Take a Peek at Two Fairytale Cottages For Sale in Litchfield County
For the first of our cottage listings, we descend down Bell Hill and into the town of Washington, where a circa-1881 stone cottage sits on two private acres. With its vine-covered façade, arched front door and gabled, cedar-shingled roof, it looks like the kind of enchanted dwelling found in a fairy tale. There’s more magic throughout the 1,692-square-foot interiors, including handsome wood floors, exposed stone walls and antique fixtures. It also offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms (as well as a powder room) and is on the market for $1,250,000 with Tim Tierney of Klemm Realty.
Our cottage tour takes us next to Roxbury, also in Litchfield County. There’s a fairy-tale aspect to this home as well, with its ridge-top setting, pretty gardens, peaked roofs and white-timber façade. The 2,727-square-foot dwelling was actually built in 1980 to resemble a traditional cottage, with exposed beams, shiplap ceilings and an antique-look brick fireplace. Modern luxuries start in the newly renovated kitchen, now furnished with a Wolf gas range and Sub-Zero fridge, adjoined by a breakfast area and access to an exterior porch. There’s also a first-floor master suite, with its own walled outdoor terrace, as well as two upstairs bedrooms. Maureen Burmann of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty offers the seven-acre property for $1,295,000.
