: USA, Connecticut, Bloomfield
This historic stone mansion, located in Bloomfield, Connecticut, was built in 1936. It's a replica of a castle in Normandy, France.
A stone gatehouse entrance with a wrought-iron gate and long driveway make it very secluded. The mansion itself is made of granite boulders and hewn-oak timbers, and has two towers. Inside the front tower is the main entrance that leads to a dramatic foyer with vaulted ceilings, textured walls, and a wrought-iron circular staircase.
Doors at the end of the foyer open to a large stone patio overlooking the yard, pool, and guesthouse. Off of the front entrance is a small teak-paneled reception room. The formal living room is 40' x 20' with a 30-foot-high oak-beam ceiling.
A mansard fireplace with a copper hood sits at the center of the room. The formal dining room has pegged-teak floors, oak-paneled walls, and a large window with views of the yard. Inside the backside tower is a morning room with textured walls, high ceiling, working fountain, and a tiled floor with a compass rose at its center. French doors open into the dining room. The kitchen has a massive limestone island, granite counters, wood cabinets, wrought-iron cabinet handles, and two copper sinks. Venetian plaster lines the kitchen and service kitchen walls.
The rustic-style guesthouse has both indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a wooden bar with glass details, wrought-iron gate, and two stone patios.
The mansion underwent renovations and was restored to its original style 5 years ago. All of the furniture and decor complement the mansion's French Normandy style architecture. The floor plan is closed style. The entire downstairs (foyer, formal living room, reception room, dining room, morning room, service kitchen, and kitchen), front lawn, patio, backyard, guest house and pool area are available for rental.
Located in Bloomfield, Connecticut. About 20 minutes west of Hartford, CT, and an hour north of New Haven, CT. Approximately two hours away from New York City.
