Glenn Close is a great actor. No doubt in that. She has been nominated seven times for an Oscar, which proves just how talented she is.
The well-paid actress has lived in the same farmhouse for 30 years and has even hosted her daughter’s wedding there. It is a 10-acre property in Bedford, New York, which is commonly known as Beanfield.
The talented actress is now ready for a change and has listed the house with Ginnel Real Estate for $3.6 million.
The Impeccable Beanfield
The property is situated in the north of the city and has a few structures distributed in the ten-acre land. The main structure on the property is the main farmhouse that was built 109 years ago. There is also a two-story guest house, a barn turned into an office and children’s playhouse.
The main house is 5773 square foot with four bedrooms. The house has a combination of modern and old materials, design, and aesthetics, which gives the house a mixture of new and old decor charm. It has a large porch and hand-painted floors in the main entrance that complements the tone of the entire house décor.
The library has in-built shelf colored in a deep red-orange color. The former dining room is accessed through a set of two doors with a warm color and colorful motif. As reported, the dining room’s interior design was inspired by the dining room in Carl Larsson’s house, a Swedish artist.
The first floor consists of the modern kitchen with exquisite upgrades such as a SubZero fridge, ovens, a Miele dishwasher, a griddle, compacter, and six burners that all surround a large center island. It also has a custom tin ceiling. The family room and the sleek are also on the first floor.
The master suite has a window with a splendid view of the property and is painted a gentle green. It also has an adjoining ‘Boat Room’, which is the name used to refer to the office, sun porch, whirlpool tub, and a walk-in closet. The office has a fridge and wet bar too. The farmhouse is connected to a spa, swimming pool, patio, and motor court.
Not Just a Property on Sale
The property definitely has sentimental value to Close. As expected, considering she has lived in it for 30 years. She even held her daughter’s wedding, Annie Starke, at the grounds.
The wedding was held just last year in a Barbeque-themed service. Annie confessed that the property, which had been her home for the better part of her life, was not just a house.
She mentioned that Beanfield had been very special to the entire family throughout the thirty years as well as friends of the family.
Beanfield is mainly inspirational due to its astounding natural beauty and communal value. The farmhouse is not merely a property on sale, but a state of the art and emotionally valued house. Glenn Close paid homage to her former home by naming her dog Sir Pippen of Beanfield.
