Tour a $5.7M Rural Roxbury Beauty Designed and Built by Ed Cady

A quintessential country home designed and built by Ed Cady—famous for his restorations and reconstructions of historic barns—has hit the market in Connecticut with a price tag of $5.7 million. The site, comprised of 26 acres atop a high elevation in the town of Roxbury, was selected for a laundry list of reasons, namely: Privacy and direct adjacency to a 450-acre land trust. With all the marks of Cady’s famous vision and craftsmanship, the home stuns in the truest sense.

Several buildings stand on the property, all made with antique timber barn frames sourced from upstate New York. There’s the main house, its hand-hewn beams, wide-board floors, and five fireplaces imbue warm texture and a sense of historical awareness. Granite sourced from Roxbury outfits the kitchen, off of which stands a delightful greenhouse. A guest house looks over the Shepaug River Valley, while a nearby barn doubles as a three-car garage and in-law apartment.

All told, the property counts 4 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms within 5,808 square feet of interior space. Ed Cady, who founded East Coast Barn Builders in 1960 and whose work is widely praised, has graced Roxbury with some beautiful, unique homes and this masterpiece is not to be missed. Rick Distel of Compass holds the listing.
