A one of a kind home nestled high in the Litchfield hills, designed by the acknowledged master of Timberframe construction, Tedd Benson. This 4 bedroom, 4 full bath home is privately sited on 43 private acres. Classic western views, a setting where the Hawks are your closest neighbors, a lower pasture with a 4 stall Barn, and access to miles of trails on State Forest and watershed land.

Bensonwood homes are built to a standard all their own, and the evidence is there throughout. Massive posts, curved beams, soaring ceilings, walls of windows, stonework from genuine craftsmen, and the highest end finishes – the quality is exceptional and tremendously energy efficient.

There is versatility in the floor plan, with the finished lower level and the separate apartment offering any number of uses. The texture of the natural materials along with the private setting evokes a sense of peace and solitude to enjoy in all seasons.
