Art Collector’s Kingdom, Sharon, Connecticut


Offered at $15,500,000

A traditional yet eclectic compound of seven buildings bejeweling 51-plus bucolic gated acres comprises an art collector’s private Shangri-la. The Granary–a personal 14,000-square-foot versatile gallery and storage building capable of housing collections of art, books, coins, antiques, and more—embodies the soul of the estate. Temperature controlled geothermally, it features four distinct, commodious skylit gallery spaces, and two art storage vaults and archives, all served by a glass freight elevator. If The Granary is the estate’s soul, the five-bedroom, six-bath circa 1840 main house serves as its heart. Highlighted by gracious rooms and modern conveniences such as a professional kitchen and a formal firelit dining room that seats 16, it has been lovingly restored and modernized to include Lutron lighting and Crestron audio throughout. Additional amenities include four fireplaces, a solarium, and large covered porch. A pool house beside the sparkling pool offers a large library, kitchen, full bath, and storage. Completing the ensemble of buildings are two wonderfully equipped two-bedroom, two-bath guest cottages, a separate caretaker cottage, and a large versatile storage barn. The verdant grounds are adorned with extensive gardens, mature trees, and stone and slate hardscaping.
