This Circa-1927 French Normandy Castle Can be Yours for $6.1M
The nutmeg state doesn’t really have royalty, but a visitor would be forgiven for thinking we do, given the palaces, castles and other baronial manses dotting the Connecticut countryside. That misperception is especially forgivable in Lakeville, on the 100-acre property that’s been in the Scoville family for four generations, including Herbert Scoville, Jr., a CIA director, and his sculptor wife Ann. The circa-1927 French Normandy castle has artistic touches throughout, from the handmade tiles and artist-designed beams to Ann Scoville’s life-sized sculpted dancers (not included in purchase price) sited around a reflecting pool. Some of the listing’s knockout features: 12 bedrooms, including two master suites; an updated kitchen with the original pastry slab and icebox, now a liquor cabinet; a game room with a puppet theater; and, on the grounds, a grand allée of Russian maples, a sunken garden and a gorgeous new pool. And here’s an amenity we’ve never seen before: a beautiful, circa-1890 water tower that now boasts a top-level circular room with a fireplace. Ira Goldspiel of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty has the $6.1 million listing.
