Our home

Our peaceful and private sprawling home of 75 squares (7500 square feet) is perfectly perched on 6 acres on a country scenic road in New Milford Connecticut. It is a special place, well lived in, warm and inviting including a large swimming pool, covered verandah with 8 person table, outdoor sofas, barbeque, weber, manicured gardens and is as gorgeous in summer as it is white and magical in winter.

The huge country kitchen is the heart beat of our home with a massive 12 feet x 8 feet island, AGA oven, double door refrigerator gas fire place, informal 8 seat rustic dining table and opens up to a light filled family room with 46” inch TV, another gas fireplace, stunning country views and is the hub of our home. The Master Suite is on the ground level and has a King Bed (crib and toddler bed if needed), double French doors opening to a patio, double shower, sunken bathtub jacuzzi and a his and hers closet with massive amounts of storage. There is a pool table room, formal dining, gorgeous double office with 60” TV, butlers kitchen, large laundry and additional 2 ½ bathrooms on the ground level.

Upstairs are an additional 3 bedrooms including one Attic Bedroom (800 square feet) with a queen bed and 2 twin beds. It has its own modern bathroom with tub and shower, built in desk, picturesque window views and huge walk in closet. The other 2 bedrooms (one double bed and one queen bed) share a Jack and Jill Bathroom with independent vanity area, shower and toilet. Again the views are spectacular.

Downstairs in the basement there is a full size granite bar, large lounge and games area with another queen bed, futon sofa and more beds and space if needed. The best part is the 9 electric reclining seat movie theater with 120” screen. There is another large bathroom for guests to enjoy and double French doors access to the outside.

We have a 3 car garage and can discuss cars, motorcycles, boat and jet ski possibilities. We are a short 7 minute drive to the beautiful Candlewood Lake, 15 miles long and have our boat docked there.

We are 5 minute drive from the New York border and 75 miles from New York City and you can easily drive or train to enjoy our favorite city with the train station located just 30 minutes from our home. If a country drive through New England is preferred we are centrally located to Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire – some of the most lush and breathtaking scenery.

In New Milford there are many shops, restaurants, Movie Theater, grocery stores, Starbucks, a charming quintessential New England town steeped with history all only a short 5 minute drive away. There are so many activities close by including Appalachian Trails, Farmers Markets, Breweries, Antiquing, Connecticut Wine Trail, Star Gazing, Connecticut’s largest flea market in town, Sherman Playhouse Live Theatre, 28 miles of Scenic Drive North on Route 7 (see Covered Bridges, Bald Eagles, waterfalls, rolling hills) with many quaint little towns and places to visit. The possibilities are endless....

Who we are

  1. Bernie is from Canada and Kara is an Aussie and we are blessed with 4 children, 3 adults, one son living in California, one son in Washington DC, eldest daughter at college in Pennsylvania and 1 adorable 8 year old little girl still home thankfully. Bernie is an engineer and travels all over the Northeast and Kara works with special needs adults helping them to find work. We have lived in the USA for the past 15 years with a few years in sunny San Diego. We are a foster family and lucky enough to have shared our home and hearts with 16 little girls over the past decade. Now it is time to share our home with others and explore the world. We are ALL avid travelers and love to explore and experience different countries and culture. There is no place off limits and so many possibilities. We are happy to arrange our home and decorate for weddings, family reunions, special events, Christmas (our favorite season) and provide whatever is needed to make our very special retreat unique and comfortable....we cannot wait to let the ADVENTURES begin!
