Original owner Alice DeLamar built a 50-foot swim tunnel from the interior of the house to the Olympic-sized swimming pool in the yard.
The listing agent, Susan Seath, said Stonebrook was a full working farm complete with a menagerie of animals, an apple orchard and vegetable gardens. “She maintained a saw mill and forge across the road on Newtown Turnpike where all the (wrought iron) hardware (and shutter hinges) for the main house and outbuildings was created,” Seath said.
The trappings of DeLamar’s agrarian, yet luxurious lifestyle, await the next owner of Stonebrook, including her Olympic-size in-ground swimming pool complete with a 50-foot swim tunnel.
“Ms. DeLamar had the oversized pool built with a tunnel leading from the basement. It was rumored that this was done so she could swim in the nude without fear of being seen or the need to walk outside,” Seath said.
