Rare One-of-a-kind Property. 4-5 Bedrooms. 4.5 Baths. 5 Fireplaces. 3-Bay Detached Garage. Breathtaking Views. Private Setting. Close to Town & Amenities. 5± Acres.
Rare one-of-a-kind property with breathtaking westerly views overlooking a large private lake and meadows on the largest part of Laurel Ridge Farm. Privately located along a quiet country road on 5± open acres with spectacular distant views, this sprawling clapboard home, the oldest part of which was built by a descendant of Litchfield’s founder John Marsh in the 1700s, has never been on the open market. Further updated in the 1930’s and 1960’s, with a newly remodeled eat-in kitchen with western facing picture windows, there is enough room for four to five bedrooms, including a first-floor master, as well as three additional baths and one half-bath, a family room, a library, a living room and a formal dining room. There are five fireplaces in the house. A post-and-beam four-season breezeway off the kitchen that currently serves as an office, leads to a three-bay garage with workspace and storage above. The professionally landscaped grounds include stone terraces, glorious perennial gardens, a sleeping shed, flowering and fruit trees, rolling lawns and a vegetable garden. There is a perfect place for a pool. Minutes to Litchfield Center, Bantam Lake, White Memorial Conservation Center and Mt. Tom State Park. Must see!
