11,000 Sq. Ft. Modern English Manor on Lake Waramaug by TEA2 Architects Reduced to $9.9M
Washington, Connecticut, United States
Set on some of the most desired lake property surrounding Lake Waramaug in Connecticut, this magnificent estate – masterfully designed and meticulously executed – is one of Litchfield County’s most enchanting estates. Recently reduced to $9,950,000, this lovely home was previously on the market for $10,750,000. Set on 30 acres of lightly wooded property with seasonal mountain streams and walking trails that access the Steep Rock Preserve’s favourite hiking trial, The Pinnacle, this truly one of a kind property offers absolute privacy and panoramic views of the lake and the unspoiled Litchfield Hills beyond. Completed in 2012 by TEA2 Architects, this exceptional 11,000 square foot 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom home offers three levels with walls of windows taking in grand vistas toward the lake. Some of the interior details include exquisite mahogany floors, beamed ceilings, a floating staircase and handcrafted ironwork. TEA2, an award-winning architectural firm, fully embraced the site and the owners desire to emphasize sustainability – integrating features such as strategically placing windows that take advantage of both views and summer and winter daylight. The flawless execution and eternal durability is evident in the hand-cut Canadian sandstone exterior, the 100-year roof, and the 60,000 board feet of mahogany – sourced from old growth trees, felled by hurricanes. The stone barn with 4-garage bays has an open finished upper level, ideal for an artist’s studio or gardener’s paradise. A caretaker’s house is located at the base of the driveway entrance. Summer days and evenings can be spent on 100′ of private lakeshore complete with a parking space, picnic area, pebble beachfront and boat dock. It’s been reduced to $9,950,000 with Berkshire Hathaway.
