This magnificent country compound sits on 40+ acres in Kent, CT. There is a horse farm at one end of the street and Macedonia State Park’s hiking trails at the other. The main house was built in the early 1800’s and showcases original fieldstone walls, beams and beauty. The property’s structures are surrounded by curated and distinct gardens, boxwoods, a rushing brook, the town’s original mill (for cocktail parties, reading, or fishing) and private hills. Inside, original hardwood floors and a half dozen fireplaces breathe warmth and charm. The main building features a stone wall dining room, a double-height kitchen, a gracious living room, an inviting den, a sunroom, four bedrooms and an extra finished third floor for spillover guests. The patio off the sunroom is HQ for the BBQ, lounge chairs and outdoor dining and music. A covered breezeway leads to a four-six car garage (the original stable), a game room and a separate office and gym. The two bedroom guesthouse (with kitchen) predates the main structure and is positioned across from the soaring c1900 barn, for storage of any and all equipment and tools. A pool, a stone pool house, soccer field and golf chipping area, a tennis court, a basketball hoop and archery bales keep the playful active and engaged. Interiors have all been re-imagined by famed designer Jeffrey Bilhuber and featured in multiple architectural books. By appointment only.
