Fredrik Eklund buys Connecticut getaway with plenty of room for high kicks

I’m excited to share with you all that Derek and I have bought a house in Connecticut. ? Here she is! We are so happy!!!! We haven’t been able to sleep here in London in excitement. She’s really big, she’s a classic Georgian dream house with long vistas over the Litchfield hills and 8 acres of land, our land! She comes with a movie-cinema, a wine-cellar, a pond full of fish, an infinity pool and massive woods for the dogs to run in! ? Ever since I was a little boy I’ve dreamed of this – and just 90 minutes from Manhattan. I actually got tears in my eyes the first time I entered the master suite… I can’t really describe it. Anyway, it means so much to me as I have worked so hard, and I feel thankful and happy today for this dream come true. Tonight we will celebrate with our families. #NewBeginning ?

The home sits on more than eight acres of land that overlook the Litchfield hills, and according to the listing, it has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, an infinity pool, terraces, a two-car heated garage, a chef’s kitchen, a master bedroom with a “step down dressing area” and two huge walk-in closets.

The listing does not have a price, but the home was featured in a recent issue of “Cottages & Gardens” magazine, where the asking price was given as $3.5 million.
