West Wind Hill, a bespoke country estate on 389± acres straddling Kent, Connecticut and Amenia, New York, sits on the crest of a plateau overlooking panoramic protected views. The classic stone and shingle manor house with formal courtyard is sited perfectly to experience spectacular sunsets and fairytale mists combined with the upmost in privacy. Although only eight minutes from the center of Kent and less than two hours from New York City, access is via a private gated road that winds through trees, past old stonewalls with glimpses of open meadow and a serene pond.
Spacious rooms perfect for entertaining include a large great room with a soaring peaked ceiling and a 20’ stone fireplace, a sun-filled formal dining room with three exposures, and a huge Chef’s kitchen with a massive stone fireplace and adjoining catering kitchen, marble paneled powder room, and mud room. Beautiful reclaimed chestnut floors, exquisite detailing and numerous banks of windows and French doors make this an unparalleled home.
The paneled library, office, and master bedroom suite are located on the first floor in a private wing of the house. Of course there is a billiard room, complete with mini-kitchen, full bath, and adjoining guest bedroom. A second floor master-size guest room has a beautiful bath with soaking tub and deck that faces the amazing views. Two bedroom suites with ensuite bathrooms, a charming peaked children’s bedroom and a well-appointed office complete this floor.
The extensive, recently renovated, lower level contains a media room with 9’ screen, half bath, wine tasting room, and wine cellar with adjoining prep kitchen for large gatherings. In addition, there is a sunny laundry room, craft room, and gym with ground level access.
Beautiful stone steps lead down to a stunning natural stone pool and a tennis court. There is also a two-story pool house with spiral staircase, full kitchen and full bath. The expansive two building maintenance court also contains a pumping system for irrigating the lawns and gardens.
