Location: Ridgefield, Connecticut

Price: $639,000

This ‘70s cottage, sitting right on the banks of Rainbow Lake in Ridgefield, Connecticut, is the ultimate nature retreat just 65 miles north of New York City. Previously home to legendary singer Judy Collins, the roughly 2,000-square-foot house shows off a facade of California redwood and an revamped interior with a customized kitchen and dramatic great room with a wall of windows showcasing the lake.

Every room of the house seems to focus on the incredible lake views, starting from the vaulted great room with a wall of glass opening to the deck. The open kitchen, which is off this space, was renovated with new custom cabinets, Silestone quartz counters, and Bosch appliances.

There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms across the house. The upper level bathrooms come with a skylight, while the lower-level bedroom—accessed by a spiral staircase—features a dramatic wood-lined ceiling.

The half-acre property also includes an expansive deck with a scenic spa, private dock, detached studio, and extensive stonework. The house, located at 239 Mountain Road, is asking $639,000.
