Location: Washington, Connecticut
An impeccably restored 1795 farmhouse estate has come on the market in Washington, Connecticut, and it’s quite the charmer. Set on over 12 verdant acres, the 3,370-square-foot home features seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, and several common areas.
What distinguishes this property are the gorgeous period details and paintwork, which include original wide-plank floorboards, multiple fireplaces, and wood trim. Each space boasts a different color scheme (as in this Georgian Colonial in New York): pale yellow in the main reception room, turquoise in the sitting room, red in the dining room, teal in the kitchen, and similar hues in each of the spacious bedrooms.
A deep, traditional red makes up the facade of the homestead, which includes outbuildings, a pond, heritage orchard, stone walls, and expansive pastures. Located at 34 Potash Hill Road—with views from every window—the property is offered at $2.85 million.
