I love taking a break from my daily routine with a little escape, and today's "fall dream home" is right up my alley. An opportunity to peek inside a home like this is once in a lifetime. Check out our tour of Rye House in Litchfield, Connecticut. A girl can dream, right?
From the plaster molded ceilings to the nine carved fireplaces, the craftsmanship is jaw dropping. Built in 1908 by famed Architect Wilson Eyre, this magnificent stucco and stone Tudor style home sits on 210 stunning acres and over the majestic Litchfield Hills, every room has an amazing view and what would this massive property be with out a private pond, a 70 foot pool with Jacuzzi, horse paddocks and trails and tennis court. There are a total of 9 bedrooms 6 ½ baths.
The home was restored by the current owners. No detail overlooked. The beautiful sitting room has a wall of windows overlooking nature as far as the eye can see. The formal living room is a grand space with an impressive floor to ceiling fireplace and leaded glass windows. At over 10 thousand square feet there is a lot to dazzle you.
If you're wondering how much this bit of history will cost you, the entire 210 acres and all are listed for sale at $8,650,000.00
