To the casual passerby, along the north side of Hale St is dense woods. To those who are coming home, a familiar turn leads them to the small bridge that crosses over Stony Brook. You have just entered your own 30+ acre secluded retreat, under 2 hours from Boston, Springfield, Hartford, Providence, New Haven, Worcester, Albany, and other northeast cultural and financial centers. Stony Brook meanders for nearly a mile along one side of the property and is stocked annually, by the state, with rainbow trout and brown trout. The sweeping meadow, immediately to your right after passing over the bridge, contains Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, perennial ryegrass, red clover, white clover, and Timothy grasses. Further along towards the house you pass two conjoined steel outbuildings: The larger building measuring 80’ x 60’ with 3 garage doors and 600 Amp underground electrical service & the smaller building measuring 40’ x 36’ with 2 garage doors, the combination of which might serve perfectly as an indoor arena with an attached multi-stall hay barn. Built to the side of the smaller of the steel buildings is a 17’ wide x 35’ deep trailerport. Further on you pass the Saltbox-style 4-car carriage shed (with a 3-year old roof and a loft - 42’ wide x 30’ deep) where you keep a portion of your car collection. Then the house: A custom Contemporary with 3 large bedrooms and 2 full baths, spacious master bedroom with full bath and slider to a private deck. There is hand-tooled burled maple throughout the house, an open floor plan with maple and granite kitchen, cathedral ceilings, skylights, comfy/cozy pellet stove, Drainvac® wet central vacuum system & 3-car attached garage. Passing through the sliders in the kitchen, dining room or living room takes you to the expansive Trex® and pressure-treated deck system, occupying nearly 2,500 sq ft, overlooking the other side of the meadow with a nice view of Stony Brook. One part of the deck system wraps around the house, which includes an enclosable, heatable and covered party deck area. The other part surrounds the above ground pool and includes an enclosable, heatable and covered 16’x16’ cabana. You are conveniently located near Bradley International Airport and downtown Suffield. Welcome home.
