About Stephen Brighenti
I am an owner/operator of luxury boutique hotels in NYC and CT. I live in Washington with my wife and 3 college age children. I enjoy restoring and renting luxury vacation rentals in Washington and Roxbury.
Stephen Brighenti purchased this House in 2016
Why Stephen Brighenti chose Roxbury
This home is spectacular in location, quality, yard and design! Located on a scenic dirt road but only a few minutes from Washington's activities and restaurants. Wonderful yard, play outdoor set and heated pool. It is a pristine 6-bedroom private antique reproduction home on a scenic dirt road ideal for walking, jogging and biking along the Shepaug River. Magnificent design with antiques, art and 4 fireplaces, over-sized living room, dining room for 12, and chef's kitchen. Heated pool surrounded by endless summer hydrangea and 3 acres of lawns with a stream. The perfect location minutes from the centers of Roxbury and Washington.
What makes this House unique
This is the home I would choose if looking for the perfect country home for your family in a quiet country neighborhood on a scenic dirt road. Close to wonderful restaurants, Lake Waramaug, The Mayflower Inn and Spa, Land Preserves with trails and rivers and marshes and views. 4 Fireplaces. Free Wood. Heated Seasonal In-Ground Pool. Roxbury & Washington are located in historic, rural Litchfield County, within a scenic 2-hour drive from NYC and is exceptional for its excellent restaurants, spas, antique shops, art galleries, boutiques, farms, historic homes, gardens, vineyards, distilleries, and orchards. The Gilmore Girls creator modeled Stars Hollow, the perfect Connecticut town, after Washington and the Independence Inn after the Mayflower Inn. It is the current or former home to many artists, writers, actors and Wall Street executives – referred to as "more Vermont, than Vermont" and "the un-Hamptons". Nature preserves, Lake Waramaug, and the Shepaug River offer extensive hiking, biking, and water activities. Mohawk and Sundown Ski Areas , Lime Rock Raceway, and Quassy Amusement Park are all a short drive. ExploreWashingtonCT and PoshPadsCT have the best listings of area amenities and event calendars. (Note that VRBO-HomeAway's map needs to be zoomed to really show Washington and Roxbury listings only and not homes 30 minutes away in less desirable locations.) All of my homes in Washington and Roxbury (PoshPadsCT) are beautifully landscaped with flowering shrubs, flagstone terraces with gas bbq. And heated pools. They are furnisged with Frette pressed cotton sheets, plush towels and bathrobes, down featherbeds, comforters and pillows. Optional maid and catering and massage services are available. All homes have Central heat and AC, WiFi, flat screen televisions with dvds, cable and movie channels, and central alarms.

Perfect house for a large group. Beautiful property!
What an awesome & warm-feeling home! The decor was gorgeous and every detail was well thought out, right down to the individual robes on each bed. Great place! We’re already thinking about coming back in the summer just to see how pretty it is then.
Thank you for staying and being wonderful guests. Roxbury and Washington are wonderful year round - the summer is high season with many visitors enjoying Lake Waramaug, the great restaurants, and farm fresh produce. The fall is foliage and apple picking. Winter offers cozy fires and several local ski options. All within 2 hours of NYC. Looking forward to your return hopefully to any of my local vacation rental homes. Best, Steve
Wonderful country retreat!
Wonderful house and location. Stayed here recently for a family fall get-away in the country. Fully equipped for entertaining and relaxing. Steve was most helpful and a pleasure to work with in planning stay. Look forward to another visit in the future!
