Fabulous New Offering
Designed by the architectural firm Gray Organschi in collaboration with an intentional owner - Il Poggio delivers on a vision many desire, few will accomplish. As you enter the property from a quiet country road, a modernist form emerges as if rising from the hillside. Inch closer to portico entrance and the promise of serene relaxation, active endeavours, intimate gatherings, and memorable events unfolds. With walls of glass enhanced by the natural beauty of wood and stone, unobstructed views of the lush landscape come into view from every room. One level down you'll find the indoor activity center with a saltwater pool, hot tub, sauna, showers, squash court, movie theatre, family room, and game room. Sunny days beckon all to clip herbs from the kitchen garden, start seedlings in the greenhouse, or practice yoga on the balconies before venturing down the custom crafted foot bridge to the private spring fed pond - the hub of outdoor activity. Swim or paddle a canoe on the crystal clear pond, play tennis on the lighted courts, or tinker in the hobby barn - an architectural masterpiece unto itself. Stroll to the edge of the hillside and find 'the folly' reminiscent of a Roman amphitheatre where family and renowned musicians have performed. Winter days are filled with opportunities to explore 106+ acres of Il Poggio on snowshoes or cross country skis before retiring with a glass of wine from the cellar in front of one of many fireplaces. When the day is done, enjoy gatherings in the grand kitchen overlooking views of the pond or relax in one of five en-suite bedrooms in the main house - four with their own wood burning fireplace and spa inspired bath. With a three bedroom guest house, and bunks for four in the grass-roofed tennis house there's room for many to stay overnight in this private enclave unlike any other offered in the Litchfield Hills.
