The lofty elevation of this Loire Valley-inspired Litchfield County estate provides for breathtaking views of the Housatonic River valley and the surrounding countryside. Just up from a majestic waterfall and at the end of a country lane, the Farm’s half mile driveway meanders past open fields, stone walls, a two-acre crystal clear swimming pond and organic orchard as it approaches the courtyard of the French country estate sited on a hundred and eleven acres set in total privacy amidst extensive conservation land.

A stunning array of both formal and casual spaces make this substantial home ideal both for family living and entertaining. Dramatic ceiling heights, 5 antique wood burning fireplaces and 14 sets of French doors blends the charm of the Litchfield Hills with the majesty of Sugar Hill Farm. Seventeenth century reclaimed chestnut beams define the 32’ x 32′ Great Room, vaulted-ceiling Library with master crafted detailed moldings, spacious Dining Room opening to the light-filled breakfast room & wonderful Chef’s Kitchen, all overlooking the views of the Berkshire foothills and the Hudson Valley. This 6 Bedroom and 4 full and 3 Half Bath home are situated in the West & East wings of the home giving peace & solace to all.

Only minutes from the villages of Salisbury, Sharon, Falls Village, Millerton, Wassaic & Great Barrington, MA, yet one has a true sense of oneness with nature high atop Sugar Hill. A Caretaker’s House is a full half mile from the main residence while a large barn, workshop, and pond boathouse with dock punctuates this pristine, very special property.  This property 2 hours from Manhattan and 2.5 hours from Boston.
