Inspired by the architecture of Andrea Palladio, this sprawling 14,873 square foot villa sits on over 1,000 acres in a pastoral setting of flourishing fields and lush forest in Cornwall, Connecticut. The rare offering was built in 1995 and first hit the market in 2017 for $16.95 million before dropping to $13.5 million last year. The home’s distinctive limestone and stucco facade highlighted by traditional and more modern Palladian details welcomes guests into a two-storey grand foyer with a duel floating circular staircase, formal living and dining rooms, chef’s kitchen and beautiful fixtures and details such as built-ins, hardwood floors and numerous fireplaces. The lavish master bedroom has a Palladian window, vaulted ceilings, walk-in closet and hardwood flooring. The additional four bedrooms are all ensuite with over 9′ ceilings. Surrounding the villa are private terraces set among European gardens, a clay tennis court, a stately horse barn, a barn complex housing a car collector’s showroom and squash court, a number of potential helicopter landing sites, plus an 18th century 5-bedroom farmhouse surrounded by expansive open pasture. The property is on the market for $13.5 million with Sotheby’s International Realty.
