William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Achieves Highest Sale in Kent in Over Two Years


Kent agent team represents sale of 127 Anderson Road, a 99-acre family farm that closed for the high price of $1.9 million

Kent, Conn. – March 1, 2016 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that Washington Depot agents Mark Madonna and Jeffrey Phillips recently closed a $1.9 million sale in Kent, Conn., marking the highest achieved sale for the town in over two years. The 1700s Colonial, located at 127 Anderson Road, was under contract just three days after hitting the market.

The 300-year-old, 99-acre farm had been part of the Ferris family for three generations. Well-preserved throughout the years, the property maintains many original details both inside its spacious antique home and out on the grounds, including its original surrounding stone wall. The four-bedroom residence also features wooden doors with original cast iron hardware, six period fireplaces, a summer kitchen with hand-hewn beams, as well as historic windows and wide-plank flooring. Once a dairy farm, the property additionally boasts six post and beam outbuildings including a cow/hay barn, horse barn, granary, ice house and two tobacco drying barns.

“The skies appear to be clearing for the current Kent market,” said Madonna. “This sale was the 13th highest ever in Kent, and the rapid closing makes it even more significant.”

“Sellers seem optimistic that the luxury home market in Litchfield County will stay strong,” added Phillips. “We may even see additional records in the next 18 months, as our agent team is working to bring on new luxury properties at prices rarely seen before in this area.”

Located on one of Kent’s most scenic roads, the historic home offers complete privacy with potential for animals and agriculture. There is also a prospective elevated build site on the grounds with surrounding distant views. The residence also has close proximity to Lake Waramaug, as well as the fine shops, restaurants and art galleries located in Kent’s village center.

“Mark and Jeffrey maintain the same high standards of excellence, resulting in a great agent team,” said Kristine Newell, manager of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Washington Depot brokerage. “This impressive closing in Kent is just one of many successful real estate transactions they’ve achieved, and a testament to their dedication, service and passion for the industry.”
