Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of Litchfield County's Great Estates!
Main residence built in 1925, guesthouse, barns, tree-lined driveway, open meadows, views and boathouse on 21.79+/- acres with 288' of lake frontage.
A lovely and unique property on 21.79+/- acres. There are open fields, woodlands, and a significant historic wetland known as Ash Swamp. This swamp serves as an aquifer for Lake Waramaug. It is also home to many species of birds, ducks, ancient turtles and other wildlife, including a very active family of beavers.
There are 288 feet of private lake frontage with a ten year old boathouse and deck, a mahogany dock and mooring for boats. There are three New England barns; two with mahogany flooring and one with concrete, originally used to raise Highland beef cattle and now houses hay and equipment.
The main house on the property was built in 1925, with the last complete renovation in the late 1950’s. It is twin chimney, gracious, comfortable center hall Colonial with beautiful, well-proportioned rooms.
The rest of the property includes a very large Scott swimming pool, the first of its kind. There is a cabana with a hand-crafted mahogany bar, working refrigeration and plumbing including His and Hers showers, toilets, sinks and dressing rooms.
A separate guesthouse is situated on a hill beyond the main house and pool/cabana. It was built in 1961 and has a garage, three bedrooms, two baths and a Great Room which includes a kitchenette, dining area, and a very large open hearth and living room.
All of the domestic buildings on the property are landscaped and have flagstone/slate terraces and in tact landscaping. There are lovely Connecticut stonewalls throughout the estate.
The immediate views encompass Lake Waramaug, the Litchfield Hills, and the Lake Waramaug Country Club and Golf course and Beach & Tennis Club. In the distance, the magnificent Berkshire Mountains.
