Things we love about this property crush:

Located in Litchfield County, this historic wood-clapboard home was built in 1834 and looks like something out of a classic movie—with all the updates and amenities.

The living room boasts a wood-burning fireplace, flanked by built-in bookshelves—ideal for sipping a glass of after-dinner brandy (it’s the kind of place you’d do such a thing). Or—take your tipple into the library if you so desire—where floor-to-ceiling bookshelves line three sides of the room, perfect for storing collection of leather-bound classics. There’s a pretty sunroom, too.

The modern kitchen features a Carrara marble island/breakfast bar, a stainless-steel Viking stove, Miele dishwasher, and Fisher & Paykel refrigerator. Three cozy bedrooms are housed on the second floor, and the master boasts a fireplace and more built-in bookshelves.

But the best part of this home is the outside: A massive yard with a stone terrace and garden of specimen trees surround a big gunite swimming pool.
