Welcome to Buttonwood Manor, a classic Connecticut compound with over 8 acres of rolling lawns, gardens, patios and woods surrounding you with the beauty of nature all year round. The main house, part of it dating from the early 1800s, has been lovingly renovated and expanded over time with many recent upgrades. Contrast the convenience of the newly built mudroom entry and renovated cook's kitchen to the charm of the wide plank oak floored dining room and living room, both with handsome wood-burning fireplaces, and you have the marriage of convenience and charm. The main house boasts 4/5 bedrooms and 3 full baths, including a bedroom suite on the main living level with its own entry, a glass enclosed sunroom, wood paneled library with bookcases and a fireplace, and a home office. A separate guest cottage is adjacent to the in ground heated Gunite pool and includes 1-2 bedrooms, full bath with changing area, a great room and kitchenette. Relax under the poolside wisteria covered pergola and enjoy the surrounding beauty. A 2 stall horse barn with electricity and water and a fenced in paddock can be used for horses or can be a great party barn. Up to 5 horses are allowed on the property and the property is believed to be subdividable. This quintessential country estate offers an idyllic lifestyle for nature lovers, equestrians, or anyone looking for the essence of relaxation and beauty about 5 minutes North of the Merritt Parkway and South of Pound Ridge.
