It’s not quite into the woods.
Located in Connecticut, this home has a storied history.
For nearly 40 years, the late “Gypsy,” “Follies,” and ‘”A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” composer Stephen Sondheim called this Roxbury, Connecticut residence his home. And now, some two years after his death, it’s looking for a new owner.
“This property is so special in that this is a circa 1792 period home set along a whisper quiet country lane,” Graham Klemm, who holds the listing with fellow Klemm Real Estate agent Carolyn Klemm, told The Post.
The more than 9-acre property, which hadn’t been listed on the open market in more than 39 years, is seeking $3.25 million. Curbed first reported news of the offering.
The Broadway icon — who passed away in November 2021 at the age 91 — Graham added, “could have lived anywhere in the world and he chose to live in Roxbury … in this house. I think that is not only telling of how special this area is, but how wonderful this home is.”
The three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom spread boasts a wood-shingled roof, a cathedral-ceilinged living room with a stone fireplace, a separate dining room and a paneled library.
All the bedrooms have an ensuite bath, with the primary located on the main floor and the two others upstairs.
Also on the grounds are a two-car detached garage, a pool and a one-bedroom pool house.
In all, there are just under 3,700 square feet of living space.
The compound, though sprawling, is seeking much less than the eight Tony Award-winning lyricist’s Turtle Bay townhouse did when it hit the market over the summer for $7 million.
Sondheim called that property, at 246 E. 49th St., the house that “Gypsy” built, having purchased it in 1960 on the heels of his success writing for the beloved Broadway show.
In addition to its 19-foot width, that domicile boasts having seven bedrooms, crown moldings, multiple woodburning fireplaces and stained glass throughout, The Post reported when it listed in July. StreetEasy shows it entered contract a month later, but has yet to close.
