Today's favorite is our newest listing at 114 Bee Brook Road in Washington, CT. This wonderful vintage home has a few surprises. You have your very own gate into Hidden Valley and all the trails and beauty inside, your own built in pool and your choice of either renting the accessory apartment or renovating the space it and using it as a large master suite, and last but not least, a "secret room".
The house is charming, certainly holds the original character of a 1930's home. The large eat in kitchen is the heart of the house and opens to the dining area and the family room with a fireplace surrounded by local pink granite. The parlor is in the front of the home, with hardwood floors, wonderful light flowing in the windows, a very comfortable room. Arriving upstairs you come to large hall with extra closet space. There are three bedrooms and a full bath upstairs also. Underneath the carpeting upstairs are hardwood floors.
The secret room. From one of the bedrooms you access the attic. Walk up the stairs and to your left is a finished room that was used by the children of the home as their secret hide-a-way, their very own play house. I can think of many uses for this "secret room", a quiet office space, a reading room, a book nook, or a child's secret garden inside the home. The other side opens to attic storage.
Over the two car garage and accessible from the family room is the accessory apartment. There is a large studio type living room/bedroom combination with closets, a full kitchen and full bath. There is a separate entrance at the back of the home to the apartment. The owner has rented it successfully over the years, but has used it for her office space most recently. It could stay as a legal apartment to bring in a bit of income to the new buyer to help with mortgage payments, or it could be renovated and make quite the amazing master suite! This looks over the built in pool in the back yard.
Hidden Valley Preserve is right behind the house, there is actually a gate into the 650 land trust. For anyone who doesn't know about Hidden Valley Preserve, it is part of Steep Rock Association, one of the oldest land trusts in Connecticut. I have hiked into Hidden Valley many times over the years and am always amazed at the beauty in every season. The old railroad bed along the Shepaug River makes for an easy walk, or you can take some of the many footpaths through the preserve.
