Residence Description

Land

A very rare family compound on 5.06 acres of gently sloping manicured lawns with 332 ft of direct lake frontage on Lake Wononscopomuc, Connecticut’s deepest natural lake. The Main Residence, a Guest House, Studio and a Caretaker’s Cottage are reached by a graceful driveway. The property enjoys mature landscaping, original perennial gardens set against stonewall backgrounds, spectacular northern views of Mt. Riga, the Taconic range and unusual privacy. Less than 7/10 mile from The Hotchkiss School.

Main Residence

Custom designed by noted architect Ralph Twitchell in the early 1930’s, this breathtakingly beautiful shingle-style home, reminiscent of the Arts & Crafts Movement, is the essence of baronial country elegance and enjoys large rooms featuring accents of stone, artistic wrought iron decor, aged wood and plaster. Commissioned as a weekend and summer home by one of Salisbury’s oldest and most prominent families, this special place is well suited to both entertaining and family living. Heavily accented by evidence of the extensive travel and international residencies of its owners, it continues to be occupied by the descendants of same. First time on the market.
