How it Began:
The Moorings was the conception of William Miller, a developer who purchased the picturesquely designed park-like estate of Charles Lanier Lawrance. The estate originally belonged to famed Wall Street banker, H. B. Hollins and was landscaped by the Olmsted Brothers. Miller improved upon the site by constructing roadways, curbs, bulkheading, drainage, and waterways connecting to a private yacht marina. He also enforced strict stipulations to maintain the characteristic beauty and dignity of the lush bayside wooded acreage; land was sold at acre minimum and no two estates could be of generic plans nor could they be of similar plans within the gates.

Building began in 1964, prior to the incorporation of the homeowner’s association and became steady in 1977. Developing completed in 1999 with a 16-acre estate featuring 100 feet of frontage on Champlin Creek, being subdivided into 11 lots, known as the Harbour View project. Meadow Farm, the 19th-century estate remained on a 5.88-acre waterfront parcel and was eventually rebuilt. The estate’s owners salvaged marble fireplaces, paneling, and other appurtenances for the construction of a new estate.

The idea of a Mooring’s association came to light at a Mooring’s party in 1969, where a good deal of feelings and ideas were voiced by members of the community. The general consensus of opinions was that a general outline for rules and regulations was needed within the community to benefit all of its residents and to establish a guideline for all future residents. With this in mind, the Founders Committee was formedReal Estate pricing in the Moorings presently range from $799,000. to 3,500,000.
