It’s ‘Gilmore Girls’ Rewatch Season and Dragonfly Farm in Connecticut Is Up for Sale
Washington, Connecticut is said to be the inspiration for the fictional town of Star’s Hollow, the center of the Gilmore Girls universe. And just north of that sits the quaint town of Kent, holding an estate interestingly dubbed Dragonfly Farm.
For all those rewatching Gilmore Girls now as the leaves change, a journey many avid fans take at this time of year, this listing may make your imagination swirl. Though it is not known to be connected to the show, its name and location certainly create a feeling of enchantment.
The circa-1820s compound sits on 42 acres, creating a world of its own. At Dragonfly Farm’s center is a handsome stone manor with all the hallmarks of its era’s estates. The façade has nine 12-over-12 windows, the front door opens onto a two-story entry hall, and there are rustic stone walls and dramatic woodwork throughout. But thanks to an inspired renovation by Jeffrey Bilhuber, the interiors are also modern, comfortable and colorful—all trademarks of the designer’s work.
The double-height kitchen, for instance, features exposed beams, a fireplace and access to the formal dining room and an outdoor dining terrace. Surrounding, and predating, the main house is a two-bedroom home, while the former stable is now a garage, and an old mill is now a party space. Also on the grounds: a pool and stone pool house, a Har-Tru tennis court and formal gardens.
Peter Klemm of Klemm Real Estate has the listing, priced at $9.95 million.
