Not far from the center of the quintessential New England town of Litchfield and its neighbor- Bantam- you’ll find an area of outstanding natural beauty —Shepaug Crossing. Here, on 280 acres graced with orchards, stone walls, and white fencing, 20 homes will be constructed that combine luxury with country elegance. In this peaceful setting at the foothill of the Berkshires and just 2 hours from New York City, home sites are nestled in orchard groves, in wooded settings near the Shepaug River, or in open meadows taking advantage of majestic views of nearby Old Mount Tom.
With more than 1/3 of the acreage and 3,000 feet of Shepaug River frontage dedicated to the Litchfield Land Trust, home sites are tucked into the landscape, carefully designed to protect the natural character of the area while offering expansive views and maintaining plenty of privacy. Part of the reason Shepaug Crossing feels different than other new neighborhoods is that the home sites are planned in a way that doesn’t interfere with the natural beauty of the space, with roads that follow the topographical contours. The other reason Shepaug Crossing is different is that while other developments of similar acreage might have 40-60 homes, only 20 will be built here.
Close by, there’s a bounty of recreation opportunities from hiking the nature trails at Old Mount Tom State Park and White Memorial Conservation Center to canoeing along the Housatonic River, boating at Bantam Lake, or skiing at Mohawk Mountain. After a day of adventure, winding down is easy at the award-winning Hopkins Vineyard located in nearby Lake Waramaug or the Arethusa Dairy store in Bantam offering its signature ice cream and cheeses made straight from milk produced on its Litchfield farm.
