Perched on the crest of a plateau overlooking panoramic, protected views, West Wind Hill, a bespoke country estate on 389 plus acres, straddles Kent, CT and Amenia, NY. Experience this truly magnificent classic stone and shingle manor house sited perfectly to experience lush sunsets and fairytale mists with the upmost in privacy. 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.

Beautiful reclaimed chestnut floors, exquisite detailing and numerous banks of windows and French doors make this an unparalleled home.
The master bedroom suite which includes paneled library, separate office workspace and large bathroom and dressing areas--is located on the first floor in a private wing of the house. Of course, there is a billiard room, complete with mini-kitchen and bar, full bath and adjoining guest bedroom/office area. A second-floor master-sized guest room has a beautiful bath with soaking tub and deck that faces the amazing mountain views. Two bedroom suites with ensuite bathrooms, a charming peaked children's bedroom and a well-appointed office area complete this floor.
The extensive and 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.
