Overlooking Lake Waramaug in the Litchfield County town of Warren is a nearly 232-acre property owned by the same family for the last 70 years. Now up for sale for $16 million, its listing makes it the highest-priced Litchfield County property currently on the market.
Its price tag is $250,000 above the next highest listing in the area: the estate of "Happy Days" producers Thomas Miller and Robert Boyett in Salisbury, which is listed for $15.75 million. The price of the Warren property isn’t its only notable detail. According to information provided by William Pitt Sotheby’s International, the estate known as Lost Acre Farm was owned by Oliver Newberry Brooks, the founder of Brooks and Perkins, an industrial company that began in 1943 as a manufacturer of magnesium parts for the defense industry.
