When I heard that Daryl Hall (the taller, blonder half of the popular “rock and soul” duo Hall & Oates) was selling his house in Amenia, New York, I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Whatever I imagined, it wasn’t this. It’s a Revolutionary War-era Georgian Colonial that he restored with meticulous attention to historical detail.
Daryl Hall’s Restored Colonial
The house sits on 245 sprawling acres and has 9 fireplaces, “numerous parlors,” a country kitchen, paneled keeping room, and original tavern room.
The restoration, the listing says, has “museum-quality detailings.”
It’s on the market for $16 million.
According to the listing, the estate boasts “four guest houses, an engineered recording studio, gardens, mature groomed and natural woods, a spruce grove, meadows, farm roads, stone walls and walks, terraces, old apple orchards, a neolithic fire pit (created and installed by internationally respected British landscape designer Keir Davidson), and a pond.”
There were actually two old homes from the 1700s that Hall used to create one large one.
BTW, did you know that Daryl Hall produces monthly Internet webcasts that feature various musicians performing here in this house? Visit Live From Daryl’s House to watch one.
