Nestled on 61+ acres in the Litchfield hills, this pre-revolutionary 5 bedroom, 3 bath farmhouse has been lovingly restored by the Oscar, Pulitzer, and Tony winning author Alfred Uhry and his wife Joanna. The property extends as far as the eye can see, making it so private that the rest of the world falls away. The exquisite grounds include a saltwater gunite pool, antique barn, English gardens, and large fenced vegetable garden. A stone terrace adjoins a magazine-perfect screened porch and together they provide seamless transition between outside and in. The 1737 saltbox is complemented by a tasteful 1990 addition comprising a large sun filled kitchen with pantry and dining area below, and master bedroom upstairs complete with full bath, dressing room, and breathtaking views. The wide floorboards and old beams used in the addition facilitate harmonious flow from the kitchen into the generous living room with a big fireplace, open beams, built-ins, and children’s nook. Off one side is a library with floor to ceiling built-ins and a second fireplace, and off the other is a laundry room leading to a full bath. Next to that is the mudroom with its own fireplace, and upstairs there are four bedrooms and a third full bath, all connected by a central hall. Beautifully appointed and marvelously serene, the house and grounds present a sprawling sanctuary of understated elegance, perfect for family life and entertaining - a gentleman farmer’s dream and country living at its best!
