This is a charming, two-story home across from the 1835 Congregational Church in historic South Britain and the surrounding foothills at the border of Litchfield County.. It is an easy 75-minutes away from NYC by car and 2 hours by bus.
The two-story carriage house was built in 1795 as part of the main house. The first floor space for the carriage is now a very large living room and adjacent television viewing area (bedroom 3 at night). A kitchen and dining room wing was added with views out to the grounds. The second floor is reached by an open stair. The former hayloft and stable master's quarters are now a super-sized master bedroom, a sun-room office with windows facing 3 directions, a second smaller bedroom, a modern bathroom with shower, and a washer/dryer area.
Adjacent to the Carriage House is a 450 sq. ft. sky-lighted 3-Season Room (April to December) with a profusion of plants, an over-sized fire place, lounge and dining seating, buffet and bar, and views opening to to the lawns and gardens. This space is perfect for parties, meetings, conferences, buffet dinners, even weddings on the lawns. This space, if available, can be rented by the day if you would like to have it.
