Built in the
grand era of the 1920's by a New York surgeon for use as a summer estate, Applegate is set
amid towering pines and manicured lawns.
Rose gardens, perennial beds and
mature apple trees cover nearly six acres of the property.
Once inside the iron gate, the circular drive leads to the dramatic two
story, pillared port-cochere of this Georgian colonial. Upon entering the spacious foyer,
you will find Applegate tastefully decorated with plush oriental carpets, fine antiques,
and quality reproductions throughout.
Each evening, wine and cheese are offered to guests in the libraried
living room where you can linger, listening to soft, classical music in front of the
fireplace, or perhaps, play the baby grand-piano. For those who prefer, there is a large
sun parlor complete with TV/VCR and a classic video library, jigsaw puzzle in process and
game table for late night or rainy afternoon escapes.
A curved stairway leads you upstairs
to Applegate's six guest rooms, each one decorated as distinctively and impeccably as the
Besides each having their own private bath, guests will find fresh flowers in each guest room, along with a crystal decanter of brandy and Godiva chocolates.
Each of the guest rooms are centrally air conditioned. During the cooler months, guests will enjoy the cozy fireplaces found in four of the guest rooms.
At the same time, in each room, guests can snuggle under a warm feather comforter and experience the tranquility Applegate provides.
The Carriage House has three more rooms;
two with king size beds, fireplaces, wet bars, Jacuzzi tubs, TV/VCR and private patios. A two-bedroom apartment is also available for
those desiring even more privacy.

Breakfast is served in the fireplaced dining room where the
glow from the warm fire makes the room even more inviting. Candles flicker from the
polished antique silver candelabras set on every table. The soft classical music that
fills the air sets the perfect mood for a quiet breakfast elegantly served on antique bone
china with crystal stemware.
After a leisurely breakfast, unwind on the property or venture out and
discover all the charming town of Lee has to offer. Play a round of golf or
