Overlooking both the Shepaug River and the 360-acre Mine Hill Preserve, the views from Evergreen House in Roxbury, Connecticut, are so stunning that Broadway composer David Krane credits them as a source of much of his inspiration. Krane, who has used this lovely contemporary residence as his weekend country home, has worked on Broadway for over three decades, and written and arranged music for 29 shows. His career has taken him to Hollywood as well, including work with actress Michelle Williams for her Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated role in My Week with Marilyn, and Michael Douglas for his upcoming role as Liberace in Beyond the Candelabra. Now the property that has served as one of Krane’s creative sparks is on the market through our partner firm, Litchfield Hills Sotheby’s International Realty, for $647,000.
The architect-designed, cedar-clad home features three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and 2,288 square feet of living space, with public rooms that maintain a graceful and casual flow. Standout spaces include a living room with one of the home’s three fireplaces and views extending to the preserve, dining room with peaceful views of the home’s rear garden, family room with fireplace and sliding doors to a large deck, office with clerestory windows and views, updated eat-in kitchen and sky-lit second-story seating area with fireplace. The vaulted master suite is presented in calming earth tones and offers a renovated bath and balcony that overlooks the deck and gardens. Oversized windows throughout the home bathe the interior in sunshine, illuminating exquisite materials such as cherry floors and sandstone in the foyer.
The home has been well maintained, with both the exterior and interior repainted last year, renovations completed on many of the living spaces, and the gravel drive newly dressed. Added to the home’s excellent turnkey condition is its immaculate setting, five pristine, professionally landscaped acres of property on a private road, emphasizing nature over neighbors in its idyllic seclusion. The residence also benefits from its location in one of Connecticut’s most scenic towns, known for its country charm and historic architecture, close to all of the amenities of the Litchfield Hills and only 90 minutes from New York City. This is a home for those who appreciate nature at its most beautiful and most inspiring.
