Large 6000 square foot living space in restored barn. If you like open, airy loft living, this is your property in the country. 2 large master bedrooms, one with Jacuzzi, 1 smaller bedroom and 3 unique bedroom/baths each located in a converted silo. Large kitchen with professional appliances, dining area, fireplace area, living room. 600 square foot deck overlooks a 24 acre private lake. Gunite pool. The property has many trails for hiking (including a walking trail steps from the house), and there is the opportunity (under a separate arrangement) to participate in a working cattle ranch featuring grass fed beef.
Located 5 miles from the Town of Litchfield, the property is in a very private area and is surrounded by 2000 protected acres of the Waterbury Water Company. Litchfield is a short (8-10 min) drive away and features numerous bars and restaurants, museums, nature preserves, antique shops, yoga studios and general sight seeing opportunities.
This is the perfect spot to go with family and friends to enjoy the country and bask in the outdoors or inside the spacious barn.
Although the barn sleeps 12 people, we are not looking to rent to a large group of unrelated people-ie a 'share' type situation or a party house. The person who is contracting to rent the property must be at least 27 years old.
The barn is located on a 700 acre estate/working farm. We raise grass fed beef, and pastured pork and poultry. For an additional fee, we can offer a farm experience depending on the season at an extra cost to be determined by the type of experience desired and the number of people involved. Meat is available for purchase down the road and there is a grill at the house.
There is air conditioning in 5 of the 6 bedrooms, and the other bedrooms remain cool most night and have fans. The slight elevation of the Litchfield Hills makes for cooler nights in the summer than other nearby areas, e.g. coastal Connecticut and New York. There is no air conditioning in the main living spaces of the house and we have never felt it necessary. For the occasional summer heat wave, there is a pool.
The house is also near the well-known Litchfield Daffodils, a twelve-acre planting of narcissus which bloom each Spring and attract admirers from near and far.
A note on Weddings & Parties:
We do not host outdoor parties or weddings in the backyard of this property. Small indoor gatherings are possible - please contact us for details.
If you are interested in an outdoor wedding or party, we have other locations nearby on the estate which are suitable for tents and outdoor events. There is a large field 1/4 mile away, which has electric and water, and there are several other spots around the estate which would be suitable for wedding photos or a small ceremony (e.g. the private lakes, additional fields, etc).
If you are interested in hosting a wedding or party, please note that we have a 1-week minimum rental from June 15-September 9. We would require you to purchase additional liability insurance (please contact us for details).
