Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and shown in many publications, this portion of Tranquility Farm is extraordinary. Designed by the estimable New York firm of McKim, Mead and White, it is a rare and unique example of an intact barn complex, evocative of its early agricultural function.
Crisscrossed by century-old stonewalls, the property is set on 32 bucolic acres and offers 307’ of frontage on the peaceful and serene Lake Quassapaug.
Among the structures in the complex, all of which are original to the farm and rest on fieldstone foundations, is a large, handsome shingled barn once used for livestock and a three-story wagon shed with five sets of sliding barn doors, each surmounted by transom window lights and adorned with original iron strap hinges.
There is a one bedroom fieldstone cottage, known as the Creamery, evocative, again of the industry that took place here generations ago. The large barn would make a fabulous main house and alternatively, there is a building envelope tucked into the rolling hillside.
Tranquility Farm was a destination for generations of local families who bought their fruit, vegetables and the special chicken pot pies that were made on the premises. The extensive historic significance and its unparalleled and spectacular views make this property an iconic beauty.
