A truly rare opportunity to own “Dragonfly Farm”, one of the most unique estates in New England which has been featured in House & Garden and many architectural books. The estate compound began in the 1700s with the construction of the mill and the millkeeper's house (which now serves as the guest house). The Federal style stone house was added to the property in the early 19th century. In the 20th century, this main house was expanded by owner and architect Heathcote Woolsey. It was then owned by the Hammerstein family (of Rogers & Hammerstein fame). The current compound includes the 5 bedroom residence, 2 bedroom guest house, antique barn, office/gym/game room complex above the 4+ car garage, caretaker's house and a stone cabana. Unique features of the main house include a gracious foyer w/ curving staircase, dining room w/ opposing fireplaces, vaulted kitchen w/ stone walls/opposing fireplaces/hand hewn beams & a stunning solarium/family room. Leisure time will find you enjoying tennis, soccer, basketball, golf chipping, archery & the gunite heated pool. When you are ready for a break from all that fun, the remnants of the original mill provide a welcome respite w/ a covered perch above the roaring brook (yes fishing!) Distinctive perennial & cutting gardens surround the bldgs & a sunny field across the brook hosts an extensive fenced vegtable garden. Structures are connected by stone terraces, stone walls & covered brick pathways. Macedonia St Park (2300 acres) and Pond Mountain (800 acres) are just up the road w/ miles of spectacular hiking/riding trails which also abut the Appalacian Trail. Kent is one of the most charming historic towns in CT, with chic shops & plentiful fine dining options. Train stop from Grand Central is 10 minutes from house. 1 hr 45 min drive to NYC. Addl land avail. Suitable for horses.
