West Cornwall Village Home With Apartment – Surrounded by gardens and beautiful stonework, this stately 1830s homestead is ideally situated in the village of West Cornwall overlooks the Housatonic River and is just a stone’s throw from the iconic covered bridge. A graceful front entry highlights the center staircase and meanders to the Living Room, Eat-In Kitchen with a large Pantry, and then the back Enclosed Porch. The spacious and level lawn feels deceptively large and is filled with stunning gardens and a quintessential, rustic Artist’s Barn – a true oasis of tranquility in the heart of the village. The upper level of the main home offers three bedrooms and a Full Bath with a soaking tub. An additional full bathroom is on the main level. A walk-up attic with stunning floorboards could be converted into bonus space. To the right of the Main entry Foyer and Covered Porch, there are private entry doors to the attached apartment. A large Living Room with a fireplace and door to the backyard also leads to the Eat-In Kitchen. There is a Full Bath on this main level and an additional bedroom and Full Bath on the second floor of the apartment. Enjoy the best of country living from this village home that brings you to the heart of the Litchfield Hills outdoor recreation and beauty.
