Listed for $2.35 million, the property known as Winwood was designed by “noted Litchfield residents Sonia P. Seherr-Thoss and her husband, Hans C. Seherr-Thoss,” according to the listing. Sonia Seherr-Thoss was the granddaughter of Henry Phipps, the Litchfield Historical Society notes, a partner of American steel industrialist Andrew Carnegie. She was also known for her book on Islamic Architecture published by the Smithsonian Institute Press in 1968.

The Seherr-Thosses purchased the property in Litchfield in 1948, according to the Litchfield Historical Society, where they established Butternut Brook Jerseys in 1956, a dairy farm the couple ran until 1966. The longtime Litchfield County residents and philanthropists say the farm’s hayfields are still “maintained without pesticides and farmed by local dairy farmers who create artisanal chocolates,” according to the listing agent for the home, Ira Goldspiel.

Designed to bring the outside in, the home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and large windows and skylights throughout, the listing notes, as well as a screened-in porch and south-facing deck. In addition to the living space, there’s a one-car heated garage that attaches to a mudroom and another lower-level garage with room for three more cars.

The property sits next to conservation land and includes trails to Butternut Brook.
