Called Brook Farm, today it’s a 16-acre, resort-like spread with a saltwater pool, a pond, running trails and a barn with second-story guest quarters. The 7,506-main house is an elegant ramble of white clapboard with one of the prettiest back-to-front entrance halls we’ve seen: It’s got its own hearth, sitting area and grand double staircase.
