Welcome to one of Greater Hartford's most significant homes. Situated on 9 acres, the private estate sits on the 3rd fairway of The Country Club of Farmington golf course and was designed by Peabody & Stearns, the vision behind the Breakers Mansion of Newport, RI. The 1907 Arts & Crafts Tudor entered the 21st century with a down to the studs restoration project spearheaded by locally renowned Soraghan Brothers and included all new 600 AMP electrical with 65KW stand-by generator, new plumbing, painstakingly re-plastered walls, extensive custom woodwork, and reconstructed land and hardscapes. The result is a home that welcomes you with an arts & crafts ambiance, warm butternut wood-paneled walls and large, elegant spaces such as the grand hall, living, and dining rooms that are accompanied by intimate spaces such as a sun porch with fireplace and dining porch with radiant heat stone floors. Incredible millwork is to be found all throughout the house in paneling, cove molding, window seating and cabinetry. A Beverly Ellsley kitchen with stone fireplace, separate caterer's kitchen, stunning butler's pantry, and long-run outdoor power for tented lawn events are an entertainer's delight. The master bedroom suite hosts two full bath areas, a large custom crafted changing room, sunset views, and period correct sleeping porch. The 16-room home presents endless opportunities for multiple home office spaces and is complete with au pair apartment. Just 2 hours from Boston and NYC.
