A Getaway Right at Home

No need to plan a vacation while living at this custom built contemporary mini-estate surrounded by amenities and perfect views.  Situated on private grounds in the charming Connecticut town of New Fairfield, 19 &29 Chestnut Drive offers endless ways to relax and take in the view of the nearby Candlewood Lake.

The property boasts a beautiful atmosphere with numerous stone patios, decks and terraces overlooking the pristine gardens and lush lawns.  Enjoy a morning tennis match on the residence’s own backyard court, cool off in the heated in-ground pool, warm up in the steam room, and perhaps end the day with a cold drink from the bar and a family gathering in the game room.  And if that doesn’t sound enough like vacation, take a step inside the home and marvel at the astounding views of Candlewood Lake visible from nearly every room.  Beautiful cherry wood floors and two-story high walls of glass make this the perfect home for formal yet relaxed entertaining.  Whether a full-time resident or a weekend retreat, it’s impossible not to feel like you are on vacation at this extraordinary residence.  There is even a romantic master bedroom suite with his and her wardrobe rooms to complete the remarkably carefree atmosphere.

Candlewood Lake is Connecticut’s largest man-made reservoir, reaching 86 miles of rural shoreline through the towns of Danbury, Brookfield, New Milford, Sherman and New Fairfield.  The lake is a major summer attraction for avid boaters and fishers, as well as individuals who enjoy other outdoor activities such as diving, water skiing, hiking and camping.  In addition to recreation, Candlewood Lake provides its visitors with untainted natural beauty, and its lucky residents with a constant serene domain.  Such is the case with this New Fairfield gem, which is clearly the ultimate getaway right at home.
