This antique and sculpture filled, light-splashed two story home on Connecticut's Antique Trail has big indoor and outdoor lounging areas on a beautifully landscaped one acre garden setting just three minutes from Woodbury's historic town center, 'Connecticut's Most Charming Little Town!' The rambling 2,800 sq. ft home was a former bed and breakfast property and comfortably sleeps eight persons. The ground floor includes: a spacious Eat-in Kitchen with a Skylight; a large Dining Room has a wide table seating for 8 persons next to French Doors to the enclosed sun porch at the far end and a cozy Reading/Lounging area in a large bay windowed alcove overlooking the garden for bird watching at the other end; a Formal Living Room with another set of French doors to the beautiful three season sun porch; a cheery half bathroom is near the front entrance; a Master Bedroom with a queen sized bed, French doors to the private rear garden, a large walk-in closet, and an en-suite Master bathroom with a double sink and walk-in shower; and, a washer and dryer in the pantry off the kitchen. The three bedrooms upstairs all have comfortable beds, noise blocking windows, black out roman shades, and red oak floors. There's a large bedroom with a king sized bed, Danish modern cabinetry and Japanese artworks. The king bed can also be converted into two twin sized beds upon prior request. The other two bedrooms have queen sized beds. The upstairs bathroom is sunny and roomy with good lights and mirrors. The cotton linens, from the comforters to the pillows, are all soft, clean, and laundered with free and clear detergents. The sky light in the kitchen area makes getting up in the morning a good thing with fresh brewed coffee and the opened French doors to the tranquil rear garden. Another dining option is outside under the covered porch where you may have a leisurely enjoyed brunch party at the table that seats six. The adjoining three season sun porch is the perfect light filled venue for hosting afternoon drinks or evening cocktails as the setting sun is dappled by the big sugar maple outside. The chef's kitchen is fully equipped and totally at your disposal. Three good grocery stores and the 4.5 star New Morning Market and Health Food Store are nearby for your food shopping convenience. Most guests, however, prefer to fully enjoy their stay here and choose instead to eat out at at the 5 excellent restaurants, several diners, delis, and pizza places nearby. Yippie! You don't NEED to use the kitchen! With prior notice your luggage may be dropped off early so that you can get a jump-start on your holiday. There's ample, convenient off-street parking. The home has excellent WIFI internet accessible throughout the house. There's no cable service; but, there is Roku smart TV and a small TV/dvd player. All the bedrooms and bathrooms have door locks. Each bedroom has electric outlets at both bedsides. The downstairs master bedroom has surge protected outlets. The home has central air conditioning. This property is a no smoking, no pets home. The attached garage/barn is an artist's live/work studio with its own and separate road access, private entry, and parking. Please contact me if you have any questions or special requests. I hope to meet you soon! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 71893119001More
