This Stunning Arts-and-Crafts Lodge is Worth a Trip to CT

  |  March 6, 2019

Just over the border from Westchester County lives this c.1904 Craftsman lodge in Stamford, CT, listed for $1,349,000.

The front gates call it the “Orient Lodge,” but we’re calling it simply gorgeous. This next-level log cabin sits on over two acres of land about an hour from NYC, shaded by towering pine trees, with a welcoming front porch…

The Hours in CT went into the detail about the property’s restoration and historic designation about a decade ago, reporting that the lodge has been home to six families over the past century. None of its owners altered the home in any structural way. In other words, it’s got good bones, as they say.

The house went through extensive restorations a few years back, bringing back to life the 5,657-square-foot interior’s many Craftsman details like hand-carved panels, wood trim, moldings, stained glass, and river rock fireplaces on the first floor.

While this timber lodge is a pristine antique, there’s nothing old-fashioned about a fully-equipped kitchen with center island range, duel ovens, and pantry.

The main house includes four bedrooms – one of which is a master suite – and a loft.

According to the listing, the 2.26-acre property’s carriage house/cottage may have been a saw mill built in 1825, then converted to a carriage house with stables. The stables are still on the lower level, and, above the two-car garage and workshop, there’s a 2,000-square-foot apartment.

Prepare to be blown away by the beautifully-landscaped grounds, complete with stone walls and pond.

The Orient Lodge is in the Long Ridge Village Historic District in North Stamford, convenient to Bedford, Pound Ridge, Armonk, and the Long Island Sound shore.
