Follow the dragonflies down a private road and up a gracious driveway to this lovely cape located on 9 private acres, overlooking an all-natural and ecologically balanced picturesque pond.  Relax with friends on the spacious back deck while listening to the meandering stream and frogs croaking.  With gorgeous pine floors throughout, fireplaces and exquisite architectural details, this home has all the charm of an antique, but with all the updated mechanics and proportions of a newly built home.  Located in the rolling hills of Sharon Connecticut, the drive approaching this property is perfection.  A true country home that is the definition of serenity and tranquility, is only minutes from The Sharon Tri-Arts, the Appalachian Trail and the Wassaic train station.
