With its picturesque countryside, ideal for camping, hiking, biking and other activities, the town of Kent in Litchfield County, Connecticut, is a highly sought-after area in the summertime. For enjoying those summer evenings and afternoons, a Kent home now available with Litchfield Hills Sotheby’s International Realty for $2,875,000 offers the perfect environment. The 24 acres provide a wonderful setting for pleasant walks on the grounds, with lush, green level lawns enveloped by woodland and lovely gardens that complement the property’s professional landscaping. The 50 by 50 foot outdoor in-ground swimming pool is bordered by an oversized stone terrace, enticing guests to lie out and enjoy the bucolic views before taking a dip in the water to cool off. The home invites this pleasant outdoor atmosphere inside as well, where the summer nights are taken in from the charming screened porch, featuring a vaulted ceiling.
The 4,698 square-foot interior of this modern contemporary home is meticulously crafted to ensure that each of the nine rooms fully benefits from the superb views. Crisp, clean and chic, the two-story home was constructed in 1994 with careful attention to detail. Living spaces include a formal living room, gracious kitchen with granite counters and island, elegant dining room and full basement. The home offers four bedrooms and four baths in total, with a separate guest wing and two guest bedrooms, as well as a gorgeous master bedroom suite with amazing views and a sitting area. The residence also has hardwood floors and three fireplaces.
Situated in the desirable South Kent area, on a private hilltop at 141 Geer Mountain Road, the home fully benefits from its accessibility to all of the amenities of Kent. An outdoor recreational destination, the town features scenic parks, including Kent Falls State Park and Macedonia Brook State Park, as well as a portion of the Appalachian Trail. Spanning the Housatonic River, the Bulls Bridge is another major point of interest, known as one of the state’s oldest covered bridges. The downtown area often attracts visitors with its fine restaurants, art galleries and boutique shopping. A number of political figures, celebrities and other notable personalities have decided to call Kent their home, and with this alluring residence coming to market, a discerning buyer now has the chance to do the same.
