This historic 115-acre estate has a private 12-acre lake entirely on the property and sits on Talcott Mountain at the highest point in Avon CT. With sweeping majestic views of the Farmington Valley and the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, Montevideo is simply magnificent! The main residence, rebuilt in 1991, is situated around mature trees and affords eastern views of the lake and western views of the valley. In addition to the 7900 square foot main residence, the property has three houses ranging in size from 1,000 - 2,000 square feet, three Victorian-era barns, a boathouse, a dock, and a floating wood raft. Originally established in the early 19th century, the property has been home to only three families since 1890. Daniel Wadsworth, a well-known arts patron, originally developed the property. Many historic figures have enjoyed Montevideo. Hudson River Valley School artist Thomas Cole created several paintings from the estate. Mark Twain enjoyed swimming in the property’s lake. Teddy Roosevelt would stop by for visits on his way to nearby Hueblein Tower. Today the same beauty that attracted some of history’s luminaries still exists. Montevideo easily could function as a personal vacation property, a corporate retreat, or a recreational compound with a private music and art studio. The utmost attention to detail was applied when building the main residence. Natural materials including brick, wood, bluestone and slate seamlessly blend with the environment and provide a nod to the past. Energy efficiency was considered when designing the home, paying special attention to the location and design of the windows. These passive solar techniques help warm the home in the winter and keep it cool during the summer. This private oasis is located only twenty minutes from the capital city of Hartford with its museums and theaters, fifteen minutes to West Hartford Center with a myriad of choices for shopping and fine dining, 25 minutes to both a private and an international airport, and just over two hours’ drive to Boston or New York City. With rolling wooded hills, stunning views, and the finest finishes, this storied property is truly unique and would be a pleasure for anyone to call home. Serious inquiries only, please. Additional photos and video are available to qualified buyers. Property is shown by appointment only.
