About the Property
Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms + Library, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
House is located in beautiful 7-acres on a sloping hill with woods and pond. Hand-woven hammocks hang between trees for peaceful reading and napping in quiet location just 1/2 mile off Rte 202. The house faces East and early morning sunrises bathe the house beautifully through the enchanted woods.
The location is perfect for those looking for a country experience with civilized options. Nearby Litchfield, Washington and Kent offer a wide array of restaurants, pampering spas and antique shops. Hiking trails, water-skiing, swimming, snow-skiing, horse-back riding, wine-tastings at local vineyards are a stone's throw away.
As per past renters' requests, fast speed wifi is now available as well as desk in the library!!

Bantam/ Litchfield is civilized country-living. Outstanding restaurants reviewed by the NY Times, horse-back riding, golfing, antiquing, swimming and kayaking in jaw-dropping Bantam and Waramaug Lakes are available to those who value the pleasures of life and the bliss of privacy.
About the owner: I'm a sales director at an art gallery in New York who enjoys the sophistication of New York and the excitement of travels, but who needs the restorative effect of the countryside.
Why the Owner Chose Bantam, Litchfield, CT, USA:
Being a fulltime resident of New York City, I needed a place that would offer the ideal counterbalance to the city's frenetic pace and attitude. My place is in a tranquil, safe, beautiful location where I feel that I can get away from it all; no traffic, no humming air conditioners, no sirens, no honking taxis.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The house has total privacy. It's placed in 7 very private acres on a road with almost no traffic. The only noise one hears is the chirping of birds or the crickets at sundown. Lie down on a large rock by the pond and listen to the frogs and stare at the star-studded sky, walk in the woods or on the surrounding hills. Its 3 minutes away from grocery stores, restaurants, charming Bantam Cinema, lakes, hiking, river-rafting, antiquing. The house has one story, simplifying mobility and adding to its free-flowing floor plan. Light and airiness abound.
