Cedar Knoll was built in 1935 for James Clawson Roop, budget director under President Hoover. Approached from gently winding Greenley Road, the house sits majestically on a knoll amidst 3.6 acres. The slate mansard roof, generously proportioned rooms, herringbone oak floors, and architectural detail reflect exceptional quality and craftsmanship. Property assets include a seven car heated garage with five bays, CAT5 trading capabilities, a 20 x 40 swimming pool, and a stone terrace overlooking walking trails, adjacent stream, and seven acres of land trust. An addition designed by New Canaan modern architect John Black Lee in 1963 created a generous family room and kitchen area directly adjacent to a private guest apartment.
