I'm a sales director at an art gallery in New York who enjoys the sophistication of New York and the excitement of travels, but who needs the restorative effect of the countryside.
Why Owner chose Litchfield
Being a fulltime resident of New York City, I needed a place that would offer the ideal counterbalance to the city's frenetic pace and attitude. My place is in a tranquil, safe, beautiful location where I feel that I can get away from it all; no traffic, no humming air conditioners, no sirens, no honking taxis.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The house has total privacy. It's placed in 7 very private acres on a road with almost no traffic. The only noise one hears is the chirping of birds or the crickets at sundown. Lie down on a large rock by the pond and listen to the frogs and stare at the star-studded sky, walk in the woods or on the surrounding hills. Its 3 minutes away from grocery stores, restaurants, charming Bantam Cinema, lakes, hiking, river-rafting, antiquing. The house has one story, simplifying mobility and adding to its free-flowing floor plan. Light and airiness abound.

What a fun place!
We had a delightful family gathering for Thanksgiving. We especially loved the library and dining room. I'd love to go back if we're up that way again. Pablo was quite attentive.
Charming and gorgeous property
The pictures don't do this house justice. It sits on a serene 7 acres. We spent most of our time just drinking coffee/wine, reading and hanging out with friends outside. The house itself is charming and full of big, beautiful windows that bring the outside in. We had a fabulous time and will stay again!
Beyond our Wildest Dreams!
Pablo's house exceeded all our wildest expectations. The house was perfect for us...gracious, charming, comfortable! Because of Pablo's artistic/aesthetic sense, the house was almost a feast for the eyes, without being showy or intimidating. It was perfect for our family, myself, my husband, our son and his girlfriend and my cousin and his wife...and off and in a couple of friends, lucky enough to come visit us. The setting helped us all relax and enjoy being together, whether we were taking walks on the beautiful property, or the lovely countryside, watching movies, listening to music, having wonderful cookouts on the refreshingly old fashioned grill, or poking around the charming nearby towns.
Only one possible suggestion and this I say with some hesitation, would be the addition of wifi. For those of us who needed to do a little work, it made this a bit challenging...not impossible but a little challenging. One other tiny thing is that some kind of work surface, ie a desk in one of the bedrooms would be helpful, again, for those unfortunate souls who can't tear themselves completely away from work!
Otherwise, I can't think of a thing I would change and we are all most appreciative to Pablo for sharing his beautif house with us...and can't wait to go back!!!!
Thank you for loving "Casalegre".
And thanks to your suggestions and the requests of others, the house now has high-speed Wifi and a desk in the library!
We can't wait to have you back!
Charming, Well appointed Place to Stay
Pablo's home was a wonderful place to stay for a small reunion with my girlfriends from college. We all chose this home to celebrate our 40th birthday together. We went out to eat, explored the farmer's market, shopped at antique stores, and enjoyed wine and great conversation in the living room and in the side yard. The space is inviting, yet spacious enough to seek a moment of quiet if that is what you needed. It is a stone's throw/short drive from almost anything you desire, and the location is safe, quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and hope to be back again. Pablo, the owner, was super helpful with tips on restaurants and activities.
Bantam/ Litchfield is civilized country-living. Outstanding restaurants reviewed by the NY Times, horse-back riding, golfing, antiquing, swimming and kayaking in jaw-dropping Bantam and Waramaug Lakes are available to those who value the pleasures of life and the bliss of privacy.
