What We Love
About BLACK HOLE HOLLOW FARM

  • The sophisticated vibe in a rural setting
  • Tea in the greenhouse with the birds and water
  • The incredibly peaceful feel
  • The gardens on a summer day
  • The miles of wide trails

The serene, gracious setting of Black Hole Hollow Farm in a quiet valley on the border of Vermont and New York is threaded by the White Creek brook, tiered ponds and 30 miles of trails on 948 acres. Picturesque English-style country gardens surround the six-bedroom, 8,143-square-foot main house with the mountains as backdrop. The expansion of the original 1772 farmhouse was designed by Jerome Cerny, noted architect of elegant country homes. The residence is as charming on the inside as it is on the outside. Living room, dining room and downstairs bedrooms all open to the extensive gardens as well as the two-bedroom attached guest house. The recently updated kitchen is a welcoming hub with its AGA stove. The farm has a rich history of owners and guests. Josephine Hartford Bryce, heir to the A&P Supermarket dynasty, a philanthropist, sportswoman and musician, hosted many notable people at the farm including Princess Margaret, Lord and Lady Glenconner, and author Ian Fleming, a frequent visitor who gained inspiration for several of his James Bond books. Just beyond the main house a large greenhouse with octagonal sitting area and Koi pond is nestled among the gardens. There are three post & beam barns, greenhouse, outdoor pool, stocked fishing ponds, sugar house and miles of carriage trails. Black Hole Hollow Farm is just 7 miles from Cambridge, NY, approximately 30 miles to Saratoga, and 26 miles to Bennington, VT.
