This home is a rare find, an unspoiled vintage home nestled on 10 acres of private forest, less than 1 ½ hours from midtown Manhattan!
This is a 1932 Sears Roebuck kit house, virtually unchanged since it was built as a camp for summering New Yorkers almost 90 years ago. Apart from recent updates to the mechanical systems and the bathroom, the structure retains the look and feel of a time gone by – quirky rooms, hardwood floors, a wood stove, a broad front porch, and furnishings that mirror it all. Included in this sale is a detached 2 car garage with a full loft that is the perfect space for a home office or rental income.
The opportunities for quiet, outdoor activities, exploring abound. If you are a hiker, fisherman or hunter you will have 10 acres to call your own, with an additional 700 acres bordering Paugusset State Park. You are also 2 minutes from Lake Lillanoah’s Newtown boat ramp. If you are traveling for work, you are only minutes from business centers in Newtown, Brookfield, Danbury and Southbury.
The property has a wonderful rolling yard surrounded by forest.
