楼盘简介

The allure of Black Hole Hollow Farm goes far beyond its pastoral beauty. For a time, it was the summer retreat and place of inspiration for Ian Fleming, the legendary British novelist and creator of Agent 007 — James Bond.

A LEGENDARY PROVENANCE
Back in the ‘50s, the farm's then-owner, A&P heiress Josephine Huntington Hartford Bryce, used the estate as her base during the summer season at Saratoga. Her husband, John Felix Charles Ivar Bryce, was a former British intelligence officer and close friend of Ian Fleming. Together they entertained royalty and celebrities including HRH The Princess Margaret and Jacqueline Kennedy. But it is Fleming who may linger as the presiding spirit of Black Hole Hollow Farm. It was here that he wrote the Bond novels Diamonds Are Forever and Goldfinger.

THE PROPERTY
Set within a quiet valley on the New York–Vermont state line, the historic 948-acre Black Hole Hollow Farm is an idyllic landscape threaded by the White Creek, with tiered ponds, open pastures, and miles of wide private trails, bordering a 5,000-acre forest preserve. At its center is an 18th-century farmhouse surrounded by picturesque English gardens. Equestrians will appreciate the estate's four barns, riding arena, fenced paddocks, and its prized location: 30 miles from Saratoga Race Course, home to America's oldest thoroughbred race, the Travers Stakes.

Built circa-1772, the original colonial farmhouse was updated by noted country house architect Jerome Cerny. It spans 8,143 square feet with six bedrooms; elegant reception rooms, all with fireplaces; an office; and fully updated gourmet kitchen. Complementing the main house are four delightful dwellings: the lodge and cottage, each with three bedrooms; the two-bedroom Federal House; and the Milk House, a one-bedroom home. Other superb amenities include a maple syrup production facility, a greenhouse with a koi pond, an outdoor swimming pool, and three stocked ponds.

THE WRITER IN RESIDENCE
Ian Fleming often stayed in guest quarters known as the Yellow Room. From there he would take long treks into the woods surrounding the estate and return at eventide. In an old guest register, Fleming once wrote, Lived here like a king — an uninvited one — in fragrant and luxurious solitude. Black Hole Hollow Farm still exudes that unique serenity that drew Fleming back time and again. The property awaits its next chapter to inspire future generations as it did a legend of the past.
