Mill Farm, the most iconic property in the bucolic suburb of Dover, was the home of the legendary Miss Amelia Peabody, artist and philanthropist, who infused the horse farm with her unique creative vision. The 40+ acre estate features an antique main house, a 1933 Bauhaus â€œsculptor's studioâ€� and guest house designed by famed architect Eleanor Raymond, and a well-appointed stable complex. The handsome main residence, ca. 1750, overlooks dramatic meadows, paddocks, and pristine woodlands and features elegant period details while maintaining a country feel. Complementing the main house is the magnificent Colonial Garden, with Miss Peabody's sculptures exhibited throughout. The lower property is centered around the courtyard complex, which boasts a main barn containing eight box stalls, caretaker cottages, multiple garages, a tack room, and more. Mill Farm is adjacent to 900+ acres of conservation woodlands with walking and riding trails, but is a mere 30-minute drive from city life.
