From the Zillow listing:


The exquisite Cobble Hill Farm with its 187 acres of bucolic countryside is representative of all that makes Litchfield County so special. Nestled on a beautiful pastoral hilltop with complete privacy and ever changing views this country compound is highlighted by an historic brick Georgian Manor house set amid extensive flower gardens, lush shrubbery and hedges, specimen trees and an orchard. Elegant yet understated, it radiates a sense of warmth and comfort. Classic detailing, floor to ceiling windows, French doors opening to an impressive covered brick porch that is anchored by monumental double height columns, rich paneling, wood floors and multiple fireplaces are among its many features. An eat-in kitchen, family/recreation room, cozy library, solarium, formal dining room and expansive living room all offer the versatility of intimate family gatherings or large scale entertainment.  Numerous renovated outbuildings adjoin the Manor House including three quaint and charming independent residences currently used as a guest house, an office and a caretaker’s house.  A covered brick patio leads from the main house to an artist’s studio. The horse barn with a cobblestone courtyard, tack room and equipment storage is truly spectacular.  A second barn with extensive garaging and storage as well as a nanny’s apartment, a third barn for hay storage and farm animals and an antique maple sugar house complete the farm.
