Roundwood Manor is a property that speaks to another era, a time when the greatest luxury was a pastoral retreat away from the cares of the city into the hills of Hunting Valley. One of the most iconic homes in the midwest, the estate was initially designed for OP and MJ Van Sweringen by famed Golden Age architect Philip Small, known for his work on Shaker Square and Higbees Department Store, among many others. From the distinctive Dickens library to the iconic ship drawing room, to the 60-ft tiled indoor swimming pool with a full bar and private dressing rooms, the home was designed for entertaining, relaxation and recreation. Originally constructed in 1924, this architectural triumph showcases the craftsmanship of a bygone era with exceptional decor, period fixtures, and exquisite finishes throughout. Notable examples include the famous stained glass skylight which illuminates the 2-story central hall and delicate hand painted tiles imported from Amsterdam at the turn of the century. Complementing the grand, architectural elements of the home are intimate spaces designed for comfort and quiet reflection. Situated on 7.69 acres in the rolling countryside of Hunting Valley, the home is the centerpiece of Daisy Hill Farms, marked by distinctive white fences, captivating gardens, old growth trees, and a sense of serenity. Roundwood Manor is more than a home; it is a piece of history ready for a new custodian to write the next chapter.
