A grand stone entrance leads one to a beautifully updated 1930’s home set well back from the road at the end of an elegant driveway on six acres of sweeping natural meadows in the style of Piet Oudolf. Wildflowers, apple trees, formal gardens and pond form a dream landscape that is enchanting, ecologically responsible, and part of Connecticut’s Pollinator Pathway. Once inside, notice the wide board floors, 7 fireplaces, custom millwork and built-ins, gorgeously renovated kitchen and atrium eating area, spacious master bedroom with spa bath and stunning balcony overlooking the back terrace and gardens. Stroll out of the breathtaking sunroom to take in the juxtaposition of the rear formal gardens. Take time to stroll through the gardens, the private back yard, the pergola, the romantic brick patio, and the moon gate to the pond, part of the Five Mile River. In addition to the main house, is the charming cottage with kitchen, fireplace, bedroom, and 1.5 baths, perfect for guests, family or expansive office. Extensive updates including major mechanicals and interior renovations, an incredibly special opportunity for your own peaceful, private haven under one hour to New York City.
