Property Details

Early 1800 Colonial with manicured gardens and lawns. Pool w/ cabana, tennis court, caretakers cottage, au-pair suite over garage. Large flagstone terrace with screened gazebo and large fieldstone fireplace. Easy access to Rt. 8 and Bradley Int'l airport. Built by a retired captain in Washington's army ? whose marital portrait survives in the living room ? "The Rafters" began its current provenance as the summer home of superstar soprano Alma Gluck and violin virtuoso Efrem Zimbalist, who journeyed there beginning in the 1920s from their New York City residence with their young children. It is where Zimbalist continued daily to master his craft and where, long before starring in 77 Sunset Strip and The FBI, a very young Efrem Zimbalist Jr's chores included banking the coal burning furnace before bed and where, a bit older, he resided while producing the Pulitzer Prize-winning opera, The Consul, on Broadway. "What picturesque migrations these must have been," wrote Efrem Jr. in his memoir, My Dinner of Herbs, of his parents' frequent processions from Manhattan, "complete with full staff and their trappings, Ladd [the chauffeur] in the Rolls Laundaulet heading the pageantry."
