If that picture-perfect scene of those two bright red barns and that waterfall doesn’t immediately draw you in, then maybe these other features will.

Built in 1762, this country retreat is set on over three acres in the historic town of Merryall, in New Milford, Connecticut. It comprises a Colonial main residence with three bedrooms, three baths, and gorgeous period details like exposed beams, wide-plank floorboards, and multiple fireplaces.

A recent renovation brings the home into the contemporary age, however, and several outbuildings like a guesthouse, a two-car garage that includes an apartment, and a barn pool house make this property an ideal place for entertaining and multi-generational living.

The amenities don’t stop there. A handsome in-ground stone pool with passive solar heating, a (babbling!) brook with waterfall and a footbridge traversing it, as well as lovely landscaped grounds with original stone walls, perennial gardens, and rolling lawns provide an abundance of outdoor relaxation and entertaining opportunities.

Located at 26 Barker Road and just 80 miles from New York City, the home is offered at $1.36 million. Take a look.
