Stunning And Private Shingle Style Contemporary Colonial
Set on 6.47 private acres and bordered by hills and meadows, this setting features mature trees, stone fences, rock outcroppings and established gardens. It is the perfect country escape. The shingle style modern home was custom built by the current owner, and features superb craftsmanship. The interior features spacious, bright rooms with 9’ ceilings, 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, with three finished levels for plenty of room for extended family and guests. The living room has a wood burning fireplace and opens to a generous Trex deck and pergola. A large eat-in chef’s kitchen with granite countertops and custom cherry cabinetry, is adjacent to a cozy family room with built-in bookcases. The formal dining room with mahogany paneling is perfect for entertaining. The master bedroom with en suite bath has a walk-in closet and French doors that open to the balcony. The finished lower level has spacious guest quarters and a private entry. Additionally, there is a spacious office with full bath and galley kitchen which has served as a nanny suite or guest apartment.
The cedar shingle roof was new in 2015 and there is a whole house generator and attached 2 car garage. A huge bonus – the extraordinary barn-style workshop with vaulted ceiling, radiant heat floors and French doors—a possible art studio, party barn, or guesthouse.
All this with nearby Mohawk Mountain skiing, hiking trails, fishing, boating, and the many attractions of the Litchfield Hills. Less than two hours from Manhattan this turnkey home is ideal as a weekend retreat or for full time living.
