The magnificent Glen Elsinore mansion is one of the largest and most intriguing antique mansions in Connecticut. Built in 1911, as a summer cottage, by Mrs Mary Vinton Clark of Boston MA, the Glen Elsinore is a resemblance of what one might see on the famous Cliff Walk in Newport RI. Glen Elsinore, along with it's rich history, is tucked away in the beautiful setting of rural Pomfret, and conveniently located 1:20 from Boston, 2:30 hrs from New York and 50 min from Providence RI. Although originally a private residence, the Glen Elsinore is permitted for commercial use, such as a bed and breakfast, and it's use is currently being amended for an assisted living type facility. Passing through the gateway to a circular drive around a lighted pond with a fountain, you will come upon this massive yet elegant structure yielding approx 30,000 sq ft. To the right of the foyer is the grand ballroom with 4 sets of french doors leading to the large terrace, a large bar with granite counters and a massive fireplace. Turn to the left and you will find a gorgeous formal dining room, sitting room and library. Further down, 2 powder rooms, 2 office rooms, a kitchen and recreation room. There is an elevator shaft (no elevator) that leads to all 4 floors. Upstairs, are 2 more floors with an abundance of master suites, and function rooms. A total of 7 full baths and 4 half baths. 15 fireplaces, main floor piped for propane. Don't miss this amazing opportunity to own a house from the gilded age!
