The location of Cliffview Farmhouse is its best feature - Barndoor Hills Road, is one of Granby’s designated “scenic roads”. The property is surrounded by the 4,000 acre McLean Game Refuge, which features, the amazing East Barn Door Hill Overlook and the West Barndoor Preserve, a spectacular vertical cliff face which serves as the backdrop to the Cliffview Farmhouse. The house is a part of the Valkyrie Stables, a prestigious boarding and riding facility which is in the heart of Granby’s “Horse Country”!
The home is a late 19th century, 4 bedroom farmhouse, with a newer contemporary interior design. The open floor plan offers a gourmet granite kitchen (with Viking range), a dining area, and two informal sitting rooms. The front door offers access to the quintessential “farmhouse” front porch! The rear of the home features a large, open and sunny pool table room next to the family room with flat screen TV. An entry foyer has a large coat closet and powder room.
The bedrooms are located on the second floor along with 2 full baths. There is even a finished 3rd-floor walk-up attic with lots more potential for extra guests. The home features central air and a warm water heating system.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, gas range, deep gourmet sink, and a deluxe refrigerator/freezer. The granite counters provide space for 6 bar stools and are great for informal gatherings. Cookware, dinnerware, silverware and utensils are furnished.
The exterior grounds offer a covered rear patio with a huge gas grill and picnic table. The walkway leads to a beautiful in-ground pool in season. The views from the pool are stunning, from the cliff to the equestrian grazing pastures.
Granby is an up-scale rural Hartford community with great restaurants, thousands of acres of hiking trails, some of the best waterfalls in Connecticut and great family owned farm stands.
