Perfect 6BR 3.5 Bath 4 Fire-Place home with heated pool and child's play gym on a scenic country dirt road that leads into a land preserve along the Shepaug River - perfect for walking, jogging, biking. The most desirable rural historic location within 2 hours of NYC - Roxbury and Washington CT. Home to actors, writers, artists and the owners of luxury estate vacation homes. Many world class restaurants, inns and spas. Skiing, Lake Waramaug Beaches, BBQ, farm stands and fairs, antiquing, and numerous recreational activities.
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.)
