Welcome to the stunning Judah Woodruff Estate, loving known as The Cedars. A spectacular, historically significant, 1764 Georgian Colonial designed and built by the founding father and architect of the village of Farmington. The “wings” additions from 1910 create the perfect “Gadsby” flare and period grandeur. Sited on 2.65 lush acres surrounded by perennial gardens, fruit trees, outdoor private patios, original barns, wrought iron gates and grand stonework beckons all to enjoy living New England history. This 20-room grand Homestead features 7 bedrooms, 5.2 baths, all preserved to perfection with 7 original and unique hearths, exceptional millwork, wide board floors, library, a grand solarium, formal dining, 37×20 Cherry wood raised panel living room, and the expansive country kitchen with multiple pantries and service areas. Even though this home can handle the largest of gatherings in the common rooms, you can escape to private office spaces, the library, reading nooks, a light-filled art studio and music room or just stroll the gardens and sip tea on the patios or porch. The beauty, elegance, and welcoming charm has established this property as a true one of a kind representation of New England’s best! A rare opportunity to become the next Steward of this fabulous estate.
