With stunning views, irresistible amenities and 1,000+ acres of lush fields and mature forest, this Andreas Palladio inspired home epitomizes grandeur. Exquisitely designed by architect specializing in historic style homes, the limestone and stucco renaissance facade is replete with unique Palladian details of the commanding Serliana arch window and, floating above it, the five pane moon transit occuli. Upon entering the gated mile long drive that meanders through private fields, forest, the apple orchard, the cultivated white birch and fern groves you enter this Tuscan Villa’s copper beech lined, granite cobbled main courtyard. Inside you encounter tastefully appointed opulence from the home’s dramatically lit circulation galleries to its impressive foyer with the 2-story grand circular stair hall and dual floating staircases. The light filled and richly appointed rooms are intelligently designed to create a seamless flow and perfect blend of varying spaces. This home’s Kitchen is central to its Formal Dining Room, Outdoor Dining Terrace & Informal Dining Room with Inglenook with over-sized granite hearth; gracefully merging the ease of interior and exterior entertaining. Beyond this property’s 5 Bedroom, 4 Full and 5 Half-bath Main Palladian Home encompassed by private terraces, a screened European garden, a clay tennis court, and unforgettable long range vistas, this stately compound enjoys an excellent Horse Stable; a dedicated car collector’s garage, a custom built squash court; a 5 Bedroom, 3.5 bath 1860’s Greek Revival Farmhouse including Guest/Staff Quarters; an additional converted-barn Guest/Staff Home as well as an 18th Century farm house ready for restoration. Superb and acclaimed architectural design, unsurpassed vistas and unparalleled Connecticut acreage combine to create exclusive and rare elegance and privacy at this Italian-inspired villa in the heart of the Litchfield Hills.
