THE HOUSE WITH THE GREEN DOOR French Chic Exemplary attention to detail throughout the interior, the grounds, gardens, and the pool house exemplify a blend of the home's Colonial and Federal history with and as the owner states a very unpredictable French feeling.Every room is an entity unto itself with each room drawing you into the next and then back again and it all begins by entering the home through the whimsical lime green Federal front door. The large foyer with massive staircase leads to the library with fireplace and built-ins, formal dining with fireplace, light-filled formal living with fireplace and herringbone floors leads to a triple aspect garden room with radiant heat. Each room personifies attention to detail.There are five fireplaces. The kitchen is open and spacious.The second and third floors offer eight commodious bedrooms and five full baths.The grounds offer formal and informal retreats with room for tennis courts and croquet, a stunning pool and jetted tub are overlooked by a prodigious pool house filled with details including a fully appointed kitchen, full bath with laundry. A cobblestone driveway meanders through the 3.93 acres past a carriage barn with a spacious apartment above, a greenhouse and expansive open lawns all surrounded by protected land. The interior and exterior presentation lend themselves to an exemplary country living in the heart of Litchfield Village within walking distance to fine dining, entertainment and historic delights.
