Ian Fleming, Famed creator of James Bond, once mused in the guest register of Black Hole Hollow Farm, Lived here like a king - an uninvited one - in fragrant and luxurious solitude a bucolic and timeless sanctuary. This remarkable estate located on 228 verdant acres bordering both state and national forest, offers an unparalleled backdrop to an especially private hideaway. Extensive walking and riding trails are interwoven throughout. The beautiful stone mansion overlooks lush hilled lawns, two tiered ponds and waterfalls. Original house dates from 1772, expanded and designed by the renowned architect Jerome Cerny in the 1930's. The grand living room and downstairs bedrooms open onto the gardens through French doors and master suite provides private access to a poetic walled garden. There are fireplaces throughout, attached guest house, heated greenhouse, barn, cutting and vegetable garden. The estate has entertained a cast of characters including Sir Ian Fleming, spending summers finding inspiration and writing the classics Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger and For Your Eyes Only. Owners were Josephine Hartford Bryce, heiress of A&P, and husband Ivar rumored to be the inspiration for Bond. Easy drive to Albany Int'l Airport, Manchester and Saratoga's thoroughbred racing. Cultural activities of theatre, art, museums and dance nearby. To hike, ride, hunt, farm, fish or drive off-road in the surrounding forest. To find inspiration in a deeply rooted sense of home.
