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. Take a look!
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.
Did you know that he produces monthly Internet webcasts that feature various musicians performing here in this house? Visit Live From Daryl’s House to watch one.
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.”
Oh, and did I mention the indoor pool?
There were actually two old homes from the 1700s that Hall used to create one large one.

Hall also restored a Georgian home in London and owns the oldest house in the state of Maine, built in 1662.
What do you think? Would you like to live here? Or are you thinking, I Can’t Go for That? Hey, just be glad I didn’t wedge any references to Private Eyes or Maneater into the post, too… 😉
