Owner info

About the owner: Current owners Warren and Elizabeth Cook inherited the property from Warren's father. Born in 1910, William Cook grew up in Middlefield witnessing the introduction of the car, the telephone and electricity. The family's 1700's farm house still stands across the street. After a forty year career at IBM, William Cook built the current house in 1972 on land that had been the apple orchard of the ancestral farm. He lived there until his death at 97. Upon inheriting the property, Elizabeth and Warren initiated major renovations to take advantage to the inherent beauty of the house and its mountainside location. Elizabeth grew up near Pittsburgh, PA and has a background in fashion merchandizing including executive positions at Bergdorf Goodman, Barney's New York, and theory. Warren grew up in Long Island, NY and has worked in book publishing, movies, and web commerce. Together they currently own a home design store in Westchester, NY.
