Lakefront Compound on Litchfield County’s Coveted Twin Lakes
Beautifully sited on Litchfield County’s coveted Twin Lakes, this 10+ acre lakefront compound rests on a peninsula with 1200’ of shoreline evoking the feel of living on your own private island. Accessed via a tree lined drive, the property is anchored by a perfectly proportioned main house that leverages wood, glass, and stone to blend into the land. Sited on a high point on the property with an open floor plan, rooms are flooded with natural light and tranquil views of the lake, woodlands, and sky. A covered wraparound porch is ideal for relaxing outdoors and provides access to the naturalized landscape sculpted with rustic stones that leads to the lake or follow the path towards the in- ground pool or to the log home that serves as the guest house. The crown jewel of the property is the bluestone grotto overlooking a private dock where a boat can be moored, fishing lines can be cast, kayaks can be launched, and stories are often shared in front of the fire at night. With two en-suite bedrooms on the main level of the house, two bunk rooms in the lower level, two bedrooms in the guest house, and woodburning fireplaces in each - there is plenty of space to welcome guests year round. While the property feels private - it is not far away from local amenities including the shops and restaurants of downtown Salisbury, Lakeville, Millerton, and Great Barrington; trail markers in Cornwall and Sharon that lead to hikes with stunning views along the Appalachian Trail; the slopes of Mohawk and Butternut winter resorts; live performances at Music Mountain, Sharon Playhouse, and Tanglewood; and the campuses of the Hotchkiss, Indian Mountain, and Salisbury private schools. Now is a wonderful time to escape to the hills and enjoy life well lived here.
