William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Unique Private Retreat


Compound property offers Colonial-style home and waterfront guest cottage

Danbury, Conn. – May 26, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realtyannounced today that the firm has listed a private Colonial estate, complete with a waterfront cottage nestled on the property’s surrounding woods in the town of Sherman, Conn. Danbury agent Patty McManus has the listing, which is now for sale and offered at $899,000.

The 3,250 square-foot home, which rests on over 5 acres of private land, was constructed in 1940, and has been well-maintained over the years. The main house of this unique property features various details and architectural work including exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, two wood burning fireplaces and hardwood flooring throughout. Moravian tiles, a spiral staircase, areas of stonework on the walls and more grace the residence with a rustic, yet up-to-date, luxurious atmosphere.

On the property, an in-ground gunite pool, organic gardens, a professional horseshoe pit and more reside, in addition to a nearby stone path, which leads residents and visitors on a bridge across the compound property’s babbling brook to a secluded waterfront guest cottage. This small chalet-style residence situated in the property’s surrounding woods overlooks the brook and waterfall, offering a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and overall retreat-like living space.

“This property, which offers the ultimate New England tranquil retreat, is a true sanctuary,” said McManus. “Not only does this home embrace the wonderful natural qualities of Sherman, Connecticut, it is also conveniently located close to the New York border, allowing for easy access to highways and transportation. I am proud to be representing such a treasured property that presents so many opportunities to both its residents and lucky guests, especially during the summer months.”

A five-car garage with an above space for various potential uses, including a professional office, completes the property.
