Renovated 28-acre Connecticut farm hits the market for $10M
Property includes three houses, a three-seater outhouse and sweeping river views
Three’s company at this 28-acre restored farm in Washington, Connecticut that just listed for $9.5 million.
Owner Kevin Comer has put the 250-year old Hedgelawn Farm up for sale after completing a long renovation of the three houses on the property, the Hartford Courant reported.
Comer led the redesign of all three homes on the farm –– his firm, City and Field Design, specializes in adaptive re-use for architecturally and historically significant properties, according to its website. Comer bought the farm at 191 Roxbury Road in 2007 for $2.8 million, according to Compass. He began renovating the barn house, guest house and cottage in 2013.
Ten years later, the renovations are complete, and Rick Distel and Susan Vanech of Compass have the listing.
“It overlooks that entire river valley for miles in either direction,” Comer told the publication. “It was one of the oldest farms in Litchfield County. Very few owners. It’s kind of a storied property.”
In total, there are nine structures on the property, but only three are residences. Comer renovated the 4,500-square-foot, three-bedroom barn house, 2,800-square-foot, two-bedroom guest house and one-bedroom cottage with all modern designs. The former tobacco farm also has a pool, six-car garage, three-stall horse barn and a three-seater outhouse.
Properties at this price point rarely come updated, modern interiors, Distel told the outlet. “What we’re seeing with our other buyers is they’re willing to pay up for certainty, and not having to deal with materials and contractors. So I think that’s like a big gold star for this property.”
