Known as “Jean’s Farm,” the 18-acre Connecticut property that literary great Mark Twain bought for his daughter in 1909, is for sale for $1.85 million. Located in Redding, the estate at 325 Redding Road includes a farmhouse built in 1787, an antique barn and a studio. While it has been recently renovated, the sprawling estate maintains its rustic charms (h/t TODAY.com). Residents of the five-bedroom, three and a half bathroom home have access to lots of open space and greenery, as well as a heated gunite pool.

The home’s living room boasts Carlisle hickory floors, antiqued ceiling beams, a mudroom and new doors and windows. On this floor, French doors lead outside to a fire pit with a flowering garden. The kitchen features Cream Marfil marble counters, custom-made cabinetry and Gaggenau premium appliances. Plus, there is a built-in banquette dining area and a breakfast bar.

 

The barn, constructed in the 1860s, has been converted into a full apartment. The finished attic currently features a playroom and sports court, an art room and a gym. The property also includes a separate art studio with a 1/2 bath.


Outside, the firepit, lush gardens and heated pool provide a peaceful oasis and scenic views.
