Grand 1927 Estate with updated home, guest & pool houses on close to two acres!

This tastefully updated gracious English Tudor Revival Period estate is unmatched with its beauty and tranquility. Wrought iron gates open to lead one up an impressive driveway through an arched porte cochere to this striking estate. Custom millwork, intricate architectural detail, Tudor-style archways and leaded and stained-glass windows adorn the structures of this magnificent property. Materials in the home include mahogany from Majorca and stained-glass windows from England.

The original occupant was Academy Award winning actor, Victor McLaglen and his family. They housed a zoo at that time, complete with bears and even a kangaroo. The McLaglens named the estate “Fairhaven”, and its name remains to this day. The main, guest and pool houses are located on a large, expansive lot of approximately two acres.
