Property description

This airy, light home is situated on a hill-top with panoramic views of farms and forested hills.

The expansive home features a huge sun-room, dining room, and large living room, as well as a wide porch with views of the hills for enjoying morning coffee or an early evening cocktail. Four large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms make the home perfect for families or groups of friends. Large property is perfect for informal family soccer or football games. Excellent biking on country roads, miles of hiking trails and skiing nearby, and a state park with a lake within walking distance.

The location is quiet, with just a few houses nearby, yet within 20 minutes drive of historic Litchfield, 25 minutes from Norfolk's Yale music center and 10 minutes from grocery stores and movie theaters.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: My sister, brother and I own the house, and we have been coming here for weekends and extended stays for years. Among the three of us, we work in education, music, public health and finance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love how close the house is to NYC, and that when we arrive we can look out over farms and forested hills. We swim, hang out on the lawn, play board games with our nieces and nephews on the porch, go swimming in the nearby lake, and barbeque and cook big meals for our friends and families.
