#1: Sophisticated Connecticut Georgian
It is not often that a home of this quality and character, designed by an internationally-recognized architect, and set on eight acres close to town comes on the market. This 15,000-square-foot stone Georgian is a rare opportunity to have the finest in architectural details and materials in a home that artfully combines sophisticated grandeur and expansive views of Putnam Lake with hardly another home in sight. The residence’s layout is a master class in symmetry, beautiful proportions, and––truly unique for a Georgian––the abundance of light. Each room has its own distinctive character achieved through the inspired mix of materials and surfaces, from the grand scale entrance hall, living room, and dining room, each with richly detailed plaster crown mouldings, to the family room with a curved wall of windows trimmed in pine to match the coffered ceiling beams. The house also includes a paneled library, a gourmet kitchen, a master bedroom suite with his-and-her sitting rooms and baths, three additional en suite bedrooms, a loft apartment, a sunroom, a home theater, a wine cellar, a billiard room, and a gym. The property features a gated entrance and long private drive through lush plantings to a large parking court with fountain. The sweeping terrace across the entire back of the home overlooks the gardens with extensive views of the lake. The listing agent is Barbara Brock Zaccagnini of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
