Access pictures & info:
This Cove Road (Lot 87) is arguably the best lot/location (approx. 2.1 acres) in the original 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 several upscale 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. Barkwood Falls comprises an original and a newer subdivision, with the original primarily developed and built out during the 1970s and early 1980s, while the new subdivision was built out starting in the late 1980s, with most activities in the 1990s.
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. NOTE that this is NOT a raised ranch, as the lower level is above grade on the front. 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 the oil fired furnace. Electric central A/C by forced air in concealed ducting in attic.
Great Location - Upscale homes
Waterfront homes are located on the opposite side of Cove Road and on the lakeside of other roads in the subdivision, many are in the $1 million class. This home is among the least expensive homes in the subdivision. Commute distance to Stamford, Greenwich, White Plains, even to Manhattan. Walk to lakefront common area (only for subdivision homeowners) on Lake Lillinonah (Housatonic River) with boat docks, beach and picnic areas. Short driving distance (less than 15 minutes) to beautiful Candlewood Lake. Google Map Location
Some Recent Sold & Listed Homes in Barkwood Falls
Access a listing with sold and listed homes in Barkwood Falls (original and new subdivisions). This page includes a map showing the additional area of the "new" subdivision. Data is obtained by internet search in May 2015 by Owner. Owner is not responsible for the accuracy of the information. It is recommended that you conduct your own research.
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. Owner's listed price of $695,000 is very attractive considering that 8 Cove sold over 2 years ago for $624,000, although Zillow currently has the neighboring 8 Cove Road home valued at less than $500,000.
These 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.
