Ace Frehley’s Former Estate For Sale – $ 1,095,000

ROCK STAR’S FORMER ESTATE Listed by Ryan Cornell at William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty. Renovated and Secluded, and totally COOL!  Cross through a pillared iron gate, over a stone bridge and small stream, and up a windy drive, to a circular courtyard with a 3000 gallon Water Garden and babbling waterfall. Beyond the sweeping lawns, the property is surrounded by woods and preserved land and a seventy acre vegetable farm next door. Akin to something out of “Architectural Digest”, the home is utterly breathtaking, with striking angles, wide open spaces, and lots of glass and light inside. With 6400 sf of finished space, it’s great for entertaining. Yet, it’s great for casual, daily living, with bedrooms on one side of the house, and entertaining and living space on the other, and a playroom downstairs. The attached recording studio that was built by the legendary Ace Frehley of the iconic band KISS (and, rumor has it, used by Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead), has been converted. You can still use it as your personal music studio. Kids can produce their own shows, with stage lights. Or, there’s room for five cars (7 total), if you’re a collector. There’s even space for Yoga mats, a punching bag, and a climbing rope. It’s the “Ultimate Trophy Barn”.

This is a high-efficiency and high-tech home. You’ll find spray foam insulation in ceilings and walls. Nearly all the lights in the house are LED. Skylights are solar powered, and close automatically when it rains. Of course there’s radiant floor heat. All HVAC equipment has been replaced with top-of-the-line mechanicals. You can even use your smartphone to control the lights and the five zone Sonos audio system. The house is solidly built, with extra thick hardened concrete exterior foundation walls, interior concrete walls in the basement, and steel beams. Some of the concrete walls are two-feet thick, with a poured concrete ceiling. The Lower Level features a Media Room with an automatic retractable theatre size screen, HD projector and powerful surround sound. Plus, a colorful playroom, a separate office and even a Homework or Music Room. There’s a Generator and a transfer switch (of course). And, if you’re interested, you could even keep the luxury Chicken Coop, that has an automatic door that opens at dawn, closes at dusk, and a solar powered exhaust fan and electric fence.
