The five-bedroom Colonial house sits on over 17 acres of land in Litchfield, Connecticut, far away from any city hubbub. To add to the calm, the property comes with apple trees, a frog pond and mountain views.
This Colonial-style home features a classic layout of the style, with five windows above, four below and a centered front door. The home's white clapboard siding is also indicative of its Colonial style.
Symmetry is key for this colonial-inspired home exterior. Tall twin shrubs and sage-green shutters flank four windows, balancing the front of the home. An off-white portico and front door, painted the same color as the house, blend with the siding's color for subtle definition.
