HOLLYWOOD HISTORY IN THE LITCHFIELD HILLS Feel the history of Hollywood when you step up to this original 4-bd 2-ba antique in the rolling hills of Roxbury. Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller and other movie legends have spent time here, sipping on hard cider brewed by early owner Percy Beardsley. Most recent owner is screenwriter David Shaber, famous for classic films The Warriors and The Hunt for Red October, the latter of which was written right on these grounds. Wander out back into the little red barn which was Shaber's writing studio, with authentic barnwood interior, cozy reading loft and working stone fireplace. You’ll feel plenty of peace and inspiration as you hike 7.5 usable acres of the property, occupying both sides of Good Hill Road to allow for total control over your privacy. (Plots deeded separately.) Read all of your favorite books as you cozy up to three unique fireplaces in the main house. Take note of authentic 19th Century details like the summer kitchen with brick bread oven and hidden trap door leading to the original well. (New well dug up the hill in recent times!) And don’t miss the one-of-a-kind, decorative wrought iron fence out front, originally surrounding the Roxbury town monument on Church Street before being brought to its final home here in front of 222 Good Hill Road. Don’t miss this opportunity to get tranquility and charm steeped in Hollywood history at a TLC price!
