Details &
Description

This stately, shingle-and-stone residence had been “chasing the market down” since 2013, starting at a list price of $10.9 million, which was reduced over time to $4.7 million by the time of the launch of the auction program. The auction terms offered a $2.75 million reserve price (meaning a bidder could acquire the property for a minimum of $3.025 million). The buyers in the marketplace did not see these terms as enticing enough to participate in a live auction. As validation for the buyers’ collective sentiment, the Property was then re-listed for $3.5 million, and sold for $3.05 million in February of 2018.

The Property is surrounded by land trusts and protected forests, preventing encroaching development and ensuring a lifetime of striking views of Kent’s famously verdant landscape. Its 42 private acres provide for added serenity and privacy.

The main residence offers 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half baths throughout two levels of luxury living. Many of the rooms open onto terraces, patios, or manicured lawns, emphasizing the Property’s connection to its natural surroundings. In fact, much of the stone used in the construction of the estate was repurposed from the excavated earth at the Property’s site, while the fine woods throughout the residence came from the Property’s felled trees (much of the wood being cut and processed by hand, on-site).

Impressive craftsmanship and detailing abounds – though the home was built in 2000, its warm woods and carved mantles speak to the rich architectural heritage of New England. Prominent amenities include lofted ceilings with exposed beams, a wine cellar, billiards room, eight fireplaces, an art/music gallery, gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, and a sun/summer room.

In addition to the main residence, there is also a separate artist’s studio and pool house (each offering one full bath), as well as a custom, infinity-edge pool with expansive views of the Iron Mountain Preserve.

An adjacent property (offered separately) sits on approx. 7 acres, and features a main residence of more than 2,300 sq. ft., in addition to a guesthouse of 660 sq. ft. In total, this adjacent property offers 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths. There is also a 2-car garage, and two private ponds on site.
