This was not a restoration; it was a preservation maintaining every original detail of the estate while painstaking integrating today's modern luxuries. The wall coverings are original Zuber of the Italian countryside. The spectacular ceiling panels once graced a palace in Vienna. The 9 original fireplaces were imported from around the world. Custom mouldings and woodworking were hand-carved from the world’s foremost craftsman. With 13 years of effort from preservation architect Jared Edwards, the Cheney Mansion Estate was returned to its original historic charm. There is no other estate from the Cheney family, or throughout CT, as breathtaking as The Philip Cheney Mansion. The location could not be more desirable equally distant to New York City and Boston. Those looking for refuge will find privacy in your own oasis. There is no need to leave your sanctuary. Deliveries from local shoppes provide invaluable conveniences for your family. Your workspace depends on your fancy. Negotiate deals from the office, library, logia, or terrace. Own a beautiful, peaceful, and private escape.
