Exclusive and private, this is a historic estate with provenance and grandeur from the Gilded Age and was built in the Great Camp vein with architectural and interior accents throughout. This beautiful waterfront estate was built by inventor Harry Marvin circa 1900, who was also the founder of The Biograph Film Co. of yesteryear fame. On-premise materials were used throughout in this careful construction, chiefly the eponymous field stone that was taken from the property’s grounds and used in the Main Camp and Lodge’s foundation, chimney masonry, and elsewhere. Fieldstone is filled with intrigue and historical significance and was once the home to a Titanic survivor.
