Cuddle up on the couch or armchair in the living area in front of the cable TV. Turn on a movie and leave it on as you make your way to the other side of the kitchen counter behind the living area and into the kitchen.
Compact, but fully equipped with the most modern equipment, the kitchen is a great place to gather with your loved ones to cook a delicious meal. Settle down around the 2-person dining table to enjoy your meals. Additional seating is available at the counter with 3 stools.
When the sun is shining, head outside to the beautifully laid out and maintained yard, where you’ll find an outdoor dining set. A quiet pond is to the rear and a small private country day school is about 500 feet to the north of the yard. To the southeast is a magnificent horse farm surrounded by beautiful homes. With so many scenic surroundings, the yard is sure to be your favorite spot to relax during sunny days! Even try roasting some marshmallows at night!
Once the sun has set and the stars are sparkling above, retreat back inside the home to throw your clothes in the convenient laundry machines and rinse off in the large, airy and well-lit bathroom. Afterwards, make your way to the bedroom, which offers a comfortable queen-sized bed and a cable TV, so you can watch your favorite shows before drifting off to sleep. Additional sleeping can be found on the pullout couch in the living area.
Situated in the midst of the stunning Western Connecticut foliage belt, this Newtown home places you in the perfect spot for scenic adventures.
Additionally, the home is just a half hour from Yale University, 15 minutes from Candlewood Lake, and is surrounded by miles and miles of byways through beautiful old New England towns with their magnificent colonials and churches.
Each season here in Newtown provides its own particular charm! During the wintertime, shred some fresh powder at one of the nearby ski facilities, like Mohawk Mountain in Cornwall, or Butternut Basin Ski Area in Great Barrington. Save those summer days for lounging on the Long Island Sound beaches, just a half hour from the home. Fall time is ideal for driving northwest Connecticut’s scenic byways, or hiking at nearby state parks, like Huntington State Park, Southford Falls and Kettletown, where the colors are sure to take your breath away.
If you’re in the mood for sports, Newtown has many tennis courts and reasonably priced, quality golf courses nearby, so be sure to bring your racquets and clubs! Additionally, Newtown has an elegant and well-equipped commercial fitness/rec center located near the Town Hall. Here, you can stay true to your workout routine!
The home is also just a short walk from a small deli, liquor and general store, and just a half mile from an Italian restaurant that provides take-out, as well as dine-in, so you’ll have numerous options within walking distance whenever you’re not in the mood for cooking.
