On the lower level is a large family room that opens to a covered patio. The 30’ pool is enclosed for year round enjoyment. A third floor loft in the cupola has three-sides of windows and boasts the best views. The acreage is adorned with perennial plantings and flowering fruit trees. The pond has been stocked with sunfish and smallmouth bass. The property is located in an area of fine estates and close to the villages of Kent and New Preston. Lake Waramaug, golf, tennis and hiking trails are all nearby. The original owner was William Steig, illustrator, cartoonist and author of beloved children’s books, notably Shrek. This property is the antithesis of Shrek’s swamp, rather more like the Land of Far, Far Away where everyone lives happily ever after.
