Situated on a country road and contiguous to the Weantinoge Land Trust's 90 acre Hauser Nature Preserve is one of Litchfield's most charming c. 1790 restored antique homes. This incredibly special location affords sweeping eastern VIEWS over 25 acres of preserved grasslands, managed for bobolinks and other birds of prey including American kestrels, red-tailed hawks, and Cooper’s hawks. Current owners recently restored the original structure while preserving antique details. Major renovation married existing barn to original dwelling - achieving the space necessary to accommodate modern living. Features of this perfect country home include an updated kitchen with breakfast bar, new appliances, dining area and walk-out to covered porch. Sun-filled living room with painted wide plank floors, fireplace and built-ins. First floor bedroom and full bath. Barn renovation includes expansive family room with lofty ceiling and exposed beams, an office that can be used as an additional guest room, a full bath and laundry room. The upper level is comprised of a roomy master bedroom suite with hard wood floors, vaulted ceiling, chic full bath and plenty of closet space. A new foundation under barn allows for storage and garage for two cars, accessible from inside the house. Mechanical upgrades include electric, plumbing, propane heating system, central air and septic. Very rarely does one find a move-in ready, fully updated antique with such magical outdoor spaces. Do not miss this one!!!
