If you have $800,000 in your spare change jar, a beautiful property with lush gardens, ponds, and an old English cottage/Storybook design just went on the market in Canaan, Connecticut. It went up 12 days ago on Zillow, and it's listed by Stephen M Drezen of William Pitt/Sotheby's Int'l. The house is 80 years old, it was built in 1942, and it oozes charm and beauty.

I have such an appreciation for properties like this, where you can tell that generations have put in decades of work beautifying the property. The name of it is Laughing Willow Farm, and I love the grounds, the greenhouse hot tub, and the views. Take a peek inside and outside.
