This unique equestrian property was built as a barn for horses and hounds by John LeMay, former master of the Litchfield County Hunt. LeMay, who was also a master carpenter, later converted the main floor to a two bedroom residence with an open floor plan kitchen/dining and living areas. Designed with cozy comfort in mind, each spacious room features large windows, and ample closet space. The three season porch which overlooks the horse turnout offers frequent glimpses of deer and other wildlife; including rabbits, bobcats and wild turkeys. . The lower level includes a small rental/mother-in-law apartment as well a “barn” area with three 3-4 stalls, and room for tack and feed storage. Because the town of Bethlehem permits a broad range of uses on residential property, this home and surrounding six acres offers many possibilities for the businessman, small farmer, artist/hobbyist or tradesman. Current owners, a writer/artist and equestrian, found its quiet, secluded location surrounded on three sides by hundreds of protected wooded acres, the perfect environment for both caring for animals, and creating works of art. Located in the increasingly desirable NW corner of Bethlehem, the house is minutes from the quintessential New England towns of Washington and Litchfield, where Steep Rock Park and The White Memorial Foundation offer some of the most beautiful multi-use trails in CT, as well as opportunities for canoeing/kayaking.
