More detail on the property and neighborhood...
Property – 44 Wykeham Road was built in 1910 and is a classic turn of the century colonial cape of wood-frame construction with a steep, pitched roof with end gables, a central chimney, and exterior porch. In 2013, DeWitt Brothers Development acquired the property in foreclosure. The home had been left vacant for over a year and was in deep disrepair. DeWitt subsequently completed a renovation to restore the home while modernizing the kitchen, baths, and major systems, inclusive of all new plumbing, electrical and oak flooring. The home is located in the rural town of Washington near the Gunnery School. The property features three bedrooms, two full baths, a modern kitchen with dishwasher and gas stove, washer/dryer, and two acres of land.
Neighborhood – 44 Wykeham Road is located in Washington, CT, which is known for its picturesque countryside, historic architecture, and active civic and cultural life. The town is in the southern foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, approximately 80 miles or one and a half hour drive north of New York City. Given its convenience and beautiful New England setting, the town has strong ties to New York City and is home to many cultural and business elites, including James Taylor, Christine Baranski, Graydon Carter, and Scott Rudin. Successive generations of Washington residents have actively supported land conservation efforts, and their gifts of property and conservation easements to local land trusts have yielded large tracts of permanent open space. As such, town residents have access to over 2,000 acres of hiking and walking trails. This includes Steep Rock Reservation (750 acres), Hidden Valley Preserve (650 acres) and Macricostas Preserve (360 acres).
