New Fairfield, Conn. (January 18, 2021) – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm’s Litchfield Brokerage completed a $3,500,000 property sale on Candlewood Lake, the highest residential sale on the lake in over seven years. The firm handled both sides of the deal. The previous highest sale on Candlewood Lake closed in September 2013.
The property, located at 124 Lake Drive South in New Fairfield, Conn., was represented by Kathryn Clair and her daughter Kathryn Clair Bassett, both based in the firm’s Washington, Conn., office. The buyer was represented by William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty agent Irit Granger, who is based in the Kent, Conn. office.
The 4,500 square-foot year-round weekend house, known as Artreehoose, overlooks the lake and was designed by the Della Valle Bernheimer firm of architects. The home has four bedrooms and four full baths, a Schiffini kitchen and a grand living room with 20-foot ceilings, monumental sliding glass panels and two floating staircases. The property has received extensive media coverage in publications such as Architectural Record, ArchDaily and The Lux Home.
“Artreehoose is an iconic property with its stunning views of Candlewood Lake as well as the surrounding trees and foliage. Featuring outdoor dining areas and 10-foot sliding glass doors that blend the interior spaces with the outdoors, this unique property is like living in a luxury treehouse,” said Kathryn Clair. “I’m so pleased that the property will now pass on to a new owner to appreciate the design of this house to its full extent.”
