    Did they really hire those people to do that in pic #3? Never seen that before. I mostly like it except a few weird elements. Like the stove overhead and the fireplace in pic #8.

    I keep on thinking this is located in California or Italy for some reason though…

      Re pic #3-is that an electrical cord going into the fountain?

        I was trying to decide if it was an electrical cord or a water hose. It looks electrical. Nothing says “Italian Realness” like having electrical wires running across the piazza into the fountain.

    Is this a house or a convent? I have to admit that the exterior is a very good copy of a northern Italian farmhouse. But, for almost $9 million, it should look a little better than a family farmhouse. The interior continues the convent theme; the austere furnishings just don’t work and the whole inside really needs help. But, some of the spaces are interesting and it could be nice. I hate the wall sconces in the great room, and despise the use of statuary in various places, and those would be the first things to go. Like Lime said, the stove vent hood would also go quickly.

    This just seems so freezing to me. I don’t really like any of it.

    In looking at these pictures, I wonder what the bedrooms look like. I agree with you guys, this home doesn’t seem intimate or even homey. It seems like an event center of some kind.

    Pretty fancy rehab center you have here! Oh it’s not?! Whoops! How about a rentable vacation home? No? Oh I see someone in a pretty dress! This must be a place to get married and such! Wrong again?! So… someone actually lives here. OooohhhKay…

    Honestly I kinda dig it. I really like the farmhouse feel and I really like some of the details inside. It’s. Just. So. Boring. I’m not sure but this is either too authentic or not authentic enough. I can’t decide. This place is capable of fabulous photos if it were spruced a bit. 121 acres sounds amazing! For $9 Million I would just adverstise it as an event center or a vacation home and build my own home elsewhere on the property. Maybe sell off a few acres and within a few years you might make most of your money back in rental income. It’s a win-win!

    Either way, someone needs to step in and make this home more comfortable. It’s got some massive potential. I can see it! And one thing is for sure – this is certainly unique for Connecticut!

      It certainly is unique, and I’m all for being different, but something in my head just kept screaming that this doesn’t belong in CT. Hopefully they find someone who disagrees with me to buy it.
