A Country Manor

To complete a unique project, like a Country Manor on Hunts Point, requires an exceptional team of professionals to execute it, and none more important than its general contractor, in this case, Claremont Construction led by the project manager and general partner, Adam Greisz.

The grounds of this Country Manor, created by landscape architect Richard Hartlage, recall the green serenity of an English country estate where a winding drive and footpaths wind under magnificent specimen trees and end at casual gardens. Massive trunks, three-lobed pointed leaves, and cherry-sized seed clusters distinguish trees that frame gracious the west lawns.


A beautiful stone wall surrounds the separate owners and guest's motor courts and unites the manor house with its detached guest quarters that rest above additional garages.

The front door frames the view of the two-story “Entry Hall.” The library is on the left axis, flanked by the staircase. The Grand Parlor juxtaposes the axes, and the dark blue waters of Lake Washington lay straight ahead and beyond. This is a unique home that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.

Give me the luxuries of life and I will willingly do without the necessities.
