Description

When you envision a classic New England country home, set amid the rolling fields and wooded hills of Litchfield County, you have pictured this idyllic property. On 47 acres of meadows and woods, with a pond, stone walls, gardens, and split rail fences, this 1776 Colonial has been loved and improved through the years. The 2002 addition includes a versatile private guest suite that could easily serve as a master bedroom or office and a comfortable 3 season porch. The main house has been updated throughout while retaining many original features, including three fireplaces, one of them a massive cooking fireplace, wide board flooring, and beautiful wood paneling. The updated eat-in kitchen features soapstone counters, exposed beams, wood cabinets, and a large sitting area with French doors to a fieldstone patio. There is a modern boiler and radiant heat throughout the first floor. The vintage post-and-beam barn is in excellent condition.

The village of Winchester is an undiscovered gem, and the location is convenient to recreation and dining in every direction. Come see for yourself!
