It's truly a sprawling western Massachusetts compound on over 60 acres of land, with 120,000 square feet of space and eight structures in total. Owned by the late Yankee Candle founder Michael James Kittredge II, this $23 million compound is in the town of Leverett an hour north of Hartford, Connecticut.

It's listed by Johnny Hatem, Jr of Douglas Elliman Real Estate and I've attached a gallery of photos below.

This estate is a playground like no other, that's for sure. Are you ready for the list of activities boasted by this private compound flanked by two gated entrances?

An indoor water park, tennis, and basketball courts, a two-story arcade, bowling alley, clubhouse, pool cabana, spa, two car barns, and two guest houses are all there on park-like grounds with fountains, pergolas, ponds, and waterfalls.

You need a golf cart to get around, or you can also amble around on the many pathways.  And by the way, the spa is 55,000 square feet, and the indoor water park is inspired by the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Plus, there's also a 4,000 square-foot stage where bands such as Hall & Oates, The Doobie Brothers, plus KC and The Sunshine Band have played, and don't forget the nine-hole golf course.

The main house itself is smaller than the spa at 25,000 square feet and has two kitchens.  In total, there are 16 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms. Hosting guests, colleagues, and philanthropic events is a breeze in this sanctuary, all of which were big parts of Michael's lifestyle.  Michael also has two huge garages filled with stunning cars from his collection.  We're talking bigger than many showrooms.

Mick, Michael's son, who founded Kringle Candle Company with his father in 2009, is selling the home after his father passed away just before the pandemic.  Okay, let's take a tour now.

From Buttons to Bunkers: The Cold War Charm of The I95 Tower in Brookfield

My name is Lou Milano, the co-host of the I-95 Morning Show with Ethan, Lou & Large Dave. I started working here in September of 1999 which means I just celebrated my 23rd year with the company and I let it pass by without even realizing it.

In my time with the station I've only been to the broadcast tower site a handful of times. My last trip up there made me think that everyone should get to see this. This is my virtual tour of the tower site from the ground. As you read this I want you to keep in mind that it takes all of these components to create 50,000 watts, one of the strongest signals in Connecticut.
