A charming cottage is up for grabs in rural Connecticut. The 1,200-square-foot home, originally built in 1946 but recently remodeled, is sited amidst state parks and nature preserves near the historic town of Washington. Offering one bedroom, a sleeping loft, and an updated kitchen and bathroom, the turnkey property is ready to serve as a full-time home or weekend getaway.
The symmetrical floor plan is anchored by a central living area, with the kitchen and primary bedroom on opposite sides. Windows along the front facade fill each space with natural light—enhanced by additional clerestories placed along a vaulted ceiling in the bedroom. An additional sleeping and storage area is located above the living room.
The fenced, .3-acre lot also features a bluestone patio and a native plant garden. Beyond the property lines, hiking opportunities abound at Lake Waramaug State Park, Macedonia Brook State Park, and Macricostas Preserve—all just a short drive away.
