Built around 1880 in the style of a classic carriage house, the five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom estate was owned by Wallace in the 1950s and 1960s. Located along the Hudson River and around 20 minutes from New York City, the hamlet of Snedens Landing has served as an ultra-exclusive refuge for celebrities for decades. Throughout the years, celebrities like Ava Gardner, Laurence Olivier and Kirk Douglas came to the property at 11 Lawrence Lane as guests.

The area is renowned for its privacy, as each house in the enclave is surrounded by rolling hills, landscaped grounds and trees, and views of the Hudson River.

“It’s an area that has always had this association with celebrities because it feels like it’s a million miles away from the city, but it’s actually 14 miles from the George Washington Bridge and 25 to 30 minutes to Broadway from the community,” Richard Ellis, the Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty broker representing the property, told Inman by phone.
