A Charming Antique Home on 8 Acres of Connecticut’s Countryside Seeks $2.2M

A home for all the seasons and all the senses is up for sale in the Connecticut countryside. Set on eight acres in Roxbury, the historic main house, a quaint 19th-century home, includes wooden beams and multiple fireplaces, creating a cozy atmosphere for winter. Listed for $2.2 million, the expansive property is a lovely place to live rain or shine, snow or heat.

During the summer months, imagine frolicking in the meadows and gardens, splashing around in the pool, practicing your serves on the tennis court, or relaxing by the pond. Indoor-outdoor living is oh-so-easy at this property. There is a patio off of the chef’s kitchen, which leads to the outdoor amenities. For longer walks, the property is also adjacent to the Roxbury Land Trust, which includes 3,800 acres of woodlands and 30 miles of hiking trails.

While there are modern updates for today’s living, the estate dates back two centuries and looks like it. Each space—the formal dining room, the library—has an antique feel that makes the home a perfect countryside escape.

Across the 2,640-square-foot residence, there are five bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half bath. The property even includes an English Bank barn, adding to the home’s charm and opening the door for many possibilities. Entertaining barn or work from home getaway? Go for it.
