Quiet and set back from the road, this home with 27± acres of open pasture and woodland is a complete retreat. The 1840’s farmhouse was completely renovated in 1940 by Anna Lord Strauss, an advocate for women's rights and with Eleanor Roosevelt a key figure in the establishment of the United Nations. She created a nature preserve directly across the road, donating 113± acres of land, including Hattertown Pond, preserving the habitat and ensuring that there could be no further development. Prior to her death, she sold her home to Burke Marshall, Yale Law professor and former Kennedy administration Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights. Taking care to preserve the original house, the Marshalls doubled the size of the home, creating a unique meld of old and new and giving it an open feel with plenty of light. Along with a tennis court, fruit trees and well-established vegetable and cutting garden, the grounds include a caretaker's apartment with attached barn, guest cottage, chicken coop, tractor shed, garden shed and well house. Exterior of house freshly painted. Subdivision possible.
