We bought this home as an escape from New York City. I was raised in the area, so this has always been home for me. We started renting in Cornwall in 1998 and after returning to the East Coast and having spent several summers renting in the Hamptons, we decided that while the beaches were nice we really wanted to be in the country. Since, no matter where I have lived, my heart has always been connected to the Litchfield Hills, I suggested trying a summer in Connecticut... we never looked back.

Art purchased this house in 2005

When we finally made the decision to buy a country home, we looked in Litchfield County, Upstate New York and the Berkshires in Massachusetts. Every place we saw we compared to Cornwall and ultimately realized that Cornwall had everything that we wanted. We love the bucolic setting, the rolling hills, farms and farm stands, and generally being in a place that feels comfortable and enduring.

Once we became solely focused on Cornwall we looked at everything that was for sale. We knew that we wanted something with privacy and light. When we walked into the house we knew it was the place for us. The living room with its cathedral ceiling, floor to ceiling stone fireplace and walls of glass sold us on the house. It is a wonderful spot to sit and relax and watch the seasons. There is nothing like the living room while it is snowing outside and fire roaring in the fireplace. The screened porch is also an ideal place to sit on a summer night and listen to the frogs in the pond and the cicadas.

One of our biggest concerns about spending time in Connecticut was that we would ultimately get bored with the country. Happily, to our surprise, we actually found that we did more in Connecticut than we ever did at the beach - biking, hiking, beaches, restaurants, Tanglewood, shopping, antiques, etc. All without the crowds and traffic.

Gorgeous Vacation in the Foothills of the Berkshires

This property is absolutely fabulous. The house is gorgeous and well appointed; it is a modern home that reflects the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. Everything is exactly as it is described in the photos and description. Event though it was early fall, we were able to use the heated pool and hot tub. I would recommend this place to anyone that desires an elegant country experience. It was so fantastic that we didn't want to leave....just know that it is a 15 drive to shops and restaurants. We would go back again. Great sushi at the Boathouse in Salisbury.
