Description

Twelve impressive acres welcome you to this delightful country compound. A unique offering with awe-inspiring grounds is outfitted with 2 ponds, a Cape-style primary residence and a charming guest cottage. The welcoming main home offers an enclosed front porch, formal living & dining rooms, eat-in kitchen, skylight adorned sunroom and a convenient first-floor full bathroom. Beautiful chestnut moldings, trim work and doors retain the character and old-world charm of the home. An upper level hosts two large bedrooms, a full bath, a large hall walk-in closet, and unheated attic space. The guest cottage, just under 500 sf, offers the potential for a studio, sweet in-law apartment, rental opportunity, or an Air B&B option. Serene surroundings with large sweeping lawns, garnished with fruit and maple trees, lend themselves to this ultimate private country retreat bordered on 2 sides by Southbury land trust. Meander along the banks of the two private ponds offering recreational opportunities: canoe, kayak, swim, fish for bass, or delight in a glimpse of the resident Great Heron. There is the possibility for an in-ground pool, extensive gardens, garages/barn/stables. The guest cottage and shed are being sold in "as is condition". This property has first cut subdivide ability (buyer to do due diligence) This unique offering is sited within 2 short hours of NYC and minutes to the town center. If you are in search of a one-in-a-kind opportunity-look no further! Showings to begin on 9/4
