Owner info

About the owner: We bought this home to use as a family weekend retreat, and as a base for all the wonderful activities in the area. As active as we are, we also love to cook, pack picnics to take on hikes while we spend time together as a family playing cards, backgammon and scrabble. There is a large TV in the house, and two movie theaters nearby, so always plenty of rainy day activities!

Why the Owner Chose Washington Depot, Washington, CT, USA:
We fell in love with the property as soon as we first saw it. The views from the house are incredible. The meadow, the woods and the barns offer endless adventures for children. The hiking trails, accessed from the property are amazing. In the summers we also go kayaking on The Shepaug, canoeing on Lake Waramaug and bike riding on the back roads. In the winters we love to snow shoe and cross country ski on the nearby trails, we ski at either Butternut or Mohawk (20 minutes away), we skate at the local rink.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Washington has many charming antique stores, wonderful restaurants and a great library with many activities. Lots of farms nearby to go apple or berry picking.
