Situated on over 13 acres in tony Washington, CT is the estate of iconic fashion photographer, William D. Helburn. The impressive antique Greek Revival is expansive and airy with over 4,700sf of living space and includes a guest/caretaker apartment.
The park-like grounds comprised of rolling lawns, beautiful stonewalls, large rhododendrons, mature plantings, skating pond and large bluestone patio overlooking a gunite pool is everything you can ask for. A storybook playhouse sits at the edge of the woods through an opening in the stonewalls. There is also a detached garage/barn with fencing which could possibly be converted to a stable for a horse or two. A walkway made up of aged large stones and flanked by two ancient trees leads to the main entrance with two dreamy symmetrically columned covered porches on either side.
The interior of the house features bright, large rooms, original oak and chestnut wide board floors, exposed beams and charming built-ins. Whilst this property needs restoration, it is well worth bringing it back to its full original glory. Come take a look and fall in love!
