The owners of this incredible traditional home requested a place that would welcome grown children, grandchildren, formal entertaining as well as relaxed living. The house has become home base for family gatherings, horseback riding, and keeping in touch with good friends.
The spaces in this home range from very private to places where all guests feel very welcome. There are multiple porches, a kitchen that accommodates 2 or 20 comfortably and 6 fireplaces. Multiple French doors allow views of the surrounding landscape as well as the pool house, while the long views across the valley provide a wonderful bonus to a very special place in Northern Connecticut.
