19 Golden Harvest Road, Roxbury, CT 06783
Perched at one of Roxbury's highest elevations, with hypnotizing views, lies the Golden Harvest homestead of master builder Ed Cady. The compound sits on a 26 acre parcel personally selected for its privacy, elevation and direct adjacency to the Roxbury Land Trust's 450 acre preserve. Using antique timber barn frames from upstate New York, he constructed the buildings that stand today. The main house exudes casual comfort, with hand-hewn beams blending seamlessly with modern finishes. There are five fireplaces in the main home, antique wide-board floors, native Roxbury granite and endless bespoke details that are so distinctively Cady. The spacious kitchen has a separate eating area, pantry and sun-filled greenhouse. The public wing of the home houses the great room, with soaring ceilings, never-ending views and room for both intimate and large-scale entertaining. The upper level houses two primary bedroom suites plus an office that is easily converted to an additional BR. The lower level includes a recreation room and full bath. The 1BR/1.5BA guest house - well separated from the main house - is a jewel with all the same Cady detailing and a deck overlooking the entire Shepaug River Valley. The barn has parking for 3+ additional vehicles and an in-law apartment above. Additional outbuildings give the property a rich historic texture. The craftsmanship and quality here is at the highest level, and the opportunity to own the "King’s Castle" comes up only once in a generation.
