Even Fido Lives in Style at This Waterfront Compound Outside New York City


Listing of the Day

Location: Middlebury, Connecticut

Price: $5.75 million

This waterfront compound on Lake Quassapaug offers a range of outbuildings, including a two-bedroom guesthouse, a boathouse with an office, a pool house with a kitchenette and a four-season dog house.

“It’s a stunning compound,” said listing agent Jill S. Sloane, of Brown Harris Stevens. “You rarely see a property that offers seven structures, and I’ve never seen a pet house before. It’s a cute little log cabin that is heated and cooled.”

The 6-acre property is quite private, she said. “You come in on a long tree-lined driveway and then it opens up to just sky and lake.”

The lake is also quiet because jet skis are not allowed, she said.

Along with the log cabin-style main house that was built in 2009, the estate also features a three-car garage with a guest room, a full bath and a cigar and wine room; and a two-story barn with a full bath and a loft.

The owner was “adamant that all of the furnishings be included because he had spent so much time finding them,” Ms. Sloane said. “It would take someone years to replicate what he’s done.”

A double-decker pontoon boat and an all-terrain vehicle are also included.

Amenities include a fire pit, a theater, a cigar and wine room, a wet bar, a rec room, multiple patios, and professionally landscaped gardens.

From the front door, you step into an open-plan great room with vaulted ceilings and a two-story stone fireplace. The kitchen features an island with seating, a beamed ceiling and hardwood floors.

The ground-floor primary bedroom suite offers a walk-in closet and sliding doors to a covered rear porch. There are four bedrooms upstairs along with an office/sitting room.

“What we’re really selling here is a compound,” Ms. Sloane said. “You can have multiple guests and everybody has their own space.”

Neighborhood Notes 



“This whole area is big for New York City weekenders,” Ms. Sloane said. “There is so much to do around here.”

It’s “just a couple of miles to downtown Middlebury,” which has lots of restaurants, she said. The town of Woodbury and the Quassy Amusement and Waterpark are also nearby.

The drive to Manhattan takes about an hour and 20 minutes, she said.
