This stunning Contemporary home is situated on 40.9 acres, perched atop one of the highest elevation points in Northwest Connecticut. A quarter mile long driveway runs alongside a beautiful tract of exposed granite ledge en route to the secluded house site, offering seasonal views of Highland Lake and the surrounding mountains. Exceptional craftsmanship and industrial quality infrastructure are exhibited throughout the home. The main level is highlighted by a bright sunken great room featuring a cathedral ceiling and a massive double-sided wood burning fireplace. Glass sliding doors lead to a large stone patio, covered deck, and zen stone garden. A well equipped kitchen includes granite countertops, a breakfast bar, gas stovetop, and a wood fired pizza oven built into the fireplace. There is an eat-in kitchen area as well as an adjoining dining room. The spacious primary bedroom suite features a walk-in closet with built-ins and bathroom with granite counters, a stone shower, and whirlpool tub. The main level is rounded out by a second sunlit bedroom with views of the natural rock garden. Two additional bedrooms, a full bath, and an office space are located on the upper level. One of the more unique features of the home is the garage door access to the heated shop/studio area in the basement, equipped with high efficiency systems and plentiful storage. Conveniently located just 2 hours from both New York and Boston, perfect for use as a country escape or full time residency!
