Property descriptionListed exclusively by Madonna & Phillips Group at William Pitt Sotheby's. Set back in privacy on 26 acres, the historically significant main residence, known as the Warner House, comprises two separate houses: "The Bridgewater House" — a C.1820 center-hall clapboard colonial that fronts the driveway, and "The Roxbury House" — a C.1789 saltbox and former tavern which was relocated from a Roxbury estate to Greyledge Farm in 1939.
The prior owner — a prominent attorney with a strong affinity for architecture — retained the Boston-based architecture firm of Perry, Shaw and Hepburn (the same firm retained by John D. Rockefeller to design and build Colonial Williamsburg), to site and integrate the two homes in an architecturally consistent and complimentary manner. The result is a primary residence of 10,000± square feet and a masterpiece of architectural design, comprised of 10 bedrooms (four with fireplaces), multiple living/family rooms, breezeways lined with French doors, two outdoor terraces, a library, office, nine fireplaces, a chef's kitchen, and a dramatic candle-lit dining room that can comfortably accommodate large seated dinners for 24 people.
The integration was effected with the introduction of the lower profile center section of the house which includes a living room, additional reception rooms and staircases, a large tack room, and the construction of an English basement in the Roxbury house to provide additional staff living quarters.
The current owners undertook a comprehensive renovation of the home, related HVAC and well infrastructure and exterior surroundings, including rebuilding 1,500 feet of stone walls in the immediate vicinity of the house.
The Pool House is comprised of a combined living/dining room with fireplace, a full kitchen, two changing rooms, two full baths, and two large bedrooms. It is located approximately 100 yards from the Main House, affording both an attractive visual landmark as well as an alternative living venue for privacy or large gatherings of weekend guests.
The Warner House Estate sits at the gateway to the Litchfield Hills, only 80 miles from New York City. It is one of the most spectacularly situated properties in Litchfield County.
