Memorial Day has this editor daydreaming of owning a weekend home in the country—specifically this beauty in East Hampton, Connecticut. Known as Shepherd’s Hill, the circa-1700 colonial is located on 5.6 acres in the Middle Haddam Historic District, right by the Connecticut River.

Carefully restored, the 2,352-square-foot residence boasts a wealth of original carpentry and charming details, including five fireplaces and wide-plank flooring. In addition to the spacious living room with fireplace, built-in shelving, bow window, and a Dutch door overlooking the river, there’s a formal dining room, updated kitchen, and three lovely bedrooms, including a huge master suite. Three and a half bathrooms round it out.

The grounds are equally extraordinary. Not only do they include a stone patio and a second-floor balcony, there are rolling verdant lawns, perennial gardens, and a gunite pool as well. A couple of outbuildings round out the property, including a pool pump house, woodshed, and a three-bay garage. Located at 105 Middle Haddam Road, it’s offered at $775,000.
