Description

The Hollys rises enviably high above the banks of the North Elkhorn, offering verdant vistas from a regal vantage above. Noted for its elegant simplicity, the estate's bold portico & pedimented entablature with dentils displays a strong yet refined manner. Built in 1845, the home is often attributed to architect John McMurtry. It may have incorporated an even earlier (possibly Federal) 19th century structure into its construction as a wing. In 1939, it was christened ''The Hollys'' after a thoughtful restoration led by architect Robert McMeekin. Contemporary materials were sourced extensively, including brick from the Cherry Spring Presbyterian Church of Newtown (also built by McMurtry) as well as mahogany woodwork featuring a Grecian motif of ''Pan & the wood nymphs'' for the library. Later owners shared the affinity for the home's stewardship, respectfully maintaining its character while artfully adapting it for modern use. Today, the residence anchors the farm's manageable thirty-two acres. A well-appointed guest house boasts a first-floor primary suite among its three bedrooms, while a converted tobacco barn contributes equine utility with a fine tack room.
