Presenting the David Tod House built in 1795 with the highest quality materials in a time when fine craftsmanship in homes was the hallmark of success. This estate is one of Suffield's most elegant historic homesteads. Upon entering the front gate you are taken back in time by the lush landscape and stately presence of the residence. The home was lovingly restored by the present owners and has all the current amenities today's buyers desire, while maintaining all the the original artistry that a home with this prestigious history would be adorned with. The first floor has a comfortable mix of formal and informal living areas, including, two sun rooms, a breakfast room, butlers pantry and a gourmet kitchen with a restored icebox ready to be filled for the next big gala you want to plan. The second floor has a master suite with private bath, dressing room, sitting room and balcony for morning coffee. There are 4 more generously sized bedrooms with full baths for family and friends to enjoy plenty of privacy. The back staircase leads to an additional apartment for in-law/au pair/service quarters with full bath and kitchen. The lower level has an original 18th century tap room reinvented to offer a media room, pub, wine cellar. More recently finished space offers a sauna, workout area, and game room. This prestigious estate is connected to its historic barns with a multilevel gazebo, and large slate patio overlooking 8 acres with an English garden and a gently curving brook.
