Description

An ever changing, ever captivating, ever inspiring view - of distant hills, stunning sunsets, clear skies or a symphony of clouds, fog-shrouded mountains or a glorious moon - fills every room. Whether you're at the kitchen island, dining, relaxing in the sunroom or LR, in bed or in the bath, an exquisite and unmatched sky & landscape embrace you. Masterfully reimagined, redesigned & fully renovated, this mid-century modern home, once the retreat of famed artists, is aesthetically, structurally & functionally remarkable. The land, too, has been beautifully transformed, in appreciation of the unique beauty of the location & elevated 18-acre setting, overlooking Lover's Leap where Bridgewater & New Milford meet. Distinctive from its stonework & covered patio entry, it only gets better! Fully open kitchen, dining area, sunroom and adjoining LR feature a surround of windows, separated by an impressive stone FPL. The upscale kitchen features black walnut cabinets, huge island, granite & walk-in pantry. The kitchen & sunroom open upon lawn, gardens & rear patio. The upper level features a private PBR with sitting area & sleek modern bath w/heated floors. Wide windows overlooking the grounds highlight 2 add'l BRs. The LL BR/office with adjacent bath is ideal work & guest space. Here, too, the view is mesmerizing. Everything was made new in 2020, from siding & roof, walls & windows, heating & air, plumbing & electric, walkway & patios. A singular & wonderful opportunity! .88 of the total acres is located in New Milford. 17.72 acres in Bridgewater. There are possible sites for pool, outbuilding or guest quarters. This mid-century historic artist's home with scenic views was reportedly home to Western artist John Clymer, film director Mike Nichols, and famous wildlife artist Albert Earl Gilbert.
