Some people dream of winning a prestigious award, but the home on 148 Taunton Hill Road in Newtown already has two under its belt.
Sitting on more than 8 acres of land, the main focal point of the Newtown home is the resort-style pool below the house. The massive pool has lounge chairs and a lily pond, but one thing is missing: chemicals. The “non-chemical” pool acts as a natural body of water and is home to live tadpoles, according to listing agent Libby McKinney-Tritschler. In 2015, the “all-natural” pool won first prize in landscape design by CT Cottages and Gardens.
