About 23 Kane Mountain Rd

Please call listing agents Madonna & Phillips at 860.800.3344 to tour this special property.

Covering an 85-acre promontory in the most desirable area of South Kent, this exclusive estate is one of the most beautiful and storied offerings to hit Litchfield County. Accessed by a half-mile private road, the 3,500 square foot home sits on a high plateau that delivers complete privacy and affords unparalleled mountain views east and south—sweeping from South Kent to New Preston, Roxbury and beyond. It's fronted by majestic stone walls and a seasonal freshwater stream, creating an enchanting backdrop for elegant entertaining and serene modern living.

Previously featured in Architectural Digest, the fully renovated main residence is a restored re-imagination of a classic New England farmhouse, equipped with an array of modern amenities and designed with abundant, grand-scale windows that seamlessly capture the surrounding vista and gardens. The 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath home is a bright, open living space with wide plank oak flooring, beamed ceilings, gourmet kitchen and five floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces. Designer details include Marvin Integrity Windows, Waterworks Studio, Miele Appliances, custom cabinetry, and Hamilton Sinkler hardware. Additional updates include a finished ~1,100- sq/ft lower level with full bath, all new baseboard heating, plumbing and electrical.

Outdoor amenities are highlighted by an immense stone loggia overlooking the view, a sparkling gunite pool, and an authentic Civil War-era cabin—moved to this site from Indiana—that is both a pool cabana and a rustic guesthouse with fireplace, kitchen, bath, private sleeping loft, and a covered porch poised for relaxing and enjoying the view. The private estate also boasts a greenhouse, a 2-stall horse barn, and separate 6-bay garage with 1,000 sq/ft loft.

Potential purchasers have the option to consider a variety of configurations for the 85-acres—offering flexibility as a stunning family compound with a potential additional building site high above South Spectacle Lake with views to Lake Waramaug.

A truly unique opportunity to own a piece of Kent history and one of the prime trophy estates in the area—all within 5 minutes to Lake Waramaug and Bulls Bridge Golf Club, as well as easy-access to the area's extensive hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and nature observation opportunities on the Appalachian Trail and the 252-acre nature preserve at Camp Francis, as well as biking, swimming and picnicking near Kent Falls State Park.

Kent's 50 square miles contain two state parks, three private schools, two covered bridges, and one of the oldest Native American reservations in the country. The Housatonic River is a mecca for fly fishing, canoeing, kayaking and tubing. Skiing is available within minutes at Mohawk, or 45 miles to the Berkshire Mountains.

For those with more cerebral interests, Kent is considered by many to be the cultural capital of Litchfield County and has long been home to artists and writers who enjoy its inspirational natural beauty. Sleek contemporary art galleries and shops are tucked behind its Main Street and monumental outdoor sculptures unexpectedly pop up between shops. There's a range of restaurant choices, as well as bookstores, world-class music, the annual Kent Film Festival, and Kent Presents.

The town of Kent is approximately 90 minutes from Manhattan and is just minutes from Metro North train service.
