One of New England’s finest estates - situated on 54 acres in Washington, Connecticut with far reaching westerly views.

Designed by internationally renowned Fairfax & Sammons, this Palladian Villa epitomizes genteel country living. A private driveway winds through woodlands and meadows peppered with native mountain laurel before a breathtaking reveal. The first breathtaking views are of open fields and in the far distance; the brick house is suddenly visible– a tableau that evokes the Scottish countryside.

At the motor court, the eye’s gaze is torn between the mature hedge of Hornbeam and the parterre garden. Entering the garden courtyard is a moment of bliss where landscape architecture has been elevated to an art form. Built around a limestone fountain with sundial designed by the home’s architect, the four sections of the parterre garden are woven with mature trained boxwood, barberry and juniper in a “knot” pattern. At one end of the courtyard, an outdoor fireplace is nestled beneath a wisteria arbor – the perfect setting for afternoon tea or romantic dinner.

The 650sf summer house is composed of windows and doors that open to the gardens. Inside, one can take in the sun and gardens amongst glass, a murmuring fountain, and stone floors. The summer house is fully appointed with central heating, cooling and humidity control.
