Fall is coming: fire in the fireplace and cozy up. Spacious, tranquil, a Mid-Century Ranch with a great view. Situated on 1000 acres of Connecticut farmland, access to gentle hiking trails, a backyard pool, and pond. 20 minutes to UCONN. A simple space with light and privacy, a view of fields and sky.
Northeastern Connecticut has a quiet heritage known as "The Last Green Valley", there are things to do, and history embedded in unlikely places. Getting here is by car, bus and train service sparse.
It is three hours to NYC, 2 to Boston, a half hour or one hour to ocean beaches, a quick hour to the Connecticut River Valley. This part of Connecticut is not overtly touristic. There are many things to do, but you need to drive a bit to get to them.
The house is situated on hundreds of acres of protected farmland that has been farmed by my family for 300 years. Right now the farm grows crops: wheat, hay, and corn. We no longer have farm animals.
The backyard view is a small swamp/pond, farm fields, sunsets and sky. Deer, wild turkey, just some of the local life in the fields. If you are very lucky you may catch glimpse of the otter family who lives here. Owls at night. Coyote.
Pool is open, non-heated. June and July and August, the water temperature is fine.
In the house, furnishing is minimal but comfortable, with cozy spaces to read and talk. It feels small and big at the same time.
This property is close to one of the only wild trout streams in Connecticut. Just down the road, at the Talbot Wildlife Management area, you can follow a pretty brook with a charming trail to a brook swimming hole that you will have to yourself. For local history, explore the old graveyards down the road.
This house sleeps 6 comfortably, willingness to be creative could fit 8, although close for that.
Fantastic place for friends getting together for an individualized yoga retreat, family reunions, couples who want a whole house, family gatherings. Great for those who enjoy off a stay the beaten path, or want a country setting without being totally backwoods.

If you are a runner, fabulous local runs if you head out of the driveway and to the right, and then at the end of the road, a left.
The lone tree you see in the field in the west is depicted on the back of the Connecticut Quarter, as an emblem of the Charter Oak of the Constitution. The artist who designed the Quarter used this tree as a model.

Friend to the earth and sky.
"A kid, thou hast fallen into milk"
I am a farm kid with a background in performing and dance. Hosting, for me is a creative space and offering. I veer towards the esoteric, the personal. "Agriculture is the mother of all arts" I have traveled quite a bit, many of the fabrics in the house are from countries I have shared soil with. Mostly, this home is a way for me to share my family's 300 year history farming this land, in the most personal way. Welcome!
