We invite you to enjoy the picturesque setting of Glen Farm, the last 100 acres of what was
once a 700-acre manorial farm whose settlement dates back to the 1600's. Its classical stone barns from the Gilded Age and its park-like grounds were rehabilitated by Keating, and thrive today as an equestrian & community recreational property, and home of the Polo Series.
