We are pleased to present this extremely rare opportunity to own74 plus 78 acres of verdant fields and woods with breathtaking views in Sherman, CT. Additional acres can be combined.
Perched atop the sprawling grounds is a newly constructed, modern loft farm residence whose exterior and interior architecture marry elegantly a sophisticated home and the surrounding pastorale outdoors. Soaring cathedral ceilings, floor-to-ceiling picture windows that perfectly frame the sublime country vista outside, and the abundance of natural stone, wood and steel finishes throughout the interior lend this 7,000 sq. ft. mansion its bucolic atmosphere, airiness and warmth. The home consists of six luxurious bedrooms, seven sumptuous full marble baths, a recreation/family room and a theater room. The open floor plan allows unencumbered flow between the double-height living room, the spacious dining, and a handsome, modern, gourmet kitchen with custom walnut millwork, Miele appliances, exquisite yellow marble peninsula and granite countertop. The 7” wide floors and trim are made of white oak. Enormous sliding glass walls in the great room and main level bedroom open onto the Grand Terrace on the main level, while the glass walls of two bedrooms and the recreation room on the lower level provide access to a lower level terrace. All overlook the grand lawn with breathtaking open countryside views, and the resplendent stable and quaint modular staff quarters in the periphery. Other amenities include a laundry room, a commercial security vault, central heat and air conditioning, radiant heated floors (first floor, basement and bathrooms), and a backup generator. The fully equipped stable accommodates 11 horses. Additionally, the insulated utility room has a brand new slab, radiant heated floor and an upgraded electrical panel.
The house was also built with easy future expansion in mind. So for those looking to create a larger home, it can easily be done. This includes plans for an indoor and outdoor pool, which the owners are happy to share with prospective purchasers, too.
The property is comprised of 25 acres of fields and 127 acres of woods. It shares a pond with a neighboring property. Land Trusts surround it on three sides, which prevent those areas from future development. It is also subject to Public Act 490 that keeps real estate taxes low. It has no conservation easements and is ideal for agricultural usage and/or as equine property, a serene country escape or corporate retreat.
