Broadway composer David Krane finds the views from his weekend retreat so beautiful that they have been a source of inspiration for him in his professional work. Evergreen House, overlooking the 360-acre Mine Hill Preserve as well as the lovely Shepaug River, is now on the market to provide inspiration to a new owner. The home is available for $647,000 with our partner firm, Litchfield Hills Sotheby’s International Realty.
Offering three bedrooms and two and a half baths, the cedar-clad residence presents its public spaces in a casual, flowing design, spread out over 2,288 interior square feet. The architect-designed home highlights a living room showcasing Mine Hill Preserve views and one of three fireplaces, renovated dine-in kitchen, family room including access to a deck and a fireplace, office with peaceful views and clerestory windows, dining room overlooking the back garden, and second-floor seating area adorned with a fireplace and skylight. The home was carefully designed with exceptional materials including sandstone in the foyer and cherry floors, and boasts large windows that fill the living spaces with sunlight. The residence also has a master suite featuring a vaulted ceiling, earth tones, a balcony viewing the gardens and deck, and an updated bath.
Renovations have been finished on several of the rooms, while painting has been completed inside and out and the driveway is newly dressed. Indeed, the home is in excellent move-in condition. The five acres of professionally landscaped grounds complete this property’s splendor, placing an emphasis on nature over neighbors and offering a secluded location along a private road. Nearby are all of the amenities of the Litchfield Hills, as well as the historic architecture and rural ambiance of Roxbury, one of the state’s most picturesque towns. New York City can be reached in a mere 90 minutes.
Krane, whose writing and arranging work spans over three decades and 29 shows on Broadway, often composed his music here. He has also lent his talents to Hollywood, working with Michael Douglas for the forthcoming film Beyond the Candelabra and Michelle Williams for My Week with Marilyn, a film that garnered the actress a Golden Globe win and an Oscar nomination. Now one of Krane’s artistic inspirations awaits a new owner, one who can appreciate nature at its very finest.
