Madison, CT, US
353 Boston Post Road
Barberry Hill Farm- this iconic property is offered for the first time in over a century! This almost eighteen-acre gem sits on the Boston Post Road directly across from the Madison Country Club's 13th & 14th holes, the Madison Surf Club's Lowrey playing fields, the Madison Surf Club beach, and less than 1 mile from the village center with its quaint shops and more. Walk to the beach and ride your bike to the village. The elegant 2,900 square foot, five bedroom, 3 bath colonial was built in 1910 by United States District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Henry Warren Goddard, who famously presided over the Alger Hiss trial in 1949. The Goddard family has continuously inhabited the property for better than 100 years. The home sits atop one of the highest pieces of ground in southern Madison well set back from the stone wall lined roads. A two bedroom guest cottage, several barns and sheds and a pond complete the property. Currently an active working farm with seasonal farm stand and special events including weddings and Farm dinners, this idyllic setting begs for an imaginative buyer. With 517 feet of frontage on the Post Road and 1,345 feet on pastoral Stony Lane, property ideal for either residential development or as a private family compound or simply to maintain as a working farm. This amazing location can't be duplicated this close to the town & L.I. Sound. Twenty minutes to New Haven, 90 from NYC, approx 1 hr to Providence and Hartford airports.
