Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I am an architect with offices in Connecticut and New York City. Designing and building single-family homes has always been a major part of my practice. I selected this site because it is private yet close to in-town restaurants, shops, the Housatonic River, and covered bridge.
Why the Owner Chose West Cornwall, Cornwall, CT, USA:
I designed and built my country home for myself and my family on five private, hillside acres. It is a serene location and I now want to share it with others.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are activities for all four seasons. Spring has the new growth of the surrounding forest and the newborn deer and wild turkeys. And there's hiking on the Appalachian Trail, which runs through Cornwall. Summer has the lush verdant beauty that is unique to northwest Connecticut. The Housatonic River offers boating and fishing, and the town has a beach and tennis courts. Antiquing is readily available throughout the area and the nearby Berkshires and New York State. Tanglewood is an easy drive. Fall offers spectacular colors for leaf-watchers. The surrounding forests turn ever so slowly from green to gold with peak colors generally around mid-October. Winter is a paradise for skiers. Mohawk Mountain Ski area is in Cornwall. Nine other ski area are within an hour's drive.
