    Description

    "Rock Gate" is one of Washington, Connecticut's, premier estates located on 3 private landscaped acres near the much sought after residential area around the Washington Green. This rare gem, a 2013 Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation award winning home, is a perfect blend of Gilded Age craftsmanship and romance, coupled with all modern amenities. The 9,000 square foot residence, designed in 1885 by noted architect Ehrick Rossiter, as a "summer cottage" for his wealthy Brooklyn clients, offers 8 bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms, 2 laundry rooms, 8 fireplaces and a heated gunite pool with a woodland backdrop. The spacious ground floor perfect for both easy living and elegant entertaining, includes a bright and sunny modern kitchen that opens to a spacious breakfast room/conservatory, a separate dining room, a wood-paneled music room, cosy study, library, living room, a "Titanic style" grand staircase and a sweeping back porch. Rock Gate, is within convent walking distance to the Mayflower Inn and Spa, the Gunnery School, the Post Office and even "downtown" Washington; while at the same time the home's unique location is on one of Washington's most private and prestigious roads that leads directly into Steep Rock Land Trust and its 44 miles of woodland walking trails. The property also includes a three-car detached garage that offers second-floor space for a guest apartment or studio.
