Elegantly Renovated C. 1830 Antique With Pool
This gracious antique colonial, C. 1830, is beautifully sited on 5.6 picturesque country acres just off a designated scenic road in the rural destination town of Sherman, Connecticut. Stylishly renovated with two fireplaces, a beautiful butternut wood library, updated kitchen and baths, large screened porch with built-ins, and a stone terrace leading to elegant gardens and a freeform gunite pool.
Striking architectural details can be seen throughout the home, from Juliet balconies off each of the three bedrooms, to a decorative portico flanking the handsome front door, a main level office with built-in shelving, desks and file drawers and multiple French doors leading out into the truly spectacular gardens. A partially finished lower level with wet bar offers another great place to entertain and from which to enjoy easy access to and from the pool.
Stone steps connect the south facing stone patio to a gently sloping lawn above where there is a private hilltop overlook over scenic Glen Brook. There is a detached two car garage, an additional parking area for oversized vehicles and a separate .80-acre parcel on the opposite side of the road. A true New England beauty: elegant and country comfortable, warm and inviting, and presenting an atmosphere that inspires and welcomes! Includes beach rights to Candlewood Lake, and located just 90 minutes from Manhattan and 15 minutes to Metro North trains.
