With regional expertise and assistance from our collegues at William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, Michael Carucci proudly presents 200 Kenmont Road in Kent, Connecticut for $6,900,000!
Inspired by the great Nantucket summer homes, this magnificent lakefront residence is carefully sited on 72 private acres overlooking one of Litchfield County’s most serene lakes. Designed by renowned architect Peter Talbott, the home is wonderful example of the Shingle Style.
The property itself is unspoiled and boasts over 700′ of direct water frontage with a private dock on North Spectacle Lake, one of only a few private lakes in Connecticut. Access is available to the handful of property owners on the lake. The gracious grounds were carefully planned by landscape architect Dirk Sabin with spots dedicated for a swimming pool, tennis court, and orchard. On the water’s edge, there is a wonderful dock, fieldstone fire-pit, and boat storage shed as well as approvals and architectural plans for a matching Shingle Style boathouse directly on the lake. This spectacular property is located less than 2 hours to Manhattan; under 3 to Boston.
The home’s interior is classic with a modern twist — generously proportioned rooms, high ceilings, huge windows embracing the lake views, and easy access to the expansive deck. The fabulous kitchen opens to the great room with its soaring ceiling and fireplace. The mahogany paneled library, rounded within the turret, has a fireplace and custom built-in shelving.
The upstairs features a wonderful master bedroom suite with views overlooking the lake and includes sitting area, his-and-her dressing rooms, and a lavish bathroom with soaking tub and steam shower. Additionally, this home boasts three lovely, light-filled bedrooms suites.
The lower level of the home is complete with a blockbuster home theater ready to accommodate family and friends as well as two additional guest suites that open to the rolling lawn and footpaths to the lake.
