Sitting at the gateway to Millbrook is Silverbrook Farm, a magnificent example of 18C architecture, which has been home to several illustrious residents throughout its lifetime. Harris Smith of the Smith Brothers cough drop fame, purchased it in 1857, and added many Victorian flourishes which were popular at the time, as well as the west wing which houses the sunroom and above it the master suite. Katherine LaSalle a renowned actress of the stage and early films became mistress of the property when she married Wentworth Bacon, best remembered as a gentleman farmer and Master of the Millbrook Hunt. Wenty Bacon also returned the main house to its Federal roots. This 53 acre property includes the 5000+sf/12 room main house, as well as a guest/caretakers cottage, a barn, a carriage barn, stable, 6 paddocks, as well as a trout stream. For the current owners the past 16 years, have been a labor of love as they have endeavored to return the house to its intended splendor. Now it's time for the next steward to complete the mission.
