New York sculpture park with pool, multiple home listings for $8.5 million

This address is a celebrity in the art world in its own right.

World-renowned contemporary art collectors Sherry and Joel Mallin have launched their Westchester estate. The peaceful Pound Ridge estate is listed by Houlihan Lawrence’s Mary H. Palmerton and is asking for $8.5 million.

“The overwhelming, unsolicited comment is made day in and day out by people saying, ‘It’s so strangely quiet here,'” Sherry told Mallin Crain’s of a shared reaction to the 14 acres she and her husband called home for some have 40 years. “It just exists. Everyone feels it.”

The grounds’ features are impressive on paper: It has eight buildings in all, including a 1930s main house and a 9,200-square-foot, museum-quality “Art Barn” exhibition space — as well as an underground pool, pool house, lake, and apple orchard. There are separate red and white wine cellars, the red being guarded by artist Tony Matelli’s ‘Sleepwalker’ statue, a caretaker’s house, two guest cottages and a garage topped by a studio apartment.

Add to that the fact that the address is known in certain circles for its 1,000+ piece collection of works by a variety of 20th-century masters, and the listing far surpasses most other upstate retreats.

The two-story Art Barn has “all the specifications needed to create a museum,” Sherry noted, and as such the couple have used it to display their collection of work by the likes of Sol LeWitt, Richard Serra, Anish Kapoor and Andy to house Goldsworthy . The landscaped area of ​​the property also served as a kind of private open-air museum with almost 70 sculptures. (By comparison, the Storm King Art Center grounds contain approximately 115 sculptures.)

The Mallins plan to disassemble their collection with the sale of the property, either donating, selling or giving away most of it – but leaving the property’s buyer a Goldsworthy work, with the possibility of more.

“My dream is that there’s this imaginary person who loves art and sculpture, who buys all the sculpture and just walks away from it,” Sherry told Crain’s. “But I’m also practical. Art will live on no matter what we do because it has a longer lifespan than we do.”
