Lee’s Hill, an Irvington landmark, is being offered for sale for the first time. Lee’s Hill, the original home of the Stephens family, who owned and operated the Tides Inn for many years, was lovingly and painstakingly built in 1952. This true antebellum ‘mansion’ graces the beautiful grassy knoll, known as Lee’s Hill overlooking meandering Carter’s Creek. Having spent many years in New Orleans, the Stephens chose one of that area’s famous architects (Douglas Vincent Feret) and set about to create a masterful and spacious home for their family.
Louisiana cypress, which could not be obtained locally was brought in by rail to West Point and then trucked in to the site. The massive front columns, woodwork and stairways are all beautifully executed. The main home consists of 4,876 square feet. There is a studio as well with 724 square feet featuring a bedroom, bath and work area. All four bedrooms in the main home are ensuite.
The first floor boasts waterside living room, dining room and sun room with wet bar, all commanding exquisite views of Carter’s Creek. An updated kitchen, library with dry bar and elegant foyer, center hall and side entrance round out the first floor. Porches abound on both floors enjoying glorious views and breezes. The property, consisting of 3.18 acres and 350′ of shoreline, is adorned with beautiful mature trees and landscaping, a 40′ long gunite pool, pier and boathouse. The entrance to Lee’s Hill is breathtaking with massive magnolias that canopy the graceful entrance.
THIS IS TRULY ONE OF THOSE OPPORTUNITIES THAT IS RARE TO FIND. CONVENIENTLY LOCATED IN ‘DOWNTOWN’ IRVINGTON, LEE’S HILL IS A TESTAMENT TO TIME AND HISTORY AND THE REFLECTION OF A GENTEEL ERA.
