A Piece of Art History - Squirrel Hall
Art History lives here. Former home and art studio of American Abstract Expressionist painter Conrad Marca-Relli, this rustic circa 1800's compound sits near The Pollock-Krasner House, and rolling pastures and farmland. Affectionately named Squirrel Hall, the main house boasts an addition of a beautiful saltbox barn gifted from art patron Adelaide deMenil. Surrounded by meadow and preserve in the rear of the property, this place offers magnificent landscape views. A wonderful retreat replete with history; Marilyn Monroe rented while married to Arthur Miller, and Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock gathered frequently. The living room has barn beams, fireplace, and clerestory windows with stairs leading to the en-suite master bedroom overlooking the fields. The sitting room also with a fireplace, built by Conrad himself, has the most beautiful authentic oval window and a floor-to-ceiling bookcase. This is a one-of-a-kind property and is the first time being offered for sale in over 60 years.
