This historic English Tudor estate is located on over 5 private acres just a few blocks from the quaint village center in Norfolk, CT. Designed by famed architect Ehrick Rossiter in 1898, the estate features spacious rooms with stunning cherry woodwork, stained glass and leaded glass windows, 4 fireplaces, and balconies. The spacious first floor includes a large living room with a massive stone fireplace, a bright dining room with fireplace and stained glass windows, a baronial library, a bar, and a sunroom overlooking the rear gardens. A large commercial-style kitchen and butler’s pantry are ideal for entertaining. The estate is currently configured with 10 bedrooms and 9.5 baths on the second and third floors, including a master bedroom suite with fireplace and balcony. A large, light-filled annex is attached to the main estate, with spacious first-floor space, an additional 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a separate exterior entrance. The annex is perfect for a home office, gym, studio, and/or private guest quarters. The property includes acres of lawn, perennial gardens, and a wooded area with a brook, and is within walking distance from Norfolk’s country store deli, full-service restaurant, and miles of hiking trails. The property offers many possibilities for a grand residence with attached office/guest quarters or a weekend escape for entertaining family and friends. The property is currently used as a bed and breakfast, and the business is available to purchase for an additional price.
