4BR/3.5BA waterfront home custom built in 2004 and fully modernized in 2022 to include professionally designed furniture, décor, and amenities. The property boasts 270 feet of water frontage with its own private beach on one of the cleanest bodies of water in the area - great for electric boats, water activities, and year-round fishing. The home faces west for ideal sunsets over the water, a perfect getaway for any nature lover.
The property is located in Litchfield County, where the towns of Washington, Morris, Bantam, and Litchfield intersect - allowing for a short 5-10 minute drive to each picturesque town. The property is walking distance to a state park with an active beach, hiking trails, and farm stands, all within a 10 mile radius of 14 private schools and 8 camps - making it the perfect home base to get family and friends together. The property is also located in between Lake Waramaug and Bantam Lake, making it a summer haven with tons of activities nearby. In the winter, head to Mohawk Mountain 20 minutes north and Ski Sundown 40 minutes North East for some family friendly skiing/snowboarding. The home recently underwent a full cosmetic renovation including new kitchen and appliances, new bathrooms and fixtures, floors, paint, furniture, patio, hot tub, outdoor shower, steam shower, landscaping upgrades, and revitalization of the boat house.
The perfect summer weekend includes waking up and enjoying a coffee overlooking the morning fog on the lake as local kayakers float in the distance. Go for a swim or paddle board to get your morning workout, rinse off in the outdoor shower, and prepare yourself a delicious breakfast with fresh produce and eggs from the Ox Hollow Farm stand you can walk to. Enjoy some yoga on the boat house porch as you watch the young ones play in your own small beach. Entertain friends and family with a quintessential summer BBQ on the large stone patio outfitted with a table, sectional, umbrellas, string lights and tiki torches for great vibes. Listen to your favorite soundtrack through the Sonos speakers throughout the house. Then take your group for a hike up The Pinnacle or Mount Tom to the stone watch tower to see the rolling Litchfield Hills. Come back for a quick dip in the hot tub before getting ready for a dinner out at one of the local farm-to-table restaurants followed by a movie at Bantam Cinema or stroll through downtown Litchfield. Stop for ice cream at Arethusa or Popey's on your way home and end the night around the fire pit making s'mores and enjoying a night cap. Recharge for the next day in the recently updated bedrooms, 2 of which have ensuite bathrooms and king beds on the 1st floor, and 2 other rooms upstairs that share a bathroom with a double sink vanity. There are bunk beds and a sleeper couch upstairs perfect for kids to enjoy, in addition to the queen and king beds. The next morning, go kayaking before picking up lunch at the classic Gooseboro Drive-In, Arethusa, or the Smithy. Get reenergized in the steam shower in the primary suite before relaxing with a nice book in the hammock by the water. Head to Kent Falls Brewery for beer flights or to Hopkins Vineyard or Spring Hill Vineyard for wine tasting. Catch a local concert in town and be home in time to watch a dreamy sunset while relaxing in the cozy sunroom. Then whip up a feast in the brand new fully stocked kitchen using produce from the local farmers market. End with a movie night on either of the 65" smart TVs in the living room or upstairs common area. Whether you are seeking a fun, active getaway or a quiet place to work and recharge, this home is the perfect destination for a memorable stay with friends or family to enjoy the best of what Litchfield County has to offer.

This house was magical!! The furniture and decor was done so tastefully with modern finishes but also classic features like the fireplace, kitchen sink, and vintage door knobs. Impeccable style and attention to detail. This should be featured in Architectural Digest! My family and I spent Thanksgiving here and we had everything we needed. The house was fully stocked with all essentials, cookware, and comfy linens and towels. The patio table was even brought into the sunroom to sit all 12 of our guests under the beautiful string lights. The sunroom is heated and has plenty of seating options, making it the perfect place to watch the sunset from. The lake views were so calming. I can’t wait to visit again during the summer and enjoy the water activities and boat house. The owners clearly poured their hearts into making this property a one of a kind experience. The bedrooms are cozy and each bathroom was clearly renovated to have top of the line fixtures. The kitchen was spacious and had an open layout to the dining room, sunroom, and massive living room so our whole group could be together at all times. The sonos throughout the house was a lovely touch and we loved making a fire in the living room while we watched a movie. We even got to enjoy the large hot tub and beautiful patio. I can’t recommend this property enough and I can’t wait to come back!
