A postcard-perfect, snowy evening graces the front cover of Cabela’s highly acclaimed Christmas catalogue with New England’s undeniable cheery charm and scenic setting. The showcased photo focuses on the central barn of Saddle Ridge Farm—a structure that not only binds together this beloved community in which our firm frequently lists properties, but also depicts the true essence of the holiday season in Connecticut.
Established by Dick Cabela in 1961, Cabela’s is the world’s foremost outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear. The business is widely known for its catalog, which includes nearly 100 different issues per year, focusing on various outdoor activities such as archery, fly-fishing and boating, which are all popular Litchfield County pursuits. Cabela’s catalogs are delivered to all 50 states and 125 countries.
The barn, located in the Saddle Ridge Farm neighborhood of Kent, was featured front and center in this year’s latest issue. Kent sales agent Judy Perkins, a local expert who has lived in the area for 30 years, describes the historic structure as being the focal point of the community, where only 15 properties on small plots of land surrounded by over 100 acres of protected land reside. The catalog subsequently highlights this favorable area of Litchfield County, which is the current location of two of the firm’s listings that are now for sale. 9 Conboy Heights, a Cape-style home that rests nearby to the farm, as well as a Colonial residence at 4 Lee Circle both enjoy sweeping views of the open acres and the beautiful conserved land of Saddle Ridge Farm. Living here also permits residents to take advantage of the farm’s amenities, which include access to shared tennis courts and of course, a serene atmosphere faultlessly fit for enthusiasts of nature and the great outdoors—an environment with which Cabela’s is quite familiar.
