Gracious Country Home in Washington, Ct

Located in: Washington

Step back in time into a house steeped in history but beautifully restored with all the modern comforts and amenities. This historic 210 year old home was part of the original Underground Railroad running thru CT during the Civil War. The tunnel leading into the house is still intact. The house was built by one of the areas largest iron masters, Samuel Forbes for his daughter and son-in-law. The wedding trees planted upon their marriage still grace the front entrance.

Set on more than 2 1/2 exquisite acres with a beautiful private pond, a small barn, perfect rows of white hydrangea, fragrant lilac bushes and gardens, the Samuel Forbes House, built in 1799, has been impeccably restored over five years to its initial grand manor house splendor, and is available by the week, month or season at surprisingly affordable rates.

Graced with 11 foot ceilings, 12 over 12 windows throughout, and well proportioned rooms, the house can easily accommodate families or reunions and comfortably sleeps 6-8 people.  The house has a 4 zone heating system and central AC throughout. There are 3 wood burning fireplaces and 2 gas fireplaces upstairs.

The fully equiped kitchen will make any serious cook happy with a professional 6 burner, double oven Wolf stove, Bosch dishwasher, a large refrigerator and plenty of prep space. It opens directly to the spacious and light-filled 15' x 25' post and beam great room where you can relax in front of a roaring fire, watch television on the 42' screen or simply sit and read and take in the outdoors. This room opens to the outside with a French door leading to the deck with a large stainless steel DCS grill and a table for al fresco dining. On the side of the kitchen is the formal dining room which is 15' x 25' with a massive original keeping room fireplace. The table comfortably seats 12-14. Off the dining room a hallway leads to a beautiful guest room with a queen size Grange sleigh bed with its own perfectly renovated full bath with Waterworks fixtures and shower. Adjacent is the front parlor (15' x 20') with baby grand piano and wood burning fireplace. Mudroom and brand new LG washer and dryer complete the first floor.

A staircase in the Dining Room leads to the upstairs. On one side is the sun-filled master suite (15' x 30') with 3 exposures. Originally a ballroom with a vaulted ceiling, the room boast a paneled fireplace that has been fitted with natural looking Eiklor gas logs. The comfortable king size bed has Frette linens that you can really sink into, and a large bath outfitted by Waterworks. There is a large separate dressing room to complete the suite.

There are two additional bedrooms upstairs, one with red toile wallpaper and twin beds and the other with a full size antique iron bed and antique armoire. In between is a sitting room study with a paneled fireplace with gas logs and large flat screen TV over the mantel.  A bathroom with another Waterworks shower make these bedrooms a complete suite.

The house is about 4 miles from Washington Depot, the Washington Green, the Mayflower Inn and Spa, Winvian Spa, 3 miles from Lake Waramaug, Hopkins Vineyard, seven miles from Litchfield, and 8 miles to Kent.

Please call for availability.  All requests are confirmed by payment and a signed standard CT short-term lease contract.  Any occupancy of less than 30 days requires a 12% CT renter's tax.
