This Cove Road (Lot 87) is arguably the best lot/location (approx. 2.1 acres) in the Barkwood Falls subdivision among non-water-front lots, offering great views through large picture windows, yet with privacy. Barkwood Falls subdivision is regarded as one of the finest subdivisions in the greater Danbury area, beautifully situated on the west shore of Lake Lillinonah (a part of the Housatonic River). The Town of Brookfield offers excellent schools and a well run municipality. Barkwood Falls comprises an original and a new subdivision, with the original primarily developed and built out during the 1970s and early 1980s, while the new subdivision was started in the late 1980s.
This home was custom built by current Owner in 1979 to the highest construction standards, on Lot 87 in the original subdivision. Total living area is approximately 2980 sq.ft. of which about 1900 sq.ft. is on main (upper) floor and about 1080 sq.ft. on lower floor, in addition to large 2-car garage and utility room on the lower level. There is no traditional basement area as the home is built into the hillside. Large dual pane energy efficient picture windows through-out make the interior very bright and friendly. Cost efficient oil fired hot water baseboard heating throughout. Hot water for bath and kitchen is plentiful, also supplied through oil fired furnace. Electric central A/C by forced air in concealed ducting.

Comparisons - Sold Homes in and near Barkwood Falls
Access a spreadsheet with SOLD homes in and near Barkwood Falls. Data is obtained by internet search on June 11, 2014 by Owner. Owner is not responsible for the accuracy of the information.
The most interesting comparative data is about the sale of 8 Cove Road (next door) in February 2013 for a reported $624,000. 8 Cove Road is about the same living area (3,038 sq.ft) as 6 Cove Road (2,980 sq.ft). The main differences are that 8 Cove has in-ground pool, newer kitchen and newer flooring. Owner's listed price of $539,000 is very competitive considering that 8 Cove sold nearly 18 months ago for $85,000 more.
The internet real estate sites of Zillow and Trulia are seemingly low-balling their estimated market value of 6 Cove Road, in the opinion of Owner, probably because they don't have sufficient information upon which to make a more realistic valuation. The reason for this is that the home has never sold before, the public info available is minimum, and Owner has owned this home since it was built in 1979.
