10-Acre Shelterfields Estate Listed in Redding for $10.25M

Shelterfields Estate in Redding for Sale

This grand, gated estate started life in 1907 as a toll house along the misleadingly named Poverty Hollow Road in Redding (it’s something of a mansion district). The property now has the air of an elegant, rambling villa in the south of France. Its 10 acres are hidden by a high stone wall graced by espaliered trees. But once you’re allowed through the gates, there’s a wide and welcoming gravel courtyard leading to the trellised main entrance. The je-ne-sais-quoi continues inside the 8,522-square-foot home, especially in the newer wing, housing a great room with a cupola and wet bar, a game room, and a guest suite with a fireplace. In all, there are six bedrooms and six bathrooms (plus three half bathrooms). Outside find a pool with a stone terrace, a tennis court, gardened terraces, a fire pit and cutting and vegetable gardens. It’s listed with David Everson of the David Everson Group, affiliated with William Raveis in Ridgefield. 203-246-7150.
