Charming 250 year-old colonial located on a quiet county road in Litchfield County, Connecticut. Perfect for hiking, skiing and swimming. Wonderful spot for weekends away from the city. Close to Hotchkiss, Lime Rock and the Berkshires.
This is the perfect spot for one or two families to enjoy country weekends full of outdoor activities, or just sitting around the fire. The road is super-quiet, the gardens are lovely, the fireplaces huge. The kitchen is equipped with all you need to create big meals. It's minutes from Mohawk Mountain skiing, the Appalachian and Mohawk Trails hiking routes, and the Housatonic River. It's also great for families wanting to visit their kids at nearby Hotchkiss or watch the races at Lime Rock.

There is a convenience store 5 minutes away, but the nearest supermarket is a 25 minute drive. The nearest movie theater is a 20 minute drive. The tiny village of West Cornwall has a restaurant and Cornwall village has a library and public tennis courts, but not much else. All to say--this is quiet country life!

I live and work in New York, but spend as much time as possible at my wonderful old house in Connecticut. My kids are in college so I now have lots of time to work in the garden, swim in the lake and walk in the woods.
I am looking to rent out my house, since I won't be needing such a big place during my busy academic year. It's a house that needs a family in it!
