The original cottage was built in 1938 with the 2-story addition built in 1948. Inside you will find an open living space, including a spacious vaulted living room with beamed ceilings and 2 sets of French doors; one accessing the open deck for sunbathing or star-gazing, the other to the screened porch overlooking the stream where you can unwind to the sound of rushing water. But the true centerpiece of the home is its historic living room fireplace and mantel, brought intact to the cottage living room by Joseph French Johnson from Alexander Hamilton’s NYC brownstone.

On one of Kent’s most bucolic roads, and set back at the end of a long gravel drive with a dramatic mountain backdrop, you will find the hidden jewel that is Red Gulch Farm. Bordered by Kent Falls State Park and Connecticut open space, you can trust that no one will disrupt your sound of silence.
The 77-acre property was named after “Redford” Kohlsaaht Johnson, the first owner who purchased the property in 1938. A complete history of the property is available upon request.
