Steeped in New Canaan history dating back to the 1700's and featuring 17.5 picture-perfect acres surrounded in towering evergreens, open fields dotted with fruit trees and beautifully-maintained gardens, Extown Farm is the quintessential New England Farm. With the feel of idyllic country living and forever-protected under deed of conservation, it's a convenient and easy one hour to NYC and a short distance to lively town center. The bucolic compound is centered by the original farmhouse with wide random-width board floors, hand-hewn beams, plank doors and beautiful fireplaces with antique mantels; now ready to incorporate state of the art amenities to create a sophisticated residence ready for today's style of living. Set to the side, a three-bay garage has a gym and an upper apartment with kitchen and full bath overlooking a sweeping meadow. Winning numerous architectural awards, an exquisitely restored farmhouse cottage includes a front sitting porch, a Great Room with clerestory windows, fireplace, chef's kitchen and two light-filled bedrooms. It's perfect for guests or extended family. An antique side barn is a fun party barn or for added storage. Finishing the magical grounds, the magazine-worthy collection of outbuildings includes a hobby house, a main barn with silo, wood shed, a chicken coop, turnkey shed, smoke house and large raised bed vegetable garden that takes you back in time just for a moment.
