This Connecticut country estate is absolutely delicious, with a pool, gorgeous gardens, and room to run around. It also hearkens to a time when a second home wasn’t a long journey from a primary residence, says Deidre Woollard:

These days we tend to think of second homes as being located as a plane flight or at least a several-hour car ride from the primary residence, but it wasn’t always this way. In the days before cars, a smaller distance might provide all the respite necessary.

Case in point: Weather Watch Farm, a country estate in Litchfield, Connecticut. The 28-acre estate offers rolling green vistas and tranquil meadows just as it has for centuries. The estate includes a colonial farmhouse that dates back to the 1800s and was once home to the Howe family among other residents.
