Updated vintage colonial 9-room home, large flexible use outbuilding, and barn nestled in an enchanting 5-acre setting within the quintessentially bucolic New England community of Newtown. A magical escape from Manhattan. The main house, like the town itself, respects tradition while also embracing modernity. Two renovations, expansions and updates preserved 19th century period details, including exposed hand-hewn beams, plaster walls and two brick fireplaces, while moving the 2,850 sf, 4-bedroom, 3-bath house into the modern era. The 1,214 sf outbuilding, added in 1920, features studio space, an outdoor shower, a cabana area with a full bath, and income-producing Airbnb opportunities. The barn provides space for rustically elegant entertaining, dining, relaxation, yoga, and meditation; like living in the pages of a Ralph Lauren catalogue. Nature at its finest; the property boasts a botanical bounty of open meadows with a profusion of wildflowers. The pollinator pathway gives way to secret gardens, an abundance of edible wild berry bushes, large fenced vegetable garden and canopies of trees with restful shade. Walking paths wind passed a custom in-ground swimming pool and fire pit with log stump seats. Conveniently located minutes from shops and eateries in the center of Newtown with its iconic flagpole. Proximity to I-84, and Routes 6 and 25. Close enough for a daily commute if necessary, perfect as a year-round home or weekend retreat.
