474 Smith Hill Road, “the Cooper House” has stood in the charming village of Colebrook for 200 years. Nestled into a quiet corner of the Litchfield Hills, life here offers a tranquil retreat from the pace and stress of present-day life, with modern amenities and antique charm including high speed internet, a large kitchen with mahogany countertops, American Chestnut beams, and stainless-steel appliances. Upgrades include modern electric, plumbing, and a whole-house generator. The property sits on 5 acres in the middle of Colebrook Center, offering Norman Rockwell views of this charming historic town. The land is a gardener’s paradise featuring an organic yard (no chemicals or fertilizers in at least 15 years), specimen trees, and a small pond surrounded by an acre of perennial and self-seeding wildflowers, fireflies abound! A short walk down Cooper Lane leads to the town recreational area, including basketball courts (an ice skating rink in the winter), the little league field, and the town pond. Surrounding the town pond is a nature trail that creates a lovely one-mile loop from your back door. A short walk up the road is the 100-student elementary school, and the general store (one of the oldest in Connecticut), church, post office, historical society, and community center are across the street offering the opportunity to socialize and meet your neighbors. It’s a perfect balance of living in the countryside while being in the center of it all.
