Drayton Manor on Still Pond Creek

Drayton is a stunning 34+ acre Kent County estate along Still Pond Creek. This manor represents a bygone era of 1938 excellence in this wonderful Georgian Revival Manor House. The approach is graceful and inviting with its tree-lined drive and landscaping designed by Thomas Sears. Outbuildings include a barn, milk house, 3BR tenant house, pool houses, and guest house. The interior appointments of this 12 bedroom residence include hand carved woodwork from 1790, French wall covering hand blocked in 1816, random width oak and mahogany floors, a Wellsford mantel from the 1800’s depicting the Battle of Lake Erie inscribed “We have met the enemy and they are ours”, and a Waterford chandelier circa 1785. The understated elegance of Drayton recalls a time when grandeur was more important than cost. Offered at $3,995,000
