There’s nothing like an easygoing lifestyle by the lake. “Own the waterfront home of your dreams. This beautifully sited home is located on over two acres along the shoreline of Lake Lillinonah,” said Patty McManus, Realtor with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Northern Fairfield County Brokerage. “There are so many wonderful features to this home,” says McManus.

Built in 2001, the custom-built 5,748-square-foot direct waterfront home is located on 2.14 acres at 14 Hidden Brook Drive in Barkwood Falls, a private neighborhood in Brookfield. “Hidden Brook Drive is a circular street, so there’s no traffic other than the residents who live there and their guests. It’s a great street for taking a relaxing walk or a quiet bike ride,” she says.

A magnificent entry reflects the home’s high style décor. “When entering the open two story foyer you’re greeted by stately columns, an elegant chandelier, and a beautiful travertine floor. You can see the pool and lake through the living room windows that are directly across from the entrance.”

The home’s open floor plan makes entertaining a breeze. The gourmet eat-in kitchen will have you oohing and ahing every time you walk in. “It’s the heart of the home,” says McManus. This amazing space has a spacious center island; granite countertops, some with shelving; two pantries; wood cabinetry; a double sink; a tiled floor; and recessed and pendant lighting. Appliances include a gas cooktop; a double wall oven; a microwave; a refrigerator; and a dishwasher. For ease of entertaining there’s a butler’s pantry with a sink, a granite countertop, cabinetry, a wine chiller, and a wet bar. The kitchen has a separate breakfast nook for casual meals. French doors offer access to the patio and pool area.

The kitchen flows effortlessly to a comfortable yet stylish family room detailed with custom built-in bookshelves; hardwood floors; recessed lighting; and a ceiling fan. A dramatic, fieldstone, floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace with mantel provides a warm ambiance. French doors open to the patio and pool area.

Two-story windows serve as an artistic yet practical feature in the formal dining room and living room, flooding the rooms with light and offering views of the immaculate property. Enjoy entertaining in the dining room adorned with white trim; a vaulted ceiling; two stories of windows; recessed lighting and a chandelier; oak hardwood floors; and a neutral palette. Equally attractive is the living room with its nine-foot ceiling; two-story, floor-to-ceiling gas log travertine fireplace; oak hardwood floors; and walls of windows that look out to the infinity edge pool and lake.

Indulge in the peacefulness of the main level master bedroom suite. “The room is tucked away and is very private,” says McManus. This space has two story windows; a vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan; oak hardwood floors; three closets, including a walk-in closet; and a separate dressing room with a sink and extra cabinetry.

A luxurious master bathroom is well-appointed with granite counters; a marble floor; neutral tile; a large linen closet; a Jacuzzi bathtub surrounded by windows and tumbled marble tile; and a large walk-in shower with a separate hand-held sprayer.

The upper level features three additional bedrooms, all with nine foot ceilings; ceiling fans; and direct access to a full private bathroom. Two have a walk-in closet; one has French doors with a balcony/deck overlooking the pool and lake. An enormous office with built-ins and a playroom with neutral carpeting; track lighting; and windows complete the upper level. “The office could also be used as a library or hobby space since it has built-ins and offers plenty of work space.”

Additional amenities include a laundry room; a security system; an energy-efficient GeoThermal heating and cooling system; an attic with pull-down stairs; a three car attached garage; a wine cellar; a workshop; and invisible fencing. A lower level, measuring the entire footprint of the home, features a full, unfinished, walk-out basement with a garage entrance that’s ideal for storing boats, jet skis, cars, and more.

The incredible beauty of the home is continued to the exterior. A circular paved driveway offers entry into the meticulously-maintained property detailed with a variety of mature landscaping. An underground irrigation system keeps everything perfectly watered. The star of the property is its heated, gunite, in-ground pool surrounded by an expansive bluestone patio. “My absolute favorite feature of this home is the infinity edge pool that has sweeping, unobstructed views of Lake Lillinonah,” says McManus. The home has ideal lake access through the side yard for launching your boat or jet skis. “Enjoy long summer days boating, jet skiing, kayaking or swimming from your private dock.”
