A Stately & Serene Home Lists on Connecticut’s Twin Lakes

Palatial Craftsman Style Home On The Twin Lakes Of Connecticut Asks 8 5m Exterior

On the shores of Washining, one of the Twin Lakes in Litchfield County, a palatial stone-and-shingle home has hit the market for $8.5 million. Although the Salisbury, Connecticut house is impressive, the 220 feet of private sandy beach is what makes this property a rarity.

On 2.68 acres, its back lawns roll down to the sand. The lake side of the house also embeds sheltered parking for boats, a terrace with an infinity-edge spa and an outdoor fireplace. Step inside from the terrace and you’re in a 50-foot-long great room with 12-foot coffered ceilings, a fireplace and a dining area. In all, the 5,124-square-foot home offers four bedrooms, an office and a third-floor space with a kitchen and playroom. It is listed for $8.5 million with Patricia Best and Kristine Jennings, both of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
