Litchfield County Showpiece, Roxbury, Connecticut


Offered at $8,900,000

As you enter the voluminous space, an army of exposed posts and beams heralds the heart of the house: the towering living room and rustic dining room, each outfitted with a baronial stone fireplace. The kitchen echoes the warmth of the architecture, enjoying the same wondrous views. A handsome family room and den carry the theme to the lower level. Bedrooms were created to sequester family and guests alike in view-filled cocoons of comfort and privacy. Especially noteworthy is the master suite, a heavenly haven on the upper floor that features a vaulted beamed ceiling, cozy fireplace, sitting room, built-in closets, and a thoroughly delightful bath. An antique two-bedroom guesthouse nestles on distant lawns, lending romance along with a stone terrace, swimming pool, tennis court, and a horse barn that beckons its riders to the Shepaug riverfront. A testament to the timeless beauty of the beloved New England hamlet of Roxbury, the Connecticut country vision by Juan Montoya captures fully the inspiring splendor of historic Litchfield County. Overlooking the Shepaug River from some 66 acres bordering Land Trust, the private kingdom charmingly welcomes all who pass through its rustic stone walls and gates. The showpiece evokes a gigantic antique barn, aglow inside with a luxurious patina that belies its 2002 origins.
