In 1928 George La Branche built High Holt, his 8,031 sf manse, on his 1800 acre estate at the foothills of the Berkshires by gathering 'the best of everything' from neighboring farms -pinewood boards, beams from old barns and superior stone gratify the estate. Enter the main hall past the south wing, which features a master suite w/ sitting room, past a 2nd ground floor master suite to a vast great room featuring an enormous stone fireplace and solarium, through the formal dinning room, kitchen & butler's pantry to the paneled gun room where luminaries such as Walt Disney, Babe Ruth and Edna St Vincent Millay (whose signature remains on the wall) enjoyed cocktails. High Holt boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 full baths, 6 fireplaces and a private staff quarters with kitchen, living room and 3 bedrooms.
