Perched atop gently pitched, beautifully manicured grounds is this luxurious 5 Bedroom/4.5 Bath Contemporary Cape set in the Berkshire foothills in the picture postcard village of Sherman, Connecticut. Stonewalls frame bluestone walkways leading to both front and side entrances. A level backyard hosts an in-ground gunite pool, with an adjacent hot tub and outdoor kitchen - all surrounded by beautiful stonework. The sprawling interiors offer a serene atmosphere and are designed with an open floor plan on the main level, that features 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and crown molding throughout. A cozy eat-in kitchen offers a gas log fireplace and bay window and is connected to a gracious family room. Adjoining the kitchen is a tastefully designed formal dining room and an intimate den with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and gas log fireplace – one of 5 in the home. There is an elegant and spacious main level master bedroom suite, complete with a gas log fireplace and a private screened-in porch. Four upper level bedrooms provide their own level of comfort, each connected to a private bathroom. Located less than a half mile from the prestigious River Oaks Golf & Country Club and near the Appalachian Trail and the Housatonic River. Area amenities include skiing, boating on Candlewood Lake, hiking, fly fishing and of course golf! A sumptuous escape for both weekend and full-time use, yet just 90 minutes to Manhattan and 10 minutes to Metro North Trains.
