Description

Capture the history and grandeur of Great Elm, the unparalleled 19th century Georgian colonial estate that was once the childhood home of author and influential political commentator, William F. Buckley Jr. Nestled in the heart of Sharon, CT, this prestigious property is a rare opportunity to acquire a residence steeped in historical significance and architectural elegance. Great Elm boasts 8,872 sq ft of luxurious living space, crafted with impeccable design choices throughout. From the art deco bathrooms to the William Morris wallpaper, every room exudes sophistication and meticulous care. William Buckley Sr. purchased the original 1812 house in 1923, expanding it over time to accommodate his growing family. The main level primary bedroom suite and gracious sitting rooms, each with gorgeous detail and wood burning fireplace, open to the dramatic three-story Atrium, a year-round haven reminiscent of New Orleans. Upstairs are 7 beautifully appointed ensuite bedrooms, one of which is used as a gym; another as an office. This property is the anchor of a community of homes joined by an Association that manages the 50 magnificent, park-like acres and amenities, including a heated, Gunite pool, pool house, tennis and paddle/pickle courts. This spectacular property in the beautiful Litchfield Hills is more than just a residence; it's a chance to own a piece of U.S. history. Close to Hotchkiss, Salisbury, Indian Mountain and Millbrook Schools. Only 2 hours to New York City.
