is in Sea Island, GA.

    Okay Mr. Bertram, this is the SECOND GREAT HOME to be featured here, ask Daniel or Kenny which was the FIRST, if you don’t already know. As well it was Jen’s boyfriends who changed NOT Jen! [ hint- it starts with a C ]

    NOVA Ben, great comment! This home is a masterpiece. It will stand for hundreds of years…did you notice that the stone-masons explained why they didn’t need any “caulking” or cement…the stones are cut so precisely that there’s NO ROOM for caulking. <3

    Wow…there seems to be a concenscious ….. most everyone loves this house is much as I do. I thought I was a little biased because I live in north carolina, but I do know this area and it is so gorgeous up there. I think you would make for a great hideaway retreat. Thanks for posting

    This is a magnificent home and estate. 50 acres of perfection. I personally would build a 15 – 20 car garage somewhere on the estate, making sure to match the style of the house. I’m a huge car guy, with a wide range of styles. 20s – 40s Caddy’s, Cord’s, Packards, Duey’s, Lincolns, Bentley’s, Gatti’s etc..but also old and new school Jags, Cedes, Ferrari’s, Lambos, and Porches. I don’t feel the type of car you drive needs to match the home you live in. There’s plenty of room on this estate to hide your car garage out of site. I’d take this place in a heartbeat.

    You are so right, Hunter! Just build some more garages, if necessary. And they probably would be necessary because you have to account for full-time staff in this sort of property.
    p.s. Bertram: for the answer to my “skill testing question” Google CHILTERN. ;), and NOVA Ben + Hunter, I agree. Lets not nit-pick about the garages…this is one MAGNIFICENT ESTATE!!! 😉

    Oh i do go on and on…this house is Architectural ART! Fully expressed.
    Jen Aniston is one of a VERY FEW women who have aged well. Susan Sarandon is another. Life is not kind to women. George Clooney can attract young ( eye-candy) women. But just try to list older female actors who can score young attractive men! Your list will be short. 😉

      Christy Brinkley is 58 years old and has not aged a day in the last 35 years. To hell with Jen, Christy is just as beautiful and she is too old to get pregers. The house is nice too.

    It’s a very nice home, both inside and out, and the build quality looks great, but I wouldn’t rank is as “the” nicest home ever shown here. Maybe among the top ten nicest homes though. But there are some FANTASTIC homes shown on here. I would say that for the type of home this it though, it really nails it.

    Definitely a nice home!! And easily in the top 10 or so homes that I’ve seen here at HOTR! Great job Kenny! 🙂

    For my own personal tastes I think it’s a little on the dark side, but that’s really my only complaint. That might also just be the photos and the fact that all the lighting is very dimmed. Especially inside, there’s an obvious European gothic/medieval influence and for me it’s kind of depressing.

    Other than that, I really enjoy this home! It does look VERY comfortable. I can appreciate the thoughtful design and the time it must have taken to construct this house! Even though the interior isn’t quite my style, I LOVE the exterior and the grounds! Oh man!! SO beautiful! Like others have said, I love how it nearly blends in with its surroudings. With 50 acres, there’s plenty of room to run and plenty of space between you and your neighbors. I’m absolutely in love with that stone bridge structure. The website says “Enter a World Apart”. That’s so true with this estate.

    The property and its gardens are beautiful in the summer too. The interior is flawless. As for stone manors in the woods-this ranks #1.
