Inspired by the great Nantucket summer homes, this magnificent lakefront residence is carefully sited on 72 private acres overlooking one of Litchfield County's most serene lakes. Designed by renowned architect Peter Talbott, the home is wonderful example of the Shingle Style, the architecture of the American summer. The property boasts over 700' of direct water frontage with a private dock on North Spectacle Lake, one of only a few private lakes in Connecticut. The grounds were carefully planned with spots dedicated for a swimming pool, tennis court, and orchard. On the water's edge, there is a private dock, fire-pit, and boat storage shed as well as approvals and architectural plans for a matching Shingle Style boathouse directly on the lake. The home's interior is classic with a modern twist -- generously proportioned rooms, high ceilings, huge windows embracing the lake views, and easy access to the expansive deck. The fabulous kitchen opens to the great room with its soaring ceiling and fireplace. The mahogany paneled library has a fireplace and custom built-in shelving. The upstairs features a wonderful master bedroom suite with lake views and includes sitting area, his-and-her dressing rooms, and a lavish bathroom with soaking tub and steam shower. Additionally, one will find three lovely light-filled bedrooms suites. The lower level is complete with a blockbuster home theater as well as two guest suites.
