Linwood rests on 12.62 acres of lakefront property. Its current original owner worked closely with renowned architect, Robert Lamb Hart and landscape designers, Mike Ceci and John King of Ceci Brothers Landscaping, to cultivate the homes’ surroundings with an acute respect for the pure and natural splendor of the land.Displaying ever-changing panoply of color, seen in layers of gardens and many beautiful specimen shrubs and trees, the rolling emerald lawns meander amidst lush forest foliage. Stone ledges and steps lead to seemingly endless woodland paths ideal for enjoying Nature at her finest. Nestled in a magical setting with mood lighting and views of the lake, an inviting Pebble Tec in-ground pool with intricately patterned brick patio offers a perfect spot for relaxation or visiting with friends on the veranda of the delightful pool house with everything needed for entertaining and casual dining.
Encompassing 1,500 pristine acres spanning from Greenwich, Connecticut to North Castle, New York, Conyers Farm is an ultra-exclusive enclave that includes some of the nation’s finest private residences. The property was originally owned by Edmund C. Converse, a founder of United States Steel, who consolidated 20 smaller farms into one large piece of property and named it Conyers, after the Old English spelling of his own name. In the 1980’s, the property was subdivided and developed by newspaper magnate, Peter Brant, into less than 100 individual estates ranging from 10 to 20 acres, including his own estate. Today, Conyers Farm is a gated community with 2 gate houses and mobile patrols providing 24 hour security, a world renowned Polo field and grandstand, club house, abundant forested acres and the serenely unspoiled 100- acre Lake Converse. The old Converse stone barn was converted a few years ago into The Brant Foundation Art Study Center. This stunning gallery showcases Brant’s vast collection of contemporary American art and is open by appointment and during polo tournaments. Linwood occupies the second lot beyond the New York state line on Cowdray Park Drive, accessible only through 2 gate houses both located on the Connecticut side.Thus, a Connecticut mailing address is necessary to insure proper delivery of mail which all Conyers Farm New York State residents have.Greenwich Avenue is known for its upscale shopping opportunities and is located about 8 miles south of Conyers Farm.Residents of the town associate themselves, almost exclusively with Greenwich for its broad range of local social, cultural, economic and entertainment opportunities.

At about a mile from Conyers Farm, The Stanwich Club is the closest in proximity to the community and has ranked in the top 100 courses nationally.In addition, easy access to the Merritt Parkway makes the drive to Midtown Manhattan less than an hour drive.A 20 minute commute brings residents of Conyers Farm to the Westchester County Airport, which flies directly to most eastern cities and with connections, to all western cities.
