Sharon house description

Nestled in the beautiful lower Berkshires of Litchfield County, your complete escape from the city awaits! This property is a modern house with a New England farmhouse feel. A view of the peaceful surroundings is in every window in this sun filled peaceful home. Situated in the tri-corner region of NY, CT, and MA, it sits on a breezy rise overlooking hay fields, and is surrounded by landscaped gardens featuring a stand of pines and butternuts. The west-facing deck, living room, and master bedroom, overlook the sunset beyond the hay fields, with Indian Mountain defining the horizon. The trip here is a super-convenient journey from New York City either by car, or by Metro-North rail. The Harlem line is a 15 minute drive to Wassaic station, the last stop on that line.

The beauty of the autumn foliage and sparkling blue skies of the season are in full display at this location. The Hotchkiss School football stadium is minutes away, the Appalachian trail, apple picking and cosy evenings at the fireplace or flatscreen TV in the living room complete the picture for fall season weekenders.

Winter at the house is also equally wonderful. Enjoy resting indoors by the fireplace, while watching the snow fall all around. If you are a skier, within a 20-minute drive you will find skiing at Mohawk, and if you head north, Butternut, and Catamount are also a great weekend choices that are away from the crowds of the bigger ski areas.

Hotchkiss School (5 minutes). Kent (20 minutes) and Indian Mountain school (10 minutes) are within a short drive away. If you are parents of boarding school kids, this home could not be more convenient for a weekend to combine rest and visiting with your son or daughter.

The house features a newly renovated kitchen with modern stainless appliances, granite counters, and a 30 bottle wine cooler. Anderson windows are everywhere, wood floors and two newly renovated marble tiled baths. Cable service with a widescreen tv, broadband internet and WiFi keeps you connected if this is what you need.

We hope to hear from you!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Serge and Lannyl Ossorguine work in the arts and reside in Manhattan.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sharon:
                  We like Litchfield County and have many friends with homes here. The County has a history of resisting development and preserving historic land and architecture. We like this. The conveniences are there, but somehow, tastefully done. If we ever need the big box stores, Torrington is not too far. We love the easy commute from New York City by train (Metro-North, Wassaic), which is a huge plus for a family with a many-layered schedule. The drive up from New York is very pleasant. Its not a parking lot on Fridays, like roads leading to the Hamptons. The movie house in Millerton is a great place to see new releases, with two screens that are generally 'one for the kids' and 'one for the adults'. There is a great topographical diversity to the landscape; the Housatonic Valley, the lakes, the rolling farmland that suddenly reveals breathtaking vistas as you pass through it.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house itself was built by a very energy conscious designer during the gas crisis years in the 70s. Insulated very efficiently, there are 3 swedish wood burning stoves in the bedrooms, and a fireplace in the living room, which very effectively augment the ceiling radiated electric heating system. Lots of light pours into the house through many Anderson windows. All wood floors everywhere except marble in the baths and terra cotta in the kitchen. A previous owner was a landscape architect. The gardens include apple trees, pear trees and islands with decorative grasses, perennials, a bonzai and some aromatics.
