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.
