In 1895 a grand turn-of-the-century country manse rose an hour from Manhattan in New York’s even-then fashionable Bedford Hills. Embellished in the 1920s by Marion Coffin’s magnificent formal gardens—admired by the likes of Edith Wharton—and transformed in latter years into a palatial European villa, Lionwalk remains an American treasure. The 13 acres bestow everything from splendid French-doored salons and eight fireplaces and eight bedrooms to a classic courtyard, 50-foot pool, tennis court, pond, equestrian complex and—for a final tribute—twin pergolas adorned with wisteria gifted from the Emperor of Japan.
