Designed by architectural firm Gray Organschi - Il Poggio delivers on a vision many desire, few will accomplish. As you enter from a quiet country road, a modernist form rises from the hillside as the promise of serene relaxation, active endeavours, intimate gatherings, and memorable events unfolds. Walls of glass enhanced by the natural beauty of wood and stone frame unobstructed views of the landscape from every room. One level down you'll find the indoor activity center with a saltwater pool, hot tub, sauna, showers, squash court, movie theatre, family room, and game room. Venture outdoors to clip herbs from the kitchen garden, start seedlings in the greenhouse, practice yoga on the balconies. Follow the custom crafted foot bridge to the private spring fed pond. Swim or paddle a canoe on the pond, play tennis on the lighted courts, or tinker in the hobby barn. Stroll to the edge of the hillside to the folly - reminiscent of a Roman amphitheatre where family and renowned musicians have performed. Explore 106+ acres of Il Poggio before retiring with a glass of wine from the cellar in front of one of many fireplaces. Enjoy gatherings in the grand kitchen overlooking views of the pond or relax in one of five en-suite bedrooms with spa inspired baths in the main house - four with a wood burning fireplace. With a three bedroom guest house, and bunks for four in the grass-roofed tennis house there's room for many to stay in this enclave unlike any other in the Litchfield Hills.
