Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a film producer with 5 grandchildren for whom I built this house. I am anticipating being in London & Paris for work all of next year and therefore decided to put the house up for rent. Ideally, I would prefer a year-long renter or a month-long renter.

Why the Owner Chose Cornwall Bridge, Cornwall, CT, USA:
It was a difficult decision to put my house and our things on the rental market, but I'd rather have it used and there's very little that's breakable.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
this is a very special house in that I built for my 5 grandchildren or rather when I was anticipating grandchildren. It has been enjoyed by all them as they can play, swim, hike, ski, garden, play organized sports, barbecue, roast s'mores around a campfire, sleep under the stars, and roughhouse with the DOG who is far enough from the road to never be on leash and protects the many flowers and vegetables from deer. Our neighbor on route 7 (although our driveway is 1/4 mile long and far from the road) is the Housatonic Valley, which protects the region Association which protects
