A Storybook Redding, CT Manor on 19 Acres Seeks $4.5M

In Redding, a unique estate resembling a castle in a storybook offers a traditional take on luxury living. Sprawling grounds, gracious rooms, grand architecture, it has it all. While it may seem like the perfect backdrop for a whimsical story, there is one aspect that is normally not on the pages of a fairytale: Working from home. Luckily, this home even makes that sometimes daunting task seem enchanting.

In the home office, you can be your own boss in a space that features ornate cabinetry, a fireplace and parquet floors. Then, the home’s nearly 15,000-square-foot interiors offer plenty of distractions, including a great room with a stone fireplace, a media room with an oversized screen, a full mahogany bar and two recreation rooms. And on the 19.38-acre grounds, there’s a pool with a waterfall, a pond and multiple terraces.

Close to 1,000 acres of horse trails nearby seal the deal that this residence could have been plucked out of a fictional tale of knights and gnomes. Perhaps it’s time to create your 21st-century fairytale life at this palatial Connecticut home listed for $4.5 million with Karen Scott of Compass.
