Beautiful Tuscan Mansion atop Carter Hill


Over 11,000 square feet of meticulously constructed improvements custom designed to embrace the spectacular setting atop nearly 100 peaceful, private acres. Amid the acreage are a main house, guesthouse, gatehouse, infinity-edged saline pool and pool house, gardens, and even a small vineyard.

Casually elegant, the design is a tribute to classic architecture with a decidedly Tuscan feel while featuring the latest state of the art technology:  inviting, comfortable, and exquisitely beautiful.    Perched atop the highest point of picturesque Carter Hill, the house enjoys a 360°, unspoiled panoramic view.  Large arched true-divided lite windows and matching glass doors hand crafted in Italy coupled with soaring ceilings, perfectly frame the horizon – stretching across the rolling hills and mountains of Litchfield county as far as the Catskills of New York on a clear day – blurring the distinction between land and sky

The quality of the construction—it took almost 2 years -- is without compromise. The exterior is constructed of hand cut stone and authentic stucco, the roof is made of hand split cedar shingles, the floors emanate radiant heat from custom made stone tiles that were hand made and kiln fired in Siena, Italy.  Interior walls are covered in Venetian plaster. The mechanical systems are also of the highest quality. Remotely controlled and monitored: Alarms, video surveillance, lighting, temperature and irrigation are all technologically advanced. Every element of this property has been meticulously planned and executed.  For those who demand nothing but the best – this is it.
