Charming Village Cottage In New Preston
This attractive and stylish cape-style cottage is within walking distance to the charming destination village of New Preston and a short bike ride to the town beach at beautiful Lake Waramaug. The home offers all the conveniences of in-town living yet is nestled in a quiet location on a level village street. The original house was built in 1925 and rebuilt in 2007 without sacrificing the vintage atmosphere and detailing.
The chic interiors encompass a large, sunny, center island granite kitchen, with propane range and farmhouse sink for the gourmet cook, a formal dining room with bay window, a beautiful living room with fireplace and a tucked away half bath, plus an audio/visual closet with pocket doors. On the upper level are three light-filled bedrooms and a grand master bath featuring a walk-in shower and a separate claw foot bathtub. The home’s lower level offers a spacious finished family room with an adjacent full bath and laundry – perfect for use as a media/recreation room or for spillover guests.
Many recent upgrades to the home include the addition of central air, a high tech security system, and a home entertainment system. All interiors and exteriors are freshly painted. The low taxes and easy access to nearby village shops, restaurants and lake amenities, make this an ideal pied a terre, full-time or weekend home.
New Preston is one of Litchfield County's most charming villages and is perched atop one spectacular waterfall nestled along the East Shore of beautiful Lake Waramaug. The village is filled with fine eateries and shops run by highly creative local people selling antiques, home & garden décor, clothing collections and culinary specialties.
The home’s beach rights to Lake Waramaug offers direct access to a lake that few other bodies of water in Connecticut can rival in its picturesque beauty and setting. In addition to the lake’s scenic vistas, Lake Waramaug offers a host of recreational activities: walking, biking, fishing, swimming, camping, and all types of boating.
