Norfolk house description

Surrounded by protected green space for dozens of acres of rolling hills and woods, the property has a fire pit, a swing set and climber for kids, and lots of space to run around and explore.

A large front porch overlooks the front yard, perfect for enjoying morning coffee or an early evening cocktail. A large screened-in porch faces the back yard, where the barbecue grill generally lives. The large back yard is the perfect place for kids to play and for informal family soccer or football games. Beyond the yard are more woods to explore.

Inside the house, a large den, formal dining room, sun room, and a study are graced by two fireplaces. The kitchen has a large Viking stove with six burners and two ovens with plenty of room for large dinner parties. The house is furnished with everything you need for your stay, including bed linens, towels, kitchen equipment, cooking staples and basic toiletries.

Six bedrooms occupy the second floor, including four queen beds, along with two rooms with two twins each. Off two of the bedrooms, two sun porches provide additional hang-out space. The house comfortably sleeps twelve with room for more beyond the furnished bedrooms. Entertainment in the house includes ping pong, foosball and two television sets with DVD players (sorry, no cable).

The house is close to the Norfolk town center, skiing, the public town pond, a playground, soccer field, tennis courts, four state parks, wineries, Music Mountain and tubing on the Farmington River. In Norfolk, there are restaurants and the famous Infinity Hall, an incredible setting for viewing music and other performances. The Yale Music School holds performances on their beautifully-landscaped grounds at the center of town throughout the summer and the Norfolk public library is an architectural gem with a great kids’ room. A farmers’ market runs from late spring to mid-fall every Saturday. The town of Winsted has lots to offer including go carts, mini-golf, batting cages, a free-public skate park, a multiplex movie theatre, and a dinner movie theater. Scenic towns nearby for great day trips include Great Barrington, Salisbury, Kent and Litchfield.

This setting is perfect for a family get-away you will always remember.

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: My brother's family and ours has been enjoying this house as a relaxing get away for us and our friends. Connecticut natives, we have been amazed at the natural beauty and recreational options offered by the State's quiet corner. The endless activities and scenic areas to discover in and around Norfolk have been one of the great experiences in owning this house.

              Why the Owner Chose Norfolk:
              With plenty of room to spread out and the perfect balance of country and town, this property provides the ideal sense of quiet countryside with walking and biking access to many areas for entertainment. Feel away from it all without being too far away.
