Sherman's Strawberry Fields Farm Lists for $599K



This circa-1775 renovated Colonial on nearly 13 acres in Sherman lists for $599K.There’s not a housing style more closely associated with Connecticut than the stately Colonial, and an especially handsome model is on the market in Sherman, listed for $599,000. Called Strawberry Fields Farm, the spread comes with a farmstand fashioned from a post-and-beam barn from which the current owner, Carol Royal, sells organic produce, herbs and maple syrup. The 12.8 acres also offer a sugar shack, chicken coop, apiary, fruit trees and a stream-fed pond. When Royal purchased the foreclosed, circa-1775 property, she said she practically needed a Hazmat suit to step inside the main house. It was a labor of love to restore the wide-plank chestnut floors, four fireplaces, including one with a beehive oven, and exposed beams and wainscoting. Today the 3,200-square-foot interiors offer four bedrooms and four bathrooms. And, fun fact, it was likely visited by George Washington, who would have stopped by to see one of his military captains, William Giddings, the original homeowner. The farm is listed with Irit Granger of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
