WEEKENDER AND SUMMER RENTAL. CLOSE TO HOTCHKISS SCHOOL.

Sharon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Nestled in the beautiful lower Berkshires of Litchfield County, your complete escape from the city awaits! This property is a modern house with a New England farmhouse feel. A view of the peaceful surroundings is in every window in this sun filled peaceful home. Situated in the tri-corner region of NY, CT, and MA, it sits on a breezy rise overlooking hay fields, and is surrounded by landscaped gardens featuring a stand of pines and butternuts. The west-facing deck, living room, and master bedroom, overlook the sunset beyond the hay fields, with Indian Mountain defining the horizon. The trip here is a super-convenient journey from New York City either by car, or by Metro-North rail. The Harlem line is a 15 minute drive to Wassaic station, the last stop on that line.

The beauty of the autumn foliage and sparkling blue skies of the season are in full display at this location. The Hotchkiss School football stadium is minutes away, the Appalachian trail, apple picking and cosy evenings at the fireplace or flatscreen TV in the living room complete the picture for fall season weekenders.

Winter at the house is also equally wonderful. Enjoy resting indoors by the fireplace, while watching the snow fall all around. If you are a skier, within a 20-minute drive you will find skiing at Mohawk, and if you head north, Butternut, and Catamount are also a great weekend choices that are away from the crowds of the bigger ski areas.

Hotchkiss School (5 minutes). Kent (20 minutes) and Indian Mountain school (10 minutes) are within a short drive away. If you are parents of boarding school kids, this home could not be more convenient for a weekend to combine rest and visiting with your son or daughter.

The house features a newly renovated kitchen with modern stainless appliances, granite counters, and a 30 bottle wine cooler. Anderson windows are everywhere, wood floors and two newly renovated marble tiled baths. Cable service with a widescreen tv, broadband internet and WiFi keeps you connected if this is what you need.

We hope to hear from you!

Serge and Lannyl Ossorguine purchased this house in 2008

We like Litchfield County and have many friends with homes here. The County has a history of resisting development and preserving historic land and architecture. We like this. The conveniences are there, but somehow, tastefully done. If we ever need the big box stores, Torrington is not too far. We love the easy commute from New York City by train (Metro-North, Wassaic), which is a huge plus for a family with a many-layered schedule. The drive up from New York is very pleasant. Its not a parking lot on Fridays, like roads leading to the Hamptons.

The movie house in Millerton is a great place to see new releases, with two screens that are generally 'one for the kids' and 'one for the adults'. There is a great topographical diversity to the landscape; the Housatonic Valley, the lakes, the rolling farmland that suddenly reveals breathtaking vistas as you pass through it.

The house itself was built by a very energy conscious designer during the gas crisis years in the 70s. Insulated very efficiently, there are 3 swedish wood burning stoves in the bedrooms, and a fireplace in the living room, which very effectively augment the ceiling radiated electric heating system. Lots of light pours into the house through many Anderson windows. All wood floors everywhere except marble in the baths and terra cotta in the kitchen. A previous owner was a landscape architect. The gardens include apple trees, pear trees and islands with decorative grasses, perennials, a bonzai and some aromatics.

GREAT STAY!!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our family time here! It was great for our kids to play safely outside in the large yard where the parents and grandparents could see them (and the peaceful views!) easily out of the many windows. We found it tastefully decorated and had all the comforts of home. It even had kids' books, videos and balls for the kids to enjoy. The beds were by far the most comfortable beds we have slept on while away from home. The space was more than adequate to accommodate a group of 7 for several days, the kitchen cabinets were well stocked with cookware, it had a full size washer & dryer and comfortably sized bathrooms. The driveway entrance was difficult to find, especially at night, but it's not a deal breaker.

The only thing we would change is to come when the weather is in the 70's or below. Since it didn't have central air, it got quite warm during our last two days/nights (up to mid90's). The fans provided did help some.

Overall, we'd definitely return to this lushly-surrounded and well-thought-out vacation home.

LOVELY WEEKEND ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I so enjoyed our weekend in this beautiful home. The house is very private and set back a nice distance from the road. All the windows flooded the rooms with light and fall air. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated--a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! This was our first experience with a private rental (necessitated by a mistaken double-booking at a local inn that, thankfully, was discovered two weeks before our visit). The owner was very gracious and welcoming in our correspondance, the house was so much better than a room at an inn, the convenience of the well-appointed kitchen was a delight, and the discovery of a great selection of DVDs a bonus! (We chose Shakespeare in Love, of course.)

Though our trip was just for two, the house would easily accomodate a larger family with two twin beds in the second upstairs bedroom. Also, as the third bedroom with a queen bed is located downstairs and attaches to the second bathroom, it's equally ideal for grandparents to come along, or for two couples to travel together. For active families, a small soccer field (with goal nets) runs on the side of the wooded property.
The quality of area restaurants was another pleasant surprise. I'd highly recommend Giulia's and Pastorale (where we enjoyed our French dinner on a romanticlly-lit, grape-vine-sheltered porch). We had never visited this area of Connecticut before and were charmed on our bike ride past beautiful old farm houses and quaint towns.

THOMAS KINKADE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home to recharge and enjoy the surrounding hamlets of CT, NY, and MA! The home is large, clean, fully stocked and very comfortable! Our family of 4 stayed here on two different occasions while visiting our son at an area school. The boys played touch football in the yard by day and watched TV at night. Nearby towns were filled with interesting shops and the scenery was fantastic - like a Thomas Kinkade painting! Each morning, the glorious sunrise greeted us through the upstairs windows and we watched the ducks and geese heading south. While enjoying our coffee on the porch, a farmer on his tractor would ease by on his way to the fields. This very charming home can easily accomodate the entire family and the location couldn't be better: Sharon, CT: 5 minutes away; Lakeville, CT: 5-7 minutes away; Millerton, NY: 7-10 minutes away: Amenia, NY: 10 minutes away; Salisbury, CT: 10 minutes away.
