River Road, Barkhamsted, CT
Spectacular Direct Waterfront Home on The Farmington River
5BR/3+1BA Single Family House
offered at $989,000
3 full, 1 partial
4+ Car garage
$0 per month
**3 acre Riverfront Lot Available**Spectacular custom built home sits ~80 feet from the water on one of the most desirable stretches of The Farmington River! Location is designated by the National Park Service as "Wild & Scenic" and this home has a commanding presence from the tree-lined street, a meandering driveway lined with plum trees, organic gardens, and a field of alfalfa. Truly a nature-lover's paradise or a fisherman's dream!
The open floor plan maximizes views of The River from every room. Upon entry into the home, you are immediately drawn past the foyer to the "wall of windows" overlooking The River in the Family Room. The custom Kitchen with cherry cabinets and granite counters includes a Butler's Pantry that leads you into an elegant formal Dining Room. Also off of the Kitchen is a fabulous Sunroom with breathtaking views & is a perfect spot for morning coffee.
The other wing of the home includes the Master Bedroom, an additional Bedroom with a walk-in cedar closet, and a Home Office with built-in book shelves. The Master has one of the best views of both The River and also the grounds. There are two walk-in closets and an oversized Master Bathroom with marble counters, marble tile floors, a Jacuzzi tub, and a steam shower.
The second floor has three additional Bedrooms, one of them a perfect au pair suite or optional Master Bedroom. Above the three-car attached garage is an additional 800sqft Family Room with built in bookshelves and a beautiful view of the in-ground pool, organic gardens, and Farmington River. Open the windows and you can hear the soothing sounds of Morgan Brook just off the organic gardens.
There is also an additional 1560sqft detached structure currently a commercial kitchen where there would be two garage bays. Above is the perfect In-Law set-up or perhaps a Guest Room about 780sqft and includes a full bathroom.
The location alone couldn't be recreated, and is admired by the locals, the fishermen, and those driving by. The Fishermen especially know this location because of its significance on the TMA (Trout Management Area). The area just off the rear right of the house is known as Greenwood's Pool, about 300 yards long, and is the second most popular pool on the TMA. Also to the right of the house is what is called The Bone Yard where you will find one of the most prevalent areas to catch large and wild fish. You might also see otters raising families, and if you are lucky, bald eagles soaring above the water.
This home is truly one of a kind. Custom built on 9.4 acres on one of the most desired stretches of the Farmington River, this property is more than a home; it’s a destination. Call Michele Pellegatto at 860-416-0388 for a private appointment.
