The space
Our castle was built in 1917 on seven acres by a prosperous Ellington family whose trip to England had inspired the fulfillment of a childhood dream to own a castle. In early 2000, a brilliant artist purchased the castle and dedicated five years to refurbishing and beautifying it. The kitchen is modern with new appliances, the dishwasher having been replaced last year. Downstairs there is a large dining room, a living room with a fireplace, and an inside porch guarded by a medieval knight.
Upstairs, each spacious bedroom announces a theme: the jungle room, the Romeo-Juliet room, and an elegant burgundy room with a balcony and bistro set for morning coffee. The grounds offer gardens, a fountain, a gazebo by a pond, and a pergola overlooking another garden with a gargoyle hunched on its pedestal. There is also a trail for leisurely walks up and behind the woods. Points of interest: Bradley Airport, Mark Twain Museum in Hartford, The Bushnell, and The Atheneum Museum are all 20 minutes away by car. Crystal Lake and Shenipsit Lake are less than ten minutes away. Also, 1.5 hours from Boston and 2.5 hours from New York City.
