Marcel Breuer’s Gagarin House I Designed by legendary Bauhaus architect…
New to Market
A true country estate, this circa 1884, European-styled converted stable and carriage house offers 5,055 sq ft of living space comprising 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms on the very best road in the historic town of Litchfield – less than two hours from Manhattan.
A wooded quarter-mile drive leads to 16.48 acres of exquisitely private property, meadows and woodland, within walking distance to Litchfield town Green, bespoke shops, and eateries. The Connecticut Historical Commission described this architecturally distinguished building as “superbly proportioned and detailed and ranks as one of the most significant late-19th-century structures in Litchfield.”
Originally part of the Goddard Estate, this granite and cedar-shingled building with octagonal copper clad tower is rich in history while updated with modern comforts including new designer appliances, marble kitchen island, 11ft ceilings, original post-and-beam construction, and one of the largest granite fireplaces in New England.
Rigid insulation has been installed in walls, and the original fumed pine beadboard replaced. Second floor has three full baths with marble floors and shower stalls, claw foot tubs, and decorative arltique fixtures.
Preserved barn and hayloft on second floor has unlimited potential for artist space or apartment. Original stables on lower level, new multi-car garage, fieldstone outbuilding, meadow, cistern. Delightful as a horse property, exclusive wedding venue, or potential orchard and vineyard. The stone carriage house can serve as an added artist studio, workshop or storage space.
A must see for those valuing quality architecture, privacy, upside potential, and history.
