Only 10 minutes from the train from NYC! Driving in the main gate of this elegant, classic New England compound is like stepping into a living Currier & Ives homestead- replete with gracious 4-5 bedroom Eyebrow Colonial home with many original features, oversized 6 over 6 windows, painted pastoral mural over the fireplace in the formal dining room, front living room with fireplace and library /parlor overlooking a serene and tranquil lake , and hardwood floors and detailed moldings. The best part is that the renovating has been done to this 1786 gem, so the colonial charm comes with all the modern conveniences you need: central air, warm and inviting custom kitchen w/ glowing pine floors and counter Viking stove, tiled baths, main bath with skylight and picture window, toasty new R30 insulation in 2011, dual fuel furnace, (Keeping the house at 75 degrees all winter, the oil bill from February 2011 to January 2012?= ZERO!) Freak October blizzard? No heat problems in this house!!!!), high speed internet available, 3 minutes to the quintessentially New England Town Green, (so few of which are left!) shops, hospital and library, easy train commute to NYC :10 minutes to trains to NYC,( yet a world away), 3 car garage, generator house, pheasant house, Dairy barn converted to studio/ gym/ party barn, and what Christmas in Connecticut would be complete without a skating pond and open fields for the sleigh? And it has all the horse essentials you need: 3-4 stall horse stable with oak stalls, matted floors, lush pasture with matted (over soft, well-draining sand) run-in, dry paddock/ lunge ring and no need to trailer- you can ride right from the property to hours and hours of spectacular trails though fields, woods, streams, hills with breathtaking views and hideaway valleys, deer, wild turkeys and more- and minutes from the Millbrook hunt country (without getting soaked with New York taxes!). Ample open space for a cross-country jump course on your own land.
The house is on 6 acres, but it might as well be 6000, because of the abundance of conservation land around you- enjoy the buffer zone without having to purchase, maintain or pay taxes on it! And take an annual vacation every year with the money you are not paying in taxes, because all of this is in the lowest tax pocket for hundreds of miles.
