This stunning 1806 federal colonial estate house is set back from the quiet rolling tree-lined country road in upper Merryall, only 80 miles from Manhattan. Distinctive features include wide plank chestnut floors, exposed hand-hewn chestnut beams, 9' ceilings, 6 fireplaces, plus an original beehive oven. The 1.88 acres have a historic gabled roof barn, mature trees and are surrounded by protected unbuildable land. To complement the original stone walls, a former owner carried out a wonderful vision: rocks and some massive slabs are artistically landscaped as tiered seating and meditation areas around a miniature pond. Located a short walk to Nostrand trail, a 7-minute drive to New Preston's antique shops, wine bar and café, and the Northville food market, 8 minutes to Lake Waramaug, and 12 minutes to downtown New Milford. Move in and continue the loving restoration of this home with your style and creative touch. Some of the rooms may be ideal to configure as a separate wing for a master suite or guest area utilizing an existing private access stairway.

    Well. It is in my much loved Litchfield County and is surrounded by protected land, the existence of which is quite appealing. I think it’s just a bit further along “loving restoration” wise than I would choose. Maybe if I got to see the barn’s interior….

      I live in Litchfield county! It’s such a lovely area, I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
      Do you currently live in Litchfield county (hello neighbor!) or are you loving it from afar?

      It looks like this house is only about 10 miles from the Elephants Truck flea market–I haven’t been there in many years but it was always a fun way to spend a Sunday morning! 🙂

        Loving from afar. I went to Camp Birchwood on Beach St and then my parents had a vacation rental, from Ted Benjamin back when he was farming along Beach St.The address was RFD2 Goshen. Ted let me drive his old Farmall tractor and gave me odd jobs, Let me milk cows, bale hay, etc. Many happy hours swimming in Dog Pond. Great, great memories. Attended Wamogo my Freshman year.

          Those are such wonderful memories to have!!
          I was too scared to go away to camp but my cousins went to Birchwood.

          I don’t know much about Goshen other than the fair but, I had a friend who “disappeared” after middle school and years later, I found out that she ended going to Wamogo!

          I spent most of my childhood in the Barkhamsted/New Hartford area, now I live closer to Litchfield.

          It makes me happy to hear that you think so fondly of Litchfield County!

  2. What a beautiful house, and a reasonable price for so much square footage in such great condition! I love the wallpapered panels under the windows. I also had no idea anything in Connecticut could be that close to Manhattan!

    Reminds me of Martha Stewert’s house Turkey Hill in Westport, CT. Lovely.

    This is a beautiful old house with incredible character and bones. I guess this is why I was so surprised to see the nicely updated kitchen!

    My kinda house..! I love the way it sits back from the road and command-like on the hill. I wonder if it ever had a name? The old iron oven door is marvelous and it is great they haven’t “refinished” the floors. Let’s just give them a good scrubbing and see what we got before, MAYBE…a light oiling.
