For Sale: 285 Redding Road, Redding
Hawk's Nest - extraordinary country retreat on 7.31 acres with gated private entry including the ca 1800 historic converted barn with modern glass and stone addition; heated gunite pool; gambrel-roofed barn with 4 stalls, hayloft, garage/workshop and cupola; greenhouse; root cellar; detached 3 bay garage; plus over 7 acres of gently sloping meadows/woodlands, bounded by split-rail fencing, stone walls, and scenic pond.
Owned by Frank M. Hawks in the 1930s, one of America's leading aviation pioneers, this storied home was originally a barn that was moved back from the main road, and parts of the interior were constructed of beams and brick salvaged from Mark Twain's nearby "Stormfield" after it burned.
Architect Roger Pitt Witcomb artfully designed the modern conversion of the original barn incorporating the spectacular "garden room" addition with two-story wall of windows and a glorious waterfall with native stone backdrop. A circular staircase climbs to the 2nd-floor family room with large stone fireplace and curved balcony overlook. This truly one-of-a-kind residence offers stunning brick and wide board floors; timbered ceilings/exposed beams; 3 stone fireplaces + wood burning stove; gracious dining room with adjoining wine bar/cellar; and 3 finished levels. Total 3,726sf, 3 bedrooms and 3/1 baths including primary suite with full bath, dressing room and sleeping porch, plus 2 more ensuite bedrooms on the 3rd floor with vaulted ceilings, beams and one with sleeping loft.
Glorious private retreat yet convenient West Redding location, only 63 miles to Midtown.
