Believe. Paxhurst, also known as the Hoffman Castle at the top of Tower Hill Road, is now available for the first time in more than 35 years. Designed in 1904 by the firm of Barney and Chapman for William Mitchell Vail Hoffman, the residence is a true landmark, with its tower visible from miles away. The house is in its original condition, and when one enters its two story front hall, with wbfp, the magic begins. Straight ahead is a fabulous square great room with wbfp. To the left is a library and a den, both with wbfp's. On the right is a suite of three entertaining rooms, with 2 wbfp's. On the 2nd and 3rd floors there are several bedrooms with wbfp's. At the top of the house is a breathtaking oversized penthouse room with wbfp and access to rooftop terrace. A lower above ground level opens to extensive grounds. There is nothing like Paxhurst anywhere, and it is true that there is a castle within 40 miles of New York City. Equal Housing Opportunity.
