Washington house description
There is something magical about Litchfield County. Located an easy 90 minutes from Midtown Manhattan, life takes on a relaxed pace among the rolling hills of this beautiful countryside. Nestled in a quiet corner of Washington, this peaceful and luxurious 3 bedroom home sits proudly on 2 sunny acres. Enter the drive through a break in the century old stonewall, and arrive at the bluestone walk to the main entry. This single level home is designed with a casual elegance, perfect for a country retreat. The inviting living room with wood burning fireplace features a vaulted ceiling, oversized seating for late night movie watching, and two doors to the large deck on the rear of the house. The kitchen is a chef's dream, appointed with JennAir professional series appliances including range plus an additional wall oven and microwave. The dining area is adjacent to the kitchen and features access to the aforementioned deck.
There are three bedrooms in the home. The master suite provides the ultimate escape, with a separate sitting room with TV, sofa and wing chair in addition to the vaulted bedroom with gas fireplace and access to a screened porch perfect for morning coffee while listening to the bird chorus outside. The master bed is queen size and features a Simmons BeautyRest pillow top mattress with imported Italian and Belgian linens. The master bath was recently renovated and features heated floor, dual-sink marble vanity, and tub/shower. Frette towels are used in each of the bathrooms.
Bedrooms two and three are strategically sited to provide distance and privacy from the master suite. Bedroom two epitomizes tranquility. Painted in a soft sky-blue hue, this corner bedroom is sunny and quiet with a beautiful queen iron-framed bed and ultra-luxurious Simmons BeautyRest pillow top mattress. Italian sheets with Belgian quilts cover the bed.
Bedroom three contains two twin beds, both appointed with the same Italian and Belgian luxury linens used throughout the house. There are TVs in both bedroom two and three.
The oversized deck has a large table and four chairs for outdoor dining. The screened porch has outdoor wicker style love seat and chairs. The lawn is open and there are perfect locations for bocce or croquet.
The home is perfectly located, and within a ten minute drive of so many great destinations, including The Mayflower Inn and Spa (where Sunday brunch is a must!), the shops in Washington Depot or New Preston Village, and of course Lake Waramaug is also moments away.
You'll find that the home has a great energy - no matter the time of day, the light and the sun create a light in the house that has a most calming effect. This is truly a place to get away from it all and we look forward to making your stay absolutely perfect.

Year Purchased: 2011
Why the Owner Chose Washington:
After almost 15 years in NYC, Litchfield County sold itself to us on a day trip. Before long, we had bought a house and began life as weekenders. As it usually happens, we ended up spending more and more time in the country!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I am used to acting as a "country concierge" for our guests - guiding them to places to relax, eat, hike and more. I'm available to our guests before, during and even after their stay!
