Set back at the end of a long private drive in an enchanting and completely private setting is a 1960's Contemporary that was once the home of renowned American portrait artist Herbert Abrams, whose mid century aesthetic inspired his original design of the house. The efficient open plan layout makes the most of the home's east west exposure and offers an ambiance of rusticity and charm. The centerpiece of the home is the L-shaped living/dining/sitting room with its large stone fireplace made of indigenous stone and two walls of windows. Two decks flank the great room - one to the east and the other to the room's west and leading down to a further deck and a 20' x 40' heated pool and screened porch. Original features include rough-hewn paneling and kitchen cabinetry, plus a distinctive Cawley-Lemay wood stove. The beautiful natural surroundings are interspersed with perennials, fruit and specimen trees and exposed ledge rock gardens. Great potential for improvement throughout, and the former detached artist studio, where portraits were painted of past Presidents (hanging in the White House today) and other luminaries, offers a potential rental apartment/guest house. An idyllic setting for an artist, craftsman and/or outdoor enthusiast, this is a secluded nature lover's dream. Nearby kayaking/swimming/fishing and miles of hiking trails, the home's location is under 2 hours from NYC and just minutes from both Kent and Lake Waramaug, with private beach access to Warren residents.
