Our sellers know that when we market their homes, they will receive the exposure and attention they deserve. Our recent collaboration with the Bravo television network is a perfect illustration of this. Property Envy, Bravo TV’s newest lifestyle show, has chosen two spectacular properties offered through Litchfield Hills Sotheby’s International Realty to appear in its first season. In every episode of this talk show-style series, a group of highly regarded architectural, real estate and design professionals explores a selection of luxury properties for sale all over the country, and then tries to decide which listing gives them the most property envy. We are excited to have our properties featured and introduced to a broad audience of viewers who appreciate fine property.
A contemporary residence with a sophisticated design by renowned architect Anthony Ames is one of the homes that will appear on the show. Located in Roxbury, Connecticut, the carefully engineered residence was recognized in 1989 with the American Institute of Architects Design Award. The striking exterior of architectural block and brick incorporates expanses of glass into porcelain panels, capturing beautiful views that extend over lovely woodland, stone walls and picturesque meadows. The home is surrounded by nine acres of natural landscape. Inside, dramatic spaces are designed with the finest materials including plastered walls, oak floors and custom cabinetry, with top-of-the-line mechanical systems throughout. Offering 3,321 square feet of living space, three bedrooms, and four and a half baths, the home is available for $4,400,000.
The envy of the Bravo team will also be aroused by a classic lake house in New Fairfield, Connecticut. Designed in 2003 by Miriam Weinreb Lissak, this magnificent home enjoys the largest private beach on the largest lake in the state, Candlewood Lake. Crafted with careful attention to detail and quality, this residence has received several awards including the 2004 “Best New Old Home” Home Building Industry Award. The exceptional craftsmanship is evident throughout the Victorian-style home’s living spaces, including a formal living room accessing a mahogany deck with Jacuzzi, entry foyer with quartered oak hardwood flooring, and sun-blasted kitchen with views over the lake and stunning artisanal tile work. With 8,553+ square feet of living area and 12 manicured acres, this property is offered at $8,950,000. We look forward to seeing the Property Envy panel’s discussion of these two extraordinary properties.
