Roxbury, CT, US
The "Four Stone Chimneys" of Edgehill Farm, is located in the historic town of Roxbury, Ct., less then 2 hours from NYC, where Arthur Miller, Marilyn Monroe, Walter Matthau, Dustin Hoffman, Alexander Calder, and many other famous personalities lived and worked.
This multi-generational compound is situated on over 21 beautiful landscaped and wooded acres. The stone-walled driveways lead to the main residence, a colonial revival, a 2 br guest house, and a 3 br carriage house which are all equidistant from the natural pond shaped in-ground pool. The barns, silos, and sheds are noted on the Ct. State Registry of Historic Farm Buildings. Dating from 1860, the main house has 6 br., 4.5 baths, 4 fireplaces and has been maintained and updated with the finest materials for the last 50 years by the late Burt Wayne, a noted NY designer. The rooms are all very generous sizes and well proportioned with high ceilings and detailed moldings throughout. A dramatic columned porch runs the entire width of the main house.
Both the one level cottage, and the two story carriage house, with approx. 1455 sq. ft each, have lovely 3 season screened/windowed porches with views of the property. The additional landscaping, orchard, terraces, decks and porches, including a speaker system throughout, lends itself to al fresco entertaining.
This stunning country estate or 'Gentleman's Farm' is the perfect residence that could comprise a farm, an equestrian property, artists/writers studio, or many other options. Let your imagination run wild and experience this beautiful and tranquil property.
