A Classic Country House in Connecticut For Sale

There are 7 bedrooms and 8 baths.   P.S. Boy, did my blog have a rough weekend.

The homeowners wanted “a new old house” with traditional details like the wraparound mahogany porch, antique wide-plank oak floors, and hand-hewn beams from a barn in Canada.
