Property description

We call our wonderful vacation home, 'Serenity', because all your stress and worries will disappear when you're here!

This beautifully renovated, 120 year-old former mill sits just feet away from a lovely brook on a 7-acre, heavily wooded lot just off of Route 4 in Litchfield county, CT. In the summer, open the windows and you can hear the water flowing by from every room in the house. You'll love falling asleep to the sound!

There's lots of room to explore on the property. Splash around in the brook, watch for trout, or just sit and gaze at the waterfall. We're very close to the Audubon preserve, so you never know what rare birds you might see (there's a Blue Heron that loves to stalk the brook trout right next to the house). Like looking at nature but don't want to be out in it? You'll love the screened in patio with large sliding glass doors on three sides.

Feel like relaxing with a good movie? You'll enjoy the flat-screen TV and 24 hr. On-Demand movies through Comcast. Classic movie buffs will enjoy our Alfred Hitchcock movie library. Alfred Hitchcock was a good friend of a previous owner and often vacationed at the house! Of course, you'll never find a better spot for curling up with a good book.

Check out all the dining, shopping, and other activities available in beautiful Litchfield County, then come home and relax with a bubble bath in the huge clawfoot tub.

There's a fully-stocked kitchen with everything you need for whipping up a great meal and a nice big gas grill for those summer cookouts.

In the winter months, you'll love being surrounded by a wintry wonderland as you are warmed by the cozy fireplace. Winter sports fans will enjoy the nearby Mohawk Ski Resort.

*note: There is also a four-room caretaker's cottage on the property (opposite the garage, cannot be seen from main house) that is currently occupied. Contact us for more details.

We know once you've experienced 'Serenity', you'll never want to leave!
