THE MAPLES at KENT HOLLOW
Welcome to "The Maples at Kent Hollow". Centrally located in Litchfield County with views of Kent Hollow and minutes to Lake Waramaug and the village of New Preston. This country estate is one of the earliest homes in New Milford and recently went through an extensive two year restoration and rebuild uniquely blending old world character with “sleek, chic” modern function and design.
Every detail was the masterful work of the noted designer and artist owners including an 18’ Statuarietto Cararra marble island in an expansive state of the art custom kitchen with in room dining area, breakfast counter, two additional nooks plus a butlers pantry with appliances and fully outfitted wet bar. Visible antique timber post and beam framing, custom millwork throughout, grand sunlit rooms and vaulted wood ceilings form magical interior and exterior spaces designed for casual luxurious living and entertaining. The end result is an exquisite environment for the most discriminating tastes.
Every fixture and structural design choice underscores the level of integrity and unparalleled style of the best of the best modern day designers. This secret sanctuary’s timeless, chic presence commands its well-deserved attention all the while hiding the elaborate engineering, mechanical, electrical, technological, structural, energy efficient eco friendly details that make this home one to be enjoyed and appreciated for generations to come.
Arriving at the home, you are met with a two and a half car classic saltbox carriage style garage and hillside saltbox potting/tool shed.
A bluestone sweeping sidewalk brings you into the mudroom or around to the rear of the home with an optional entrance into the screened porch or back kitchen entry.
Exiting the mudroom you enter the kitchen with an astonishing eighteen foot long island comprised of two full slabs of imported Statuarietto Cararra Marble. The custom built island includes twenty seven full extension and soft close drawers with polished nickel pulls, seven cupboards, and a recycling center as well as counter height seating for four.
Directly off the kitchen on chefs side of the island is a state of the art butlers pantry with an Electrolux top of the line wall oven with double convection ovens, a Miele built in microwave, a Miele built in plumbed coffee system nestled in an abundance of custom cabinetry providing overwhelming storage and u-shaped marble work surface counter.
The vaulted ceiling with original exposed hand hewed beams in the corners and the pegged mortise and tenon beamed joinery above are charming reminders of how homes such as this were built hundreds of years ago. The tongue and groove board ceiling and ship-lap walls frame the awning window with northern views over the entry gardens and across the rolling greenery of sloped fields.
