An $8.5 million Pound Ridge estate is a weekend retreat for famous art collectors

The longtime Pound Ridge home of art world superstars Sherry and Joel Malin, a 14-acre estate with several houses, an outdoor park with 70-piece sculptures and a museum-quality barn, is now listed for sale for $8.5 million.

Known as Buckhorn and listed with Houlihan Lawrence agents Mary H. Palmerton and Jody Rosen, the artfully landscaped grounds also feature an old 40-tree apple orchard, swimming pool, large pond, extensive flower beds, two two-car garage and rolling lawns and wooded areas.

The Pound Ridge Road property is quite private and borders the 36-acre Henry Morgenthau Nature Preserve.

“It’s extremely beautiful, quiet and peaceful,” says Sherry Malin, an entrepreneur turned options trader. “Everyone comments on the peacefulness of the property.”

A previous owner “recontoured some of the land and added specimens of plants from around the world that fit the native plants that were here,” she says.

Her husband, Joel, a lawyer, bought the property 40 years ago, about a year before his first marriage ended in divorce. In fact, they each unknowingly divorced their first husbands within a week of each other. They knew each other as high school students in the Bronx and reconnected after their divorce.

The pool at a Pound Ridge property is now on the market.  It is the longtime home of noted art collectors Sherry and Joe Malin.

In addition to the main house and art barn, six other structures are on the property, including a large one-room house that is attached to the main structure via a porte-cochere. There are also two guest cottages, a caretaker’s house, a pool house with kitchen and bathroom, and a studio apartment above the garage of the main house.

“It’s like being in Switzerland, where everything is on a scale,” Sherry Malin says. “We were very conscious of keeping the property as it was. Everything works as one.”

When they built the art barn in 2001, for example, they kept part of the building below grade so that it remained on the same scale as the other buildings on the estate.

A Pound Ridge estate owned by famous collectors has come on the market.

Built in 1933, the nearly 5,000-square-foot main house has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. Architectural and design details include a wood-paneled library with a fireplace, hardwood floors, arched doorways, a sweeping central staircase, and two wine cellars (one for whites, one for reds). Artist Tony Matelli’s famous statue “Somnambule” guards the red.

“I believe some houses are built with happiness,” Malin says. “It was a very happy home.”
