Property Description

Destiny awaits the new custodian of what is undoubtedly one of the most heavenly places on earth. This soul-stirring, once-in-a-lifetime offering combines a total of 15.19 pastoral acres with the associated residences and outbuildings corresponding to #41, #45, & #49 Dorethy Rd. Included is the pre-Civil War barn, moved from Newtown in 1980, that has served as the inspirational worship space for The Benedictine Grange. Father John Giuliani acquired the entire parcel in 1977 to establish a monastic community of brothers. Instead, it was destined to become a renowned spiritual center, visited by worshippers from around the world. As Fr. John was quoted in the NY Times, “This has become what people wanted it to be: a place where they could worship contemplatively in a monastic setting and where they can reflect and feel closer to God and to the earth.” The compound includes the original home (1,993 sf, 3-6 BR, 2 BA); cottage (1,516 sf, 1 BR, 2BA) w/meditation room & studio; horse stables; sheds; and a majestic setting w/specimen trees, flowering gardens, & the “Sacred Labyrinth” – larger than the labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral that was its inspiration. In 2005, 8.11 acres were sold to a devout church family who commissioned the late architect Victor Lazzaro to design & build the magnificent neighboring home (9,670 sf, 5BR, 6/2 BA). As fate would have it, it is time for all associated parties to move on, resulting in this joint offering opportunity. Inquire for further details.
