Sharon house description

This is a peaceful haven in beautiful Litchfield County that is a two hour drive from downtown Manhattan and also accessible by Metro North to Ten Mile River train stop -- it is a 15 minute drive to the home from that stop.

5200 sf barn-style house built in 2005 on 10 acres, plus an entire 1200 sf fully fitted studio apartment connected to the house via the kitchen. Furnishings are beautiful and it's decorated in a cool comfortable way--combining country and modern.

Main house has 4 bedrooms upstairs (3 en suite): 1) king sized bed, 2) double bed, 3) queen sized bed, and 4) 2 cribs (rooms are large and can accommodate aero mattresses). First floor of house has a large beautiful great room with 40' ceilings, a stone fireplace, and an area for watching tv (house has cable, internet, and a land line). There is also a bedroom downstairs that connects to a half-bathroom.

The studio apartment is fully fitted with kitchen and bathroom, and a 3 car garage is connected to house.

Outside is an amazing large deck replete with everything you would need for a beautiful outside meal or to spend a lazy afternoon relaxing. The back area is largely flat for a great game of whatever you play, and has a swingset/playset for kids. Just beyond the lawn area is the pool, a large 46' unite heated pool, with chairs/umbrella.

Sharon has a nice market and also has Ellsworth Farm for fruit picking and the Sharon Audubon for fun, educational days for children.

We are also near Kent, CT which has a lot of things to do, including the Appalachian Trail and all sorts of activities on the Housotonic River. Kent has a number of restaurants, shops, a market, and the well-known Kent Falls.

We are 15 minutes to Millerton, NY which has a wonderful cinema (for both art house as well as mainstream movies), the rail trail and good food/shops. Other nearby towns include Lakeville (and the Lime Rock race track), Salisbury, Washington, Washington Depot, Falls Village, and even Great Barrington or Lenox in MA.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              Why the Owner Chose Sharon:
              We have 3 young kids and bought the house in 2010 to escape from NYC on weekends and holidays with our family. We had friends in the area, and fell in love with the rolling hills, beautiful views, rural landscapes and green pastures.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We fell in love with the home because it looks old but was just built in 2005. It's a beautiful house at the top of a hill with a very long and curvy driveway leading up to it. We loved the amazing space and high ceilings that make the house feel open and inviting and relaxing, and as soon as we enter the house we feel like we're in a different place than our rushed NYC life. It is somewhat lodge-like in the winter, with the tall stone fireplace that extends all the way up to the ceiling, where fires are amazing. In the summer, the property gets great sun, and there is nothing more relaxing than swimming in the quiet pool which feels like it's in the middle of the woods, or relaxing on the deck napping on a couch under one of the umbrellas. We adore it.
