The house is laid out in an asymmetrical U-shape, with a great room at the center of a series of connected ”sheds”, with slanted roofs, and ”barns” with peaked roofs. Spare and elegant, a minimalist Japanese-influenced courtyard, with stone walls, a stone path, a linear planting of crabapple trees.

The lofty elevation of this Loire Valley-inspired Litchfield County estate provides for breathtaking views of the Housatonic River valley and the surrounding countryside. Just up from a majestic waterfall and at the end of a country lane, the Farm’s half-mile driveway meanders past open fields, stone walls, a two-acre crystal clear swimming pond and organic orchard as it approaches the courtyard of the French country estate sited on a hundred and eleven acres set in total privacy amidst extensive conservation land.
A stunning array of both formal and casual spaces make this substantial home ideal both for family living and entertaining. Dramatic ceiling heights, five antique wood-burning fireplaces and 14 sets of French doors blend the charm of the Litchfield Hills with the majesty of Sugar Hill Farm. Seventeenth-century reclaimed chestnut beams define the 32’ x 32′ Great Room, vaulted-ceiling Library with master-crafted detailed moldings, spacious Dining Room opening to the light-filled breakfast room and wonderful Chef’s Kitchen, all overlooking the views of the Berkshire foothills and the Hudson Valley. This six bedroom and four full and three half bath home are situated in the West and East wings of the home giving peace and solace to all.
Only minutes from the villages of Salisbury, Sharon, Falls Village, Millerton, Wassaic and Great Barrington, MA, yet one has a true sense of oneness with nature high atop Sugar Hill. A Caretaker’s House is a full half mile from the main residence while a large barn, workshop, and pond boathouse with dock punctuate this pristine, very special property.
