Known affectionately as Hermitswood, the home is an 10,000 Sq Ft award winning estate sitting on 8.4 majestic acres in the historic Taunton area of Newtown, CT. Some of its original details date back to the early 1900's as part of an early artist & musician's colony. A 2018 addition and renovation added 6,000 Sq Ft, designed by Charles Hilton Architects in the French Norman style. The property features two gated entrances, numerous garden vignettes. Bespoke seating areas offer moments of privacy... and quiet. The front courtyard features a French Country fountain. These aspects in addition to two sets of grand bluestone steps that cascade to the pool area build upon the scale and appropriate grandeur of the lawns. The home features Connecticut's second natural, 'non-chemical' pool that measures a staggering 30 x 95' of swimming area, in addition to multiple pool-side patios, and lily pond. For nature lovers, the pool area and adjacent regeneration planting zone, invites unique species of dragon flies, frogs, bird life and herons. In 2015 it was both awarded by the CT chapter of Landscape Architects and received First Price in landscape design bestowed by CT Cottages and Gardens. This is truly a property not to be missed!
