Presenting a rare and unique opportunity, this sophisticated 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath Bensonwood-designed home, built by Hudson Valley Preservation, located in Sharon, CT, is beautifully situated on the banks of the Housatonic River and features a heated gunite saline pool. Bensonwood uses Net Zero design principles and no fossil fuels, with the intent of living lightly off the land. Triple-glazed windows and thick, super-insulated walls provide consistent indoor temperatures all year long. Energy/heat recovery air ventilation provides a constant flow of fresh, filtered air, especially important when outdoor air quality is poor. A bank of solar panels ensures reduced operational costs.

Post and beam construction offers an open floor plan. The light-filled main level features clean lines,  timbers, and white oak flooring. A vaulted ceiling and custom shelving in the living room generously open out to a screen porch complete with a wood-burning fireplace. A chef’s dream kitchen is open to the dining area and living room. An expansive white oak island with seating for four, pendant lights, and open shelving anchors the kitchen. Silestone surfaces, white oak cabinetry, and floating shelves surround stainless Bluestar appliances and a powerful induction range top. A fully equipped galley-style butler’s pantry is opposite the kitchen. The spacious primary ensuite bedroom is located on the main floor with glass doors opening out to a private patio with eastern views of the river.

A wide oak staircase leads to the second floor, offering an open landing with office space, three bedrooms, a media/recreational room, 2 full baths, and a laundry room. There is an attached extra-deep two-car garage with an EV charging station. Enjoy the serene sounds and all seasons overlooking the Housatonic River, labeled “one of the crown jewels” for fly fishing, or simply relax on the deck by the river and enjoy the birds as the Housatonic whispers by. Ideally situated near the many private and public schools, Catamount Ski Area and Aerial Park, and the villages of Salisbury, CT, Millerton, NY, Great Barrington, MA, and Wassaic Train Station.
