Finally, spring is in the air
Greenhouses are beautiful glass structures full of life that cultivate plants and help to keep them warm during the cold months. There is a certain allure to these architectural glass wonders. With spring in the air and Architectural Digest’s most beautiful greenhouses around the world to inspire us, we thought we would share a few of our favorite homes with greenhouses.

A riverfront oasis. The property encompasses a beautifully restored c1905 Arts and Crafts residence complete with today’s modern amenities, a new guest house, and thoughtfully designed gardens that overlook the water and conservation land. An original and working Lord & Burnham greenhouse, an imported gazebo, and a marble Italian fountain accent this outdoor oasis.
Black Hole Hollow Farm
Picturesque English-style gardens surround the 6-bedroom main house which overlooks tiered ponds, and a mountain backdrop in this quiet valley between New York and Vermont. Nestled among the gardens, a large (59′ x 22.3′) greenhouse with rose stone inlaid tile, Koi pond, stone walkway and waterfall, includes a post and beam octagonal-shaped sitting area with large windows. Included on this 948-acre farm is a hunting lodge, three more dwellings, equestrian stable, outdoor pool, stocked fishing ponds, sugar house and miles of carriage trails.
Maple Leaf Farm
A winding maple-tree-lined drive leads to this classic New England Farm complex with beautiful mountain views. Located just 10 miles from Hanover, home to Dartmouth College, and walking distance to the village of Lyme, Maple Leaf Farm encompasses 80 acres, and a restored and expanded home with a spacious open floor plan. There is a post and beam barn, tennis court, sugar house, acres of fields, miles of trails, and a large greenhouse ready for the growing season.
Invisible from the road, this Mediterranean-inspired 80-acre estate is impeccably maintained. Located in desirable Charlotte, Vermont in the middle of the Champlain Valley, Casa Tranquilla is aptly named as it enjoys expansive Green Mountain views over numerous sculpture gardens and manicured lawns. Tradition meets comfort in the 6,700+ sq ft Mediterranean-inspired 3-bedroom, 4-bath main residence with indoor pool, greenhouse, private master suite and attached 3-car garage. The grounds include a HarTru tennis court, a 4-stall barn with fenced pasture, a party barn/guest house called “The Lodge” overlooking a pond with a fountain, a sugar bush with 230 taps and sugar house, and walking trails. This property offers so much you just have to see it to experience it.
