Property that only comes along once in a Blue Moon! This stunning find consists of 128 totally private acres and is a lovely blend of mature forest, rolling open meadow, a pond and direct frontage on Lake Lillinonah. Big views are found from many spots on the property where the only sounds are of nature.

Enjoy the Shaker styled home with views from the many windows of the light-filled 3-Bedroom home as well as sunsets from the front porch. In addition, there is a charming 4-Bedroom Guest House, once an old tobacco barn at the entrance to the property. For collectors, there is a large barn currently used as a workshop. Less than 2 hours from Manhattan, this special offering is truly a world apart.
