40 Geyser Road

Owned by the iconic Queen of Saratoga, the late Marylou Whitney, and her husband John Hendrickson, this 120+ acre property embodies the beauty and history of Saratoga Springs going back to the 1700’s when the property served as a stagecoach stop. The property dates back to the pre-revolutionary war with rumors of George Washington staying in the building referred to as The George Washington Tavern. In 1926 Cady Hill was purchased by Harry Payne and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. Upon the death of Harry Payne in 1936, Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney purchased the property and Marylou joined him in 1958 as his new bride.

Exquisite and majestic, the timeless and classic elegance of Cady Hill has been the scene of scores of social events and gatherings with family, friends, celebrities and politicians, many of which were hosted in the glass enclosed pool house with a heated pool.

If it is serenity you seek, head to a place of reflection, The Chapel, which was gifted to Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney by Marylou Whitney as a Christmas gift in 1982. This is truly one of a kind, with floors made of rustic boards from an old barn and pews crafted by Shakers of a bygone era.

Experience the impeccably manicured rose gardens where the Marylou Whitney Rose blooms and the fragrance drifts into the 4-story estate. Your stunning foyer features black and white marble floors. Relax in the Saratoga room and enjoy quiet conversation or adjourn to the luxurious formal living room and entertain your guests.

The enclosed North Porch and South Porch are abundant with light as you are surrounded with windows providing gorgeous views of the property year-round. The formal dining room is perfect for lavish dinner parties with hand painted wallpaper, crystal chandelier and hardwood floors. The library is the perfect place to unwind with a good book, glass of wine or cup of tea.

The kitchen has been recently renovated to feature quartz counters, an open layout with a separate eating area with fireplace, wood beams, lots of windows overlooking the property, a vintage Viking 6 burner gas stove with griddle and double oven, as well as a walk-in pantry with a walk-in cooler and a butler’s pantry.

The 2nd floor features two primary suites. The first includes a sitting area, fireplace and French doors leading to the balcony. The primary bath has a Sherle Wagner hand carved marble pedestal sink, bathtub and toilet, as well as Sherle Wagner rose quartz and gold fixtures. You will have ample room for clothes and accessories in the double walk-in closet. The second primary suite includes a tiled shower, rain shower fixture, and seat. The bedroom includes French doors to the balcony.

The 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors include additional bedrooms, bathrooms and a second staircase to the kitchen.

The estate has many additional features and buildings to see, including meticulously maintained gardens and landscaping; fountains; root cellar; office building with attached staff quarters and second floor storage; two single family ranch homes; a maintenance shop; 2 car detached garage and 9 bay detached garage. All of the exquisite furniture on the estate is included in the sale, with the exception of the items in the back gate house.
