Let me take you on a tour of a home that's on the market on Shortwoods Road in New Fairfield, which is only about five minutes from where I live. Portions of the road are smack dab in the middle of the Pootatuck Forest Preserve. So we're talking woodsy like you read about.

I've never seen this magnificent home before because it's on a mountaintop in the Pootatuck Forest. Shortwoods Road begins off Route 39 in New Fairfield and eventually takes you to the Squantz Pond State Park entrance. I snapped this photo on Shortwoods looking down at Squantz Pond.
