Clients who list their properties with us know that their homes will get the marketing exposure that they deserve. Case in point, two stunning residences now available for sale with Litchfield Hills Sotheby’s International Realty were recently selected by the television network Bravo to appear on its newest lifestyle show, Property Envy. This talk show-style series provides an ideal venue for positioning our listings before a far-reaching audience of fine property enthusiasts. In each episode, a panel of highly esteemed design, architecture and real estate professionals will introduce viewers to a range of luxury properties on the market all over the country. The panel then discusses the featured homes and determines which of them results in the highest level of property envy.
One residence chosen to arouse the envy of the Bravo team is a spectacular home on Candlewood Lake. This classic lake house in New Fairfield, Connecticut, was designed by Miriam Weinreb Lissak in 2003 with meticulous attention to quality and detail. The home has been recognized for its exceptional craftsmanship with numerous awards including the Home Building Industry Award for “Best New Old Home” in 2004. Offered at $8,950,000, the 8,553+ square-foot Victorian-style residence enjoys 12 acres of manicured grounds, with the largest private beach on Connecticut’s largest lake. The extraordinary design is evident in the living spaces, including a foyer with quartered oak hardwood floors, formal living room opening to a mahogany deck with Jacuzzi, and sunny kitchen with amazing artisanal tile work and views reaching out to the lake.
A sophisticated contemporary in Roxbury, Connecticut, will also be featured on the program. Designed by noted architect Anthony Ames, the home was honored with the American Institute of Architects Design Award in 1989. The carefully engineered design presents a dramatic exterior of architectural block and brick, with porcelain panels that incorporate expanses of glass. The home captures superb views of the natural nine-acre landscape that surrounds it, with beautiful meadows, lush woodland and stone walls. The striking interior spaces feature high end materials including oak floors, plastered walls, custom cabinetry and state-of-the-art mechanical systems. Offered at $4,400,000, this magnificent residence offers three bedrooms and four and a half baths with 3,321 square feet of living area. We are very excited to see the results of our collaboration with Bravo and look forward to the first season of Property Envy.
