Overview

Sharon House Rental Photos and Description

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

Perched on a rise in the beautiful lower Berkshires of Litchfield County, this house is your ideal escape from city life! A modern house with a New England farmhouse feel, surrounded by lawn and flower beds, with green views from every window of this sun-filled cottage. Situated in the tri-corner region of NY, CT, and MA, it sits on a breezy rise overlooking hay fields, and is surrounded by 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 from New York City is either by car, or by Metro-North rail. Its a 15 minute drive to Wassaic station, the last stop on the Harlem line.

In the fall, the autumn foliage and sparkling blue skies of the season are in full display at this location. This listing is ideally located for visitors to the Hotchkiss School. For the intrepid, the Appalachian trail is very close for a pleasant day hike. Apple picking and berry picking or any local day activity is punctuated by cosy evenings at the fireplace or flatscreen TV in the living room.

Winter at the house takes "cozy" to another level. 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 in nearby southwest Massachusetts.

Besides Hotchkiss School (5 minutes), Kent (20 minutes) and Indian Mountain school (10 minutes) are also nearby. This home could not be more convenient for parents up for a weekend to combine rest and visiting with a 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 must do.

We hope to hear from you!

About Serge and Lannyl Ossorguine

Serge and Lannyl Ossorguine work in the arts and reside in Manhattan.

Serge and Lannyl Ossorguine purchased this house in 2008

Why Serge and Lannyl Ossorguine chose Litchfield County

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 away, but far enough. 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.

What makes this house unique

The house itself was built by a very energy conscious designer during the gas crisis years in the 70s. Insulated by the book, to augment electric heat 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.

Had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. The house is very nice, clean, comfortable and just enough privacy. We had some family over and there was plenty of room for everyone. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable that we immediately purchased the same mattress pad online as soon as we got home.

Would definitely rent again!

Right down the road from Lion Rock Farm

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house. There were 6 of us staying here for my son's wedding at Lion Rock, we were very comfortable here and we were able to host other family members before and after different wedding weekend events. We had yard games set up for kids and adults, this house is a must if your having an event at Lion Rock Farm.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3-week stay at this great getaway in Sharon - plenty of space, nice layout, simple and elegant furnishings, beautiful view from the living room windows and close to Sharon, Millterton and several other places with good restaurants and activities. The yard was the perfect amount of space for our kids to play and Mudge Pond was a good low-key swimming spot nearby. The house was more than enough room for 6 people. The hosts were very accommodating and provided some good ideas for restaurants and activities nearby. We look forward to staying again in the future.

We loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful weeklong stay! The owners communicated quickly and clearly - much appreciated. The location is secluded and beautiful - gorgeous view from the living room. The ceiling fans throughout were much appreciated as the week was warm. The home was clean and outfitted well for our needs. Everything was as described and the location was perfect in proximity to our daughter's wedding at Fairfield Farms.

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.
