Robert Couturier-Designed Lakefront Home in Kent, CT Wants $5.9M

Kent has never been a primary-home option for people who are expected to show up for work in Manhattan. But now that remote working is the norm, New Yorkers are snapping up estates in Litchfield County, where six million dollars buys a 13-acre, lakefront compound—as opposed to a three-bedroom place on the Upper East Side. New to the Kent market is Dover House, a home built by the architect and interior designer Robert Couturier in 2001. Its working spaces are many and marvelous.

Enchanting from the gardens to the traditionally decorated rooms to the water views, this home is a prime place to work, play, and enjoy all of life’s moments. There’s a library with steps that lead to the water’s edge. And there’s a formal dining room that was featured in The Finest Rooms in America by Thomas Jayne (Monacelli Press, 2010). The estate also offers a swimming pool, gardens designed by Miranda Brooks and a circa-1710 guesthouse.

Sitting on 13.25 acres, the elegant home is listed for $5.9 million with Ira Goldspiel of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
