A remarkable 1,086 +/- acre estate with outstanding views, lush meadows, mature forest, and an impressive Andrea Palladio-inspired 15-room home (5 bedrooms, 4 full & 3 half baths) of ca. 12,000 square feet. Set amid one of the largest privately owned tracts of land in Litchfield County in the towns of Cornwall & Goshen. This stunning residence offers absolute privacy. It is accessed by a gated driveway that winds its way past a gorgeous barn with horse stables and loft, a white birch grove, meadows, and a forest. Upon arrival through the magnificent copper beech-lined granite cobblestone courtyard, the first glimpse one gets of its absolutely stunning limestone and stucco façade with exquisite Palladian-inspired fenestration and architectural detailing.

Once inside the entry hall with a French marble fireplace, one is greeted by an awe-inspiring 2-story atrium with double circular floating staircases leading to a light-filled galleria with a sitting area and an arched ceiling. The main level includes an expansive chef’s country kitchen with a granite-topped center island, commercial-grade appliances, stone floors, 2 butler’s pantries, and a cathedral-wood beamed ceiling. The kitchen opens to a wonderful informal dining room with wood beamed cathedral ceiling and French doors leading to a stone terrace with a grill station, fireplace, and pergola on one side and a colorful sunken flower garden on the other. Adjacent is a den with a large stone inglenook fireplace (one of six), a stone floor and wood-beamed cathedral ceiling, and a T.V. room. This wing is ideal for putting one’s chef’s hat on, relaxed entertaining & dining, and unwinding by the indoor and outdoor fireplace.

For more formal occasions, there is a dining room, a living room with 2 fireplaces, a warm wood-paneled library/office, and a study. A double-height solarium has French doors to yet another stone patio. In addition to the colorful gardens, a covered terrace, shrubbery, stone walls, fruit trees, and a tennis court all highlight the exterior amenities.

Also included is a large temperature-controlled wine cellar, a game room, and a gym. Attached is a 6-car garage which supplements a separate 6,000 sq. ft. heated barn (perfect for housing a car collection) and a squash court. This compound also includes a farmhouse with a separate apartment, a caretaker’s converted barn home, and an antique farmhouse in need of restoration.

The property is also being offered on ca. 550 acres at 9.5 million. Please call for additional details.
