A one-of-a-kind country estate steeped in history that was the home of renowned author Philip Roth. Offering total privacy, the property is set on 147 secluded acres of rolling meadows with mowed paths, orchards, woods, a pond, majestic mature trees and antique stone walls. The main house was built by Benjamin Carter, a member of one of the founding families of Warren, CT, c. 1790. It is an important example of the Federal Style and an early use of a Center Hall plan. The three-bedroom main residence has three fireplaces, original wide-plank hard wood floors and a magnificent great room with vaulted ceiling, antique post and beam and fieldstone floor. On the grounds are an in-ground swimming pool, a vintage barn and Roth’s writing cottage, which contains an additional wood-burning fireplace and fieldstone floors as well as a vaulted ceiling, kitchenette and full bath. Roth, bought the house in the 1970s and gradually added land to it over time. Initially it was his country retreat but eventually became his year-round home, during which time he wrote many of his important novels, including American Pastoral (for which he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1997), The Human Stain and Zuckerman Unbound.
