43 Prattling Pond Rd, Farmington, CT, Connecticut 06032. Sitting at the town's highest point, this gated, 23-acre estate lays claim to the most spectacular views of the valley from its 1/8th mile of frontage along the ridge line. Directly below lies the remnants of the Clatter Valley Road - the trail on which Farmington's first settlers crossed Talcott Mountain and came down into the valley. Most of the property consists of either flat or gentle rolling hills.
The modest 4064 square foot home is a diamond in the rough. Built by Ernest Walker Smith, the home was purchased in 1972 by aerospace pioneer Charlie Kamen, founder of Kaman Corporation. The four-bedroom contemporary is waiting for the right owner to restore it to the showplace it once was; or for the right developer to do something very special with this sub-dividable property. Also on this spectacular property you'll find an 800 SF steel barn where Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation got its start. . . now an internationally recognized nonprofit.
