FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – One hundred fifty-four acres of private, majestic property on the New Canaan/Wilton line, including an 8,000 square foot horse barn? Check. Double-kitchen with adjacent flower-cutting room? Check. Two helicopter landing areas? Check. 

This property, Quiet Lake Estate, is for sale, and it can be yours -- for $42 million.

Presiding over the grand estate is a 10,000 square foot Tudor-style mansion built in 1928 and completely rebuilt in 1988. Laid out on its three levels are 17 grandly designed rooms, including a top-of-the-line kitchen with a Viking stove and warming oven. There are also 11 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. And what mansion would be complete without a wine cellar that holds more than 2,000 bottles?

There is, of course, much more. This is an outdoors and equestrian haven: the 154 acres of lush landscape includes two freshwater lakes, a pond and – if your guests are feeling bored – a fully stocked trout stream for authentic fly-fishing.

A free-form swimming pool (complete with a waterfall) sparkles in front of the pool house. And there are two separate 2,000-square-foot guest cottages – if you’re bored of your guests – each containing three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen.

Your herd of horses will be happy with the five miles of twisting, turning gravel horse trails. Not to mention a mahogany-constructed, 12-stall barn that sits on the estate, with 8,000 square feet of interiors, including a bedroom, five bathrooms, a granite kitchen and an entertaining room -- complete with a wall of glass windows that overlooks a 10-foot waterfall. And a 295- by 85-foot riding arena, seven paddocks and a one-third-of-a-mile trotter track round out the equestrian facilities.

The eight-car garage also has additional storage space. But if driving doesn’t intrigue you, there are two areas of the property that can accommodate a helicopter for the 18-minute flight to New York City.

You can check flower-cutting room, equestrian facilities and fly-fishing off your list of must-haves, and trot over to 144 Huckleberry Road.

The Quiet Lake Estate is being offered by two Christie's Real Estate Affiliates: The Higgins Group and Barbara Cleary's Realty-Guild.

Well, Tim T, I'm sure the owners are most disappointed your check will not be forthcoming. Imagine, a high roller like you seeing an unsatisfactory kitchen in a 10,000 foot mansion. I can only imagine how appalled you were! I'm sure you overlooked the fact that the stable only had 11 stalls and just TWO tack rooms.
The nerve! Time to switch meds pal, or perhaps simply up your dosage.

Tim T:

Already checked it out..Did not like the kitchen cabinets so afraid its a no go.

Do not despair Tim. There's always Green Demolition! Ask the dear real estate agent to knock off a $1/2m to cover the cost of kitchen remodeling. Don't let this thrill on Huckleberry Hill get away! Also be sure to inquire if its stables can accommodate your collection of Ferrari prancing horses.
