Our one-of-a-kind renovated barn sits on 5 pristine acres and is located 3 miles from the centers of Washington Depot and Litchfield, classic, unspoiled towns first inhabited in the 1700s. Both towns and surrounding areas have retained their original charm while at the same time offering several elegant restaurants, shops, and destinations.
Our home is not viewable from the street and sits at the top of a hill 1/2 acre in from the sidestreet on which our driveway begins. The environment is extremely quiet and private and borders two working farms, one of which affords opportunities to interact with friendly horses.
The renovated barn is a sprawling triplex moved from its original location in 1987. There are two open and bright living and dining areas (the Great Room) with a granite fireplace, 8 floor to ceiling windows that face South and East, and a fully equipped, modern kitchen. The dining room table seats 10 and overlooks a wrap around deck with automated phantom screens and can accommodate up to 25 guests for seating, lounging, or dining. The ensuite master bedroom/bath on the main floor is directly accessible to the deck and has floor to ceiling door and windows with beaming sunlight during the day. The bathroom contains carrerra marble floors, Kohler fixtures, and a walk in 4-head shower with a view of the pool. Two guest bedrooms on the second floor and a third sun room in the silo are each equipped with queen size beds and ample storage space and privacy. The guest bathroom upstairs has a claw tub and walk in shower with multiple shower heads and excellent water pressure. The pool and adjoining hot tub are situated just paces from the back deck.
The furniture is contemporary, modern, and comfortable. There is a Blue Ray Player, and access to 250 Direct TV channels on the televisions in both the Great Room and the master bedroom.
No pets. Not available for weddings nor events.

Steve Debow purchased this farmhouse in 2010
Our best friends purchased vacation property five years ago and we have visited frequently. We immediately appreciated the tranquility that the area provided and fell in love with our farmhouse the first time we visited it. Only 100 miles from Manhattan, the area is perfect for a week day, weekend, or summer getaway.
Serenity and solitude, nature, participation in a diverse community of local residents and adventurous vacationers, reading, biking, hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, swimming, foliage, skiing, sledding, magnificent dining, adventure, and relaxation.
What a beautiful piece of heaven! My sister and her family have throughly enjoyed your wonderful home and found it to be so warm, welcoming, comfortable and spotless! It's a perfect retreat from the craziness of life. Thank you for offering such a treasure, hidden in the Litchfield Hills!
