325 Old Mountain Road, Farmington, Connecticut 06032
APPLETHORNE - Welcome to one of Connecticut's most storied estates. Completed in 1934 by the Lee family, this multi-generational home sets the standard for genteel country living. As if created by Hollywood to depict the signature New England home, Applethorne is proudly sited on over seven acres of open land, offering mature heritage trees, verdant lawns, and exceptional equestrian facilities. The home itself exudes pride and history and has been impeccably maintained by the current owners. The residence enjoys a spacious and thoughtful floor plan with generous public rooms, a warm and inviting kitchen with professional grade appliances, cozy corners for curling up by one of 5 fireplaces, and generous bedroom suites for the entire family. Complete the crossword in solitude in the sunroom, then later in the day the terrace beckons as a gathering spot for cocktails and conversation. A lower level game room and two wine cellars welcomes fun and memories. Summer days are enhanced by the gloriously oversized swimming pool. For the horse enthusiast, Applethorne's barn and outdoor riding ring are in excellent condition. Truly a best of both world's living experience, with the sanctuary and luxury of a country estate, yet so close to the best shopping, dining and entertainment districts throughout Farmington and West Hartford. This would be a perfect full-time residence, or a second home for those needing respite from New York City or Boston. Don't miss this opportunity.
