Newly built, custom residence constructed with authentic elements to reproduce a Revolutionary War era Colonial home
Redding, Conn. – September 24, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a nine-acre country compound that includes a newly custom-built main house reminiscent of an 18th century Colonial home. The property, which additionally includes a guest house, pool house, various sport amenities, and a classic red barn preserved and transported from a farm in Pennsylvania, is located in the historic town of Redding, Conn. The listing is represented by Wilton agent Ryan Cornell, and offered at $2,950,000.
The estate’s main house, which was built in 1992, showcases complete custom design with old-world styles and expert craftsmanship that exudes an antique environment. Various authentic features and high quality materials can be found throughout the home including reclaimed wide-plank timber floors, hand-forged nails as well as genuine wrought-iron door latches and pulls. In addition to these stylistic antique elements, the spacious, 5,779 square-foot residence displays favorable modern amenities such as central air conditioning, high efficiency heating equipment and insulation, high ceilings and an open floor plan. Perhaps the home’s most evident piece of genuine historic detail is the incorporation of an antique Dutch-style barn that was previously dismantled and brought back to life, now serving as the home’s family room. Additional features and amenities include elaborate millwork, windows and board doors that were custom made by a master woodcrafter in Northern Massachusetts, two Colonial staircases, six fireplaces, a walk-out basement, movie room, billiard’s room, game room, play room and gym.
Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom suite contains a luxurious bathroom and wardrobe room, while all other bedrooms feature ample closet space, built-ins and bathrooms. A secluded third-floor office suite separated from the main living areas complete the six-bedroom home.
“The residence is truly exquisite, beautifully built to evoke the timeless qualities of the Revolutionary War era,” said Cornell. “Unlike the usually tight, closed-in design associated with most historic homes, this newly constructed antique reproduction is full of space and a sense of openness, offering the best of both worlds.”
On the nine-acre property, a freestanding red barn, which was moved from its original location and professionally restored to its distinct Dutch style, resides. A fully equipped pool house complete with limestone floors, a vaulted barrel ceiling, barn-style sliding doors and hand-crafted leaded glass windows, rests adjacent to the in-ground pool. Two outdoor showers, a built-in grill house, bathroom and changing rooms are also conveniently available. Other exterior amenities include a Har-Tru tennis court, basketball court and paddle tennis court, which is both heated and illuminated. The ground’s overall sweeping and expansive landscape allows for multiple recreational opportunities and entertainment. Perennial gardens, mature trees and an English garden overlooking the pool, complete the property.
