161 West Mountain Road Washington CT 06793
Priced to sell. Exceptional bucolic setting of 56+ acres is the backdrop for this iconic mid-century modern designed by renowned architect Tom Babbitt. Located in one of the most desirable areas of Washington, the main residence is masterfully sited to harmonize with the surrounding landscape and offer impressive views and ample privacy. The 56.68-acre estate property is pure New England — complete with vintage stone walls, open fields, perennial plantings, undulating topography, and a bounty of mature trees. The parcel includes a long, tree-lined drive that leads to the 4-bedroom residence with a second-story overlook deck, flagstone patio, gunite pool, and a secondary structure with a squash court, indoor pool, workshop area, and garage. With an ample 1,500± ft of frontage along West Mountain Road, the property also lends itself to a possible subdivision. Built in 1970, the home’s many original features include a fireplace made from field stone harvested onsite, slate and oak flooring, exterior redwood siding, numerous built-ins, and custom walnut cabinetry. The interior has an open and informal layout with the sky-lit master bedroom suite cleverly located at one end of the main floor and three secondary bedrooms on the ground level, which has direct access to the outdoors. Newer mechanicals replaced in 2020; land is currently without easements so major gifting opportunities may exist. Family in residence so please do not drive up driveway without an appointment.
