Secluded Home In Norman Rockwellesque New England Setting
This beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home offers incredible panoramic views of the Housatonic River Valley. Set on a secluded 13 acres and abutting thousands of acres of conserved land, the house offers total privacy and seclusion, yet is only 15 minutes from the great shopping and restaurants of Sharon and Kent, Connecticut.
The home is great for entertaining and large families. The chef's kitchen is quite large and equipped with everything a gourmet chef could need, including Viking appliances with 2 ovens, gas and electric, plus a 6-burner gas stovetop. The dine-in kitchen seats 8 plus additional seating at the huge island. The property also includes not one but two Big Green Egg grills.
The dining area has a large farm table looking out over the valley with seating for 10. In addition, when the weather is nice, you'll want to dine outdoors on the beautiful screened-in porch. Twelve people can easily enjoy the outdoor dining area with incredible views.
The lodge-like living area has a large wood burning fireplace, multiple sitting areas and a large flatscreen TV.
The area offers tons of fun activities. A short 10 minute hike from the back porch takes you to the world famous Appalachian Trail. Plus, there are countless other hiking trails for all levels of ability. A 5 minute drive takes you to the Housatonic River where you can hire a guide and try your hand at amazing fly fishing or kayaking.
In the fall, the area offers unsurpassed leaf peeping. Simply admire the gorgeous fall foliage from your window or take a drive down Route 7 for the some of the best leaf peeping on the East Coast. If you enjoy fall colors, then this property is an ideal home base.
Just a few miles away is Ellsworth Farm, where you can pick your own apples, pumpkins and blueberries or try their corn maze and hay ride. Once the leaves are down and winter sets in, drive just 15 minutes to Mohawk Mountain for great East cost skiing.
