Olivas in New Preston
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: I lived in CT for thirty years but returned to Salt Lake City in 2000. During this time I have missed the springtime peepers, the wildflowers that predominate in bog and meadow, the quaint villages, shops, and covered bridges. I decided that I would re-establish a foothold in Litchfield County to be closer to my two daughters and son-in-law, who live on the east coast. We purchased this quintessential New England farmhouse so that we could be together periodically. The house is a wonderfully, intimate house with both old and new--well preserved but modernized and updated.
Why the Owner Chose New Preston: Litchfield county is the loveliest part of Connecticut with its broad fields, meadows, and rolling ridges. It has fine stone walls, perfectly-sized towns, and very interesting diverse locals which includes artists, romantics, professionals, and backwoods bubbas. This region has great restaurants, cute taverns, museums, art galleries, and the most amazing inviting winding roads. Yet, it is so close to New York or Boston.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse: Nearby, there is access to Lake Waramaug for swimming (CT's largest natural lake), the Appalachian Trail for hiking, the Berkshires and Tanglewood for cultural events and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Housatonic River for its fly-fishing, and extraordinary antiquing in Litchfield County. This house is nestled among mature trees and lovely grounds. There are plenty of restaurants from cheap to very expensive, there are local vineyards, farmers' markets, bakeries, art galleries, and wine stores. Step out the front door and explore a marvelous vacation opportunity.
