Location: Warren, Connecticut
Try and tell me you haven’t fantasized about living next to a babbling brook. You can’t! Take a whirl back in time with this charming antique mill house built in 1745 that occupies three acres of the rolling Connecticut backwoods, a serene landscape that looks like it’s pulled straight from a fairytale.
Sitting at 3,300 square feet, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom home is surrounded by a spring-fed pond and gardens, and is approached by a covered bridge which serves as an entrance to the property.
The inside of the home maintains its rustic feel, with exposed wooden beams complementing the chestnut floors and stone fireplace. Apart from the idyllic surroundings, the centerpiece of the home is the cathedral ceiling living room, which boasts a wall of windows that opens up to a deck overlooking the deep green landscape.
No two rooms look the same, as each features a colorful paint job or unique remnant alluding to the house’s colonial past. Overwhelmed by the scope of the property? Not to worry—the grounds also host a small shed by the creek which acts as an artist’s studio complete with its own bathroom, if you still feel an urge to get away from it all.
