Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan hired an architect to design their dream home in the Connecticut countryside 20 years ago, and it was featured in Architectural Digest soon after it was built.
“They’re hearth-and-home types,” interior designer Marc Charbonnet told AD.
Now they’re selling it and the 72 acres it sits on, so let’s take a look!

Tracy Pollan & Michael J. Fox’s House in Connecticut
The listing says:
Gorgeous Views from this classic shingle and stone home with huge screened porch set on over 72 acres with a pond, pond house, guest apartment, pool, portico, mature plantings and gardens. Horse Barn and Paddocks with pasture in quiet and private setting.
Sharon is a lovely rural Litchfield County community that typifies an 18th-century New England village.
They hired architect Charles Myer to design the house for them.
An open walkway runs around the second floor with views of the Great Room. The Great Room was Fox’s “first request” when they met with their architect.
Fox has written a couple of books about his life,
called Lucky Man and Always Looking Up (Amazon affiliate links):

an absolutely gorgeous home…..does not look stuffy, or “Hollywood”….looks warm, inviting, simply beautiful, inside and out !!!!! I normally don’t like homes from the rich and famous, but, this is perfect !

A true timeless beauty. Thanks for sharing!

Love it and love them!
The stone fireplace is lovely, but it’s cut off from the open stairs above it. It distracts from the fireplace.
Beautiful! Interesting that they changed very little over the time they’ve been there – mostly same furniture and upholstery, which shows they’re not into decorating fads. That’s refreshing. I know nothing about comparable real estate prices, but the price seems pretty low to me, considering, especially with 72 acres! Not that it’s in my price range, ha ha. I always wonder why people decide to sell when it’s been a family home that they had custom designed and built.

Hi Julia, this is such a beautiful home, love the garden, it would be difficult to let it go. Thank you for sharing beauty. Till next time, have a lovely weekend. Regards Esther from Sydney. PS a new British show has started here called The Durrells filmed in Corfu around the 30s, single mum 3 teenagers and a run down cottage…great show.

This looks like a true family home. The spaces might be large but somehow they’ve managed to make them cosy and inviting.
I’ve always loved Doc Hollywood too!
