Our feature home of the month: Burrwood House is an iconic New England country retreat on over two acres in Greenfield Hill. Built in 1819 and lovingly renovated and restored by the current owners, this landmark home was the working farm of the prominent Fairfield Burr Family for four generations and well known as the Whitehead Estate through the 1990s. 

 Three bluestone terraces let you enjoy the peace and quiet of Burrwood’s lush acreage. Open up the French doors in the living room and entertain on the main terrace adorned with a wall fountain and stone walls. The kitchen terrace surrounded by boxwood was made for beginning your day in the sunshine and a third terrace is nestled in the garden by the summerhouse. 
 
Included in the Smithsonian Archives of American Gardens, Burrwood’s gardens drape the property in seasonal splendor. Specimen trees dot the landscape and serene rear gardens include Astrantia, a favorite of English cottages. Perennial beds reminiscent of the Cotswolds grace the back of the home where beautiful hyssop beds attract swallowtail butterflies and bees throughout the summer months.  

A Lord and Burnham greenhouse serves as the foundation for the reimagined summerhouse, an elegant entertaining venue for candlelit dinner parties in the garden. Additional restored outbuildings include the original cowshed and milking parlor that serves as a garage perfect for the classic car collector with a center dogtrot leading to raised bed vegetable gardens. Stately interiors have been exquisitely reimagined for modern living, reflecting the perfect coupling of historic charm and timeless elegance.
