Renée Zellweger Selling Country House in Connecticut

Actress Renée Zellweger spent years fixing up the 1770 farmhouse in Pomfret, Connecticut, that she bought in 2004, but now she’s ready to sell. Her listing agent Jonathan Radford says that Renée’s work and travel schedule keeps her from spending as much time there as she’d like.

The listing says the property is “bordered by the picturesque Quinebaug River and surrounded by lush gardens, fields, and woods in a rustic corner of Connecticut.”

Zellweger calls Pomfret an old-fashioned Americansmall town: “The seasons and landscape are breathtaking, the quality of life and festive holiday celebrations are of bygone days, and you’ll make more true friends in Pomfret within weeks than you would during a lifetime in most other places.”
