This 18th century farmhouse was recently reimagined in a no expense spared restoration. A collaboration between celebrated local architect Harold Tittmann and an exclusive New York designer, the home combines old world charm and a striking, modern interior. With five large bedrooms and four and a half baths, it features luxury finishes and a casual, inviting atmosphere. It is move-in ready and must be seen to be fully appreciated.
The main floor wraps around an original stone chimney with three fireplaces and a functional beehive oven. The dining room transports you back 250 years with its exposed hand-hewn beams and antique wood floors. It abuts a bright white open plan cook’s kitchen with professional grade Gaggenau appliances, an oversized island and a spacious sitting room. Double ovens, double dishwashers, double sinks and an oversized wine fridge make entertaining a breeze. A formal library has intricate millwork and a hidden bar while a cozy family room features a vaulted ceiling, exposed reclaimed beams and paneled walls and ceiling. A mudroom, powder room and guest quarters with en-suite bathroom complete the level.
A sleek floating steel and wood staircase spans four stories and was custom-designed for the house. It leads to the home’s second floor and its oversized master suite, including a freestanding soaking tub and stall steam shower. Another large bedroom features an en-suite bath while two more share a walk-through Jack and Jill bathroom.
Other features include a third floor home office with built-in workspace and a spacious, sun drenched gym; two washers/dryers; and a backup generator. A finished basement provides a children’s playroom and ample storage, including an additional refrigerator. The entire house is wired with state-of-the-art audio/visual components including an indoor/outdoor Sonos system with in-ceiling speakers.
Located on ~13 lush private acres minutes from Washington Depot and Lake Waramaug, the home’s grounds have received equal attention. An expansive entertaining area features a built-in grill; outdoor fireplace; heated gunite pool and spa; and perennial gardens. A separate three-car garage has unfinished attic space that can be easily converted into additional guest accommodations. A half court basketball “stadium” completes this magnificent property.
