William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Historic Weston Home


Property combines charming antique living with modern day convenience

Weston, Conn. (May 5, 2016) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that a historic property in Weston, Conn., known as “Hog Hollow Farm,” is now for sale and listed with Westport agent Lori Elkins. The residence, which is offered at $739,999, has been thoughtfully updated and expanded throughout the years, blending modern-day living with antique charm.

While town records date back to 1825, the home’s hand-hewn timber suggests that the original construction of the residence could have been earlier, or perhaps the residence was re-built with materials salvaged from an older structure. Records also indicate that the property was used as a hog farm, which was typical of the area. Although originally encompassing more than 50 acres of land adjacent to the Saugatuck River, the house and its grounds were given to the Northfield Congregational Church in the 1950s, and subdivided into parcels for sale. The original house, which is now for sale, presently rests on 1.44 acres of land.

Hog Hollow Farm offers the distinct charm of yesteryear and updated amenities of today in its 2,595 square feet of space. The four-bedroom, three-bath antique Colonial has undergone numerous additions and updates, including a gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry, granite counters and top notch appliances. The master suite has two walk-in closets, a fireplace and balcony, as well as a large, renovated master bath. The home contains wide oak, chestnut and pumpkin pine floors, wavy glass windows, three fireplaces, chestnut beams and more. The property, which boasts flagstone patios surrounded by pristine landscaping and English gardens, additionally offers a two-car garage/barn with a loft space for various potential uses.

“This lovely home provides residents with the best of both worlds,” said Elkins. “The combination of its maintained original details and updated luxuries is truly exquisite, making for an ideal living environment. Located in the convenient lower part of Weston, this property is full of opportunities, all of which I am thrilled to represent.”
