Three’s company, this 28-acre restored farm in Washington, Connecticut, just listed for $9.5 million.

Owner Kevin Comer has put the 250-year-old Hedgelawn Farm on the market after completing a long-term renovation of the three homes on the property, Hartford Gazette report.

Comer led the redesign of all three houses on the farm — his firm City and Field Design specializes in the adaptive reuse of architecturally and historically significant properties, according to its website. Comer bought the farm at 191 Roxbury Road in 2007 for $2.8 million, according to Compass. In 2013, he began renovating barns, guest houses and cottages.

Ten years later, the renovation was complete and Compass’s Rick Distel and Susan Vanech listed it.

“It overlooks the entire river valley, for miles in either direction,” Comer told the publication. “This is one of the oldest farms in Litchfield County. Very few owners. This is a legendary property.”

There are a total of nine buildings on the property, but only three are residential. Comer renovated a 4,500-square-foot three-bedroom barn home, a 2,800-square-foot two-bedroom guest house, and a one-bedroom cottage with all modern designs. The former tobacco farm also has a swimming pool, six-car garage, three-stall stables and a three-seater outhouse.

Distel told the publication it was rare for properties in this price range to have updated modern interiors. “What we’ve seen from other buyers is they’re willing to pay for certainty and not have to deal with materials and contractors. So I think that’s like a big gold star for the property.”
