Description

"Spring Hill"- Delightful, whimsical and enchanting 1929 Arts & Crafts style English cottage situated privately on 4.8 bucolic acres with gated entry to adjoining 4 acres of Redding Land Trust meadows. This storied home was built by celebrated artist Lizabeth Clifton Hunter (note her watercolor at the foot of the stairs). Sublime attention to detail abounds inside and out of this truly one-of-a-kind country estate. The exquisitely landscaped grounds feature peaceful outdoor enclaves including stone patios, balconies, the stunning pool grotto with dramatic stone face backdrop, and "Palais Poulet”: the playful hillside chicken coop compound. It's impossible to know where to feast your eyes in the exceptional main home showcasing hand hewn exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, built-ins, 3 fireplaces, and true artistry throughout the 2-story sunken living room, both formal dining and casual breakfast rooms, wet bar, dazzling gallery, and 3 welcoming bedroom suites. The compound also offers the detached 3-car garage with potting shed and regal clock tower. Of note: wood roof; leaded glass windows; radiant heated kitchen and breakfast room floors; heated outdoor steps to the driveway; copper leaders/gutters; generator; electric deer fence and cattle guard; plus top location on scenic road across from protected Aspetuck River land, yet just 65 miles to Midtown. Negotiable option to purchase furnishings and accessories.
