              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: I am a writer with a home farm consisting of 30 apple, pear, and cherry trees, fruit and vegetable gardens, and a flock of chickens and rooster named Junior. The paddock immediately across the rolling lawn is perfect for flying a kite, frisbee, football, snowshoeing, making a snowman.

              Why the Owner Chose Wilton:
              This is our year-round home and the cottage is far enough away from the main house to afford the renter and us our privacy. This estate farm is wonderful four seasons, which is why we chose to buy here. We use it exclusively and privately from September until June. it is not a rental unit, it is the private guest home at our antique estate and we maintain it that way for our discerning family and guests. This is the first year I will rent it during the fall and winter holidays.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Flocks of turkey, deer, fox, and all types of birds thrive in our spacious back yards. Our farm, Meadow Rock Farm, was first built in 1742 and is steeped in history.
