Elegance And Country Living
This property defines easy elegance and country living. Located just minutes from the bucolic hamlet of West Cornwall, famous for its historic covered bridge spanning the Housatonic River, it is set atop a hillside, with 5 gracefully landscaped acres and sweeping views. A truly transporting home.
Originally built in the 50’s, the house was completely renovated and expanded in 2002. Its design and thoughtful layout were executed by a local craftsman known for green building. Whether in the formal living room, large bright kitchen, or den with stone fireplace, every window looks out onto the tranquil, natural setting. A formal dining room offers relaxed, al fresco-like dining with its 3 walls of windows. The home’s western side is filled with windows that open to spectacular, ever-changing, sunset views.
The master wing on the first floor has a study and a large bedroom with two bathrooms, each with a dressing area. Upstairs, in a treehouse-like setting, is a large, comfortable, common room with three guest rooms and a full bath. The walk-out lower level has a game room, study, large bedroom, full bath, and walls of windows, as well as ample storage. There is a 3-car garage and guest house, which has a soaring ceiling upstairs and a full bedroom and bath downstairs, perfect as a studio space or guest apartment. Outside, the park-like grounds are professionally designed with stone walls, rolling lawns and stunning, mature, specimen plantings. The in-ground, heated pool is nestled perfectly into the hillside, and a tennis court completes the fun. This home has it all!
Cornwall offers a quiet, engaged community, with a wonderful farmers market, the Mohawk Ski Area, hiking, fly fishing, river rafting and plenty of outdoor activities. It oozes country charm and is also home to many city sophisticates. The Metro North train to Grand Central is 20 minutes away, while the 2 hour drive from New York City and close proximity to area private schools make for an ideal location. Culture, the arts, excellent food, and recreation abound in these Litchfield Hills / Southern Berkshires, but relaxing with family and friends on this inviting property may be your favorite option!
