Description

Experience functional country livability, conceived in the mid 20th century and well maintained since, that still looks fresh today. With 1000 ft bordering the Marshepaug River and a stone's throw to the Milton Green, a Historic Hamlet of Litchfield near the Cornwall line, this stunner is refined yet feels easy breezy in keeping with its natural surroundings. The original owners of the home were General Bernard McGinnis and his wife Glenna McGinnis, who, during her tenure as editor at Woman's Day magazine, designed and brought this welcoming Cape-style home to life. She showcased it in the May 1967 edition, in short, calling it, "a durable, workable, livable, low-maintenance, easy-care, foolproof dream" house. The thoughtfully planned layout encompasses five bedrooms, including a main level primary suite with an adjoining bedroom/study and an additional full bath. Expansive living and dining spaces are complemented by a charming three-season sunroom for effortless entertaining and relaxation. The vintage-inspired kitchen, with many original built in accessories, a spacious panty and quaint service bar overlooks back lawn and river. Adjacent to the kitchen, the family room with fireplace opens onto a brick terrace, ideal for alfresco gatherings with a scenic river backdrop. Crown moldings, hardwood floors, custom built-ins throughout the living spaces accentuate the home's character. Upstairs, three additional bedrooms, spare room, a third bath. Practical amenities include a workshop, an attached two-car garage with a breezeway, and three generously sized attic spaces for storage. Despite its feeling of privacy, this location hugs the historic village green and is a few miles to town center, shopping of Litchfield and Bantam and a myriad of outdoor recreational opportunities, including nearby lakes, hiking trails, and skiing destinations. New propane furnace. Whole house generator. New Septic 2019.
