Up on Music Mountain – Chic artist’s Cottage on a scenic country road set on forty plus acres abutting the Housatonic State Forest. The property has been in the same family for close to 100 years and includes the house and two car garage on 26 acres and a separate 14 acres across the road. The home features a spacious kitchen with ample room for a center island plus a sitting area making it a wonderful space to relax and entertain. From here, one finds a light-filled dining room with vaulted ceiling, a cozy living room that opens to the covered front porch and deck, a home office, and finally the main floor primary bedroom. Up one level, there’s an additional bedroom, a half bath, and small studio space. The property is very private and is a lovely mix of open pasture as well as forestland. Numerous outdoor pursuits await including hiking the Appalachian Trail, kayaking or fly fishing the Housatonic River, or renting an e-bike in neighboring West Cornwall to explore the Litchfield Hills.
