One of Redding’s most significant properties, the 1768 Able Morehouse was built nearly 250 years ago in this small, picturesque town in the heart of Fairfield County. In 1902, Noble Foster Hoggson (a famed New York architect) redesigned the house in his version of the Colonial Revival Style; owners ever since have inhabited the bright, peaceful rooms, which include 6 beds, 5 full and 2 half baths in 6,385 sf.

24 acres of beautiful grounds and gardens (some of which were designed by Foster Hoggson himself) surround the main residence, and details like the reflecting pond and grapevine-covered arbors combine with the lovely surrounds to create a peace and serenity that belies the two hour commute to New York City. Newer additions include a heated gunite pool, cabana with covered outdoor dining, and an incredible 8,000 sf, two-story barn with radiant heat. The barn was built to residential standards to house a car collection, but would be easily converted to a luxurious equestrian facility.
