Candace Bushnell from Sex and the City Is Selling Her Charming Connecticut Farmhouse
Sex and the Country?
Are you a Carrie? A Miranda, perhaps? Maybe you’re a Charlotte, or even a Samantha. Regardless of your type, you may be interested to know that the woman behind one of the most successful television series of all time, Candace Bushnell, has put her Connecticut country estate up for sale. It’s close enough to commute for sex in the city and yet more than gorgeous and decadent enough for a little sex in the country.
Even if you’re a bit more like Mr. Big or Stanford Blatch, there’s something for you in this charming and beautifully updated listing at 253 Tophet Road in Roxbury, Connecticut. And if you’re like none of the characters from the book or show, there’s still something to be said for the neighborhood, the home itself, the grounds, and everything else that comes with this property.
Sex and Good Company
Candace Bushnell’s mini-estate is tucked into a discrete, private neighborhood that has long housed many of our national treasures. Arthur Miller, Walter Mathau, Frank McCourt, Alexander Calder and a number of other authors, artists, actors, and creative types have called the area home for more than the last century.
If you were to purchase this modestly-priced (by some standards at just under $1.4 million) estate, you could rub elbows with a veritable who’s who of American arts and letters, both past and present.
Sex and a Park-like Setting
The estate itself is situated on three acres of developed, park-like woods and open space, with a wonderfully preserved and tastefully updated 19th century Victorian farmhouse, a stand-alone two-car garage with a finished mother in law suite as its second floor, and a third building — a guest house with a large open area for entertaining, a full bath, a full kitchen complete with two ovens, a stone fireplace, library-like appointments and a stunning pool just off the back deck.
Sex and a Salt Water Pool
Massive, sliding Weiland glass doors open from the home onto a stunning Victorian porch overlooking an oversized saltwater pool, complete with a garden wall and views of the property. The mini-estate also includes an historic barn; an older apple orchard that is still producing fruit; an outdoor shower; a second two-car garage; and an established garden overflowing with plantings of irises, lilies, and roses.
Sex and Connecticut
Had Bushnell set the novel that became the basis for the TV series in her Connecticut neighborhood, the results may have been entirely different. Regardless, this charming estate, with its outbuildings and saltwater pool is perhaps sex in a more Connecticut style. Whether you’re a Carrie, a Samantha, a Charlotte, a Miranda, a Stuart, or Mr. Big himself, you’ll find something to love about this home in Roxbury.
