Whether you’re searching for a summer and weekend estate or a full-time residence that feels worlds away but is just up the road from Danbury, CT, this lakefront property with a floating dock on Lake Lillinonah has a lot to offer. “The moment you drive through the gates, there is a lift to your mood,” says real estate agent Cecelia Santillo of Klemm Real Estate of the private, forested 33-acre estate in northern Fairfield County.
The original section of the home and two other stone dwellings on the property date back to the 1930s, when it was a luxurious family lake compound. “I think the home is for a young family with a parent that might want one of the other homes,” says Santillo. The main house is open and bright with an English-style conservatory, currently used as an office, that has full windows facing the woods and lake. The recently renovated kitchen and bathrooms have been appointed with high-end finishes, including marble in the bathrooms and soapstone counters in the kitchen.
“I love the walk-around decking and the trails to the lake,” says Santillo. Kayaking, boating and fishing are all at your fingertips. Lake views peek through the trees in the summer, but are full in winter, fall and spring. Outdoor amenities include a heated gunite pool and heated spa. Tech has been updated with two electric vehicle charging stations at the main house, hydro air and radiant heat, and a tankless hot water heater.
