On the Market: Updated Easton farmhouse comes with barn and riding ring

EASTON — The equestrian property at 426 Judd Road blends the hominess of a farmhouse with a host of modern updates on a site abutting the natural beauty and miles of trails of Aspetuck Land Trust.

It’s “a unique combination of charming 1930s architecture with walls of stone and interesting rooms, a chic updated kitchen and bathrooms with large living spaces and many options for private spaces,” said listing agent Susan Leone, of Higgins Group. “All this in an alluring setting with a pond and barn for horses or other animals with direct access to 45 acres of walking and riding trails.”

The home’s foyer features the original stone fascia and built-ins. First-floor French doors open to a wraparound deck with views of the grounds, which include Willows Pond, a shed, garden and riding rings.

The sunny living room offers a large picture window and an original fireplace and opens to a sunroom with walls of windows. The dining room includes a whitewashed brick fireplace.

The updated kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a Viking range, granite countertops and a breakfast area. A den and study offer quiet space to work at home.

The primary bedroom suite with balcony overlooking the pond offers spacious closets and a marble bath with oversized shower, skylight and vaulted ceilings. A second bedroom has an en suite bath, built-ins and a window seat.
