About the Property

3 bedrm, 2 bath, open light-filled living spaces

This is a perfect getaway on a quiet rural road, looking out on a private wooded view. The open entertaining area includes light-filled Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen. The Kitchen has island seating and the cook looks over the garden - this is a kitchen for a cooking enthusiast.

The comfortable private bedrooms all overlook the garden and woods. The 2nd Floor Master Bedroom has two walk in closets and a wall of windows - the bed is queen size. The main guest room (first floor) with a queen size bed has an in-room vanity and closet. The third bedroom (first floor) also has an in-room vanity as well as a full (double) bed and plenty of room to play. The Den (Second Floor) has a sofa bed (full/double size).

The Master Bath (adjacent to Master Bedroom) is generous in size and has a two sink vanity, a huge soaking tub overlooking the woods and a shower big enough for two. The 2nd bath (First Floor) is smaller but nicely detailed with wall hung toilet and sink and an easy walk in shower. While it is not technically handicap accessible, this bath has grab bars and is good for the elderly.

Other rooms include a central art/game table within the Open Entertaining area, the 2nd Floor Den (already mentioned) for quiet work or movie watching, and a 2nd floor Laundry Room. There will be storage area in basement available.

Outdoor spaces include - flower garden, herb garden, lawn and patio with seating for four, 2nd floor covered deck with a hammock.

Beautiful details and materials throughout- this is a very sustainable house. Architect owner lovingly designed this house in 2006 and has used it regularly with her husband and young daughter. The house is family friendly but not child-proofed. You can search online using 'Sharon, CT, Dwell, Beavers' and you'll see a great Dwell article and slide show on house.

Please note also there is a one bedroom Owner's loft (bed, bath, kitchen, living) above the detached garage - separate and private from the house. The owners stay there every few weekends but in no way disturb the privacy of the house and the property . The loft is not included within the rental rate but could be available for additional rent.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am the architect of this house and many others in the NY, NJ, CT areas. My husband and daughter and I spend many wonderful weekends and breaks at our Sharon home and love Litchfield County and the Hudson Valley with all they have to offer. We live mainly in Brooklyn.

Why the Owner Chose Sharon, CT, USA:
We've been renting the house for a few years now and we've had wonderful guests thus far. We're looking forward to many more. We sometimes overlap since we use our owners loft approximately every other weekend - but this is a very separate private loft.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Are you a writer? An artist? A person who enjoys quite, light filled rooms and walks along a country lane? Do you appreciate modern spaces without clutter? Do you want to look through a wall of glass - out over the garden - while cooking dinner? This is the house for you.
