$8.5 million Pound Ridge weekend estate for famous art collectors

The long Pound Ridge home of art world superstars Sherry and Joel Mallin, a 14-acre property with several homes, a 70-piece outdoor sculpture park and a museum-quality art barn, is now listed for sale for 8.5 million dollars.

Known as Buckhorn and listed with Houlihan Lawrence agents Mary H. Palmerton and Jody Rosen, the expertly landscaped grounds also feature an old 40-tree apple orchard, a swimming pool, a large pond, extensive flower beds, two two-car garages and rolling lawns. and forested areas.

The Pound Ridge Road property is quite private and borders the 36-acre Henry Morgenthau Nature Preserve.

“It’s incredibly beautiful, quiet and peaceful,” says Sherry Mallin, an entrepreneur-turned-options trader. “Everyone comments on the quietness of the property.”

A previous owner “recontoured some of the land and added specimen plants from around the world that matched the native plants that were here,” she says.

Her husband, Joel, a lawyer, bought the property 40 years ago, about a year before his first marriage ended in divorce. In fact, each of them unknowingly divorced their first spouse within a week of each other. They had known each other as high school students in the Bronx and then reconnected after their divorce.

In addition to the main house and art barn, six other structures are on the property, including a large one-room house that is attached to the main structure via a porte-cochere. There are also two guest cottages, a caretaker’s house, a pool house with a kitchen and a bathroom, and a studio apartment above the main house’s garage.

“It’s like being in Switzerland, where everything is on scale,” says Sherry Mallin. “We have been very conscientious about keeping the property as it was. Everything works perfectly.”

When they built the art barn in 2001, for example, they kept part of the building below grade so it would remain on the same scale as the other buildings on the estate.

Pound Ridge property owned by renowned collectors has gone on the market.

Built in 1933, the nearly 5,000-square-foot main house features four bedrooms and five bathrooms. Architectural and design details include a wood-paneled library with a fireplace, hardwood floors, arched doorways, a sweeping central staircase and two wine cellars (one for whites, one for reds). Artist Tony Matelli’s famous “Sleepwalker” statue preserves that red.

“I believe some houses are built with happiness,” Mallin says. “This has been a very happy home.”
