    THE HISTORY
    In the countryside just west of Sharon, in the Northwest corner of Connecticut, the Colgate estate establishes a stately position on 50+ acres of meadow, gardens and mature woodland. Built from granite blocks quarried on the estate, work commenced in 1903 and was completed in 1906. The house was the dream of Romulus Riggs Colgate and his wife, Susan. Their dream became a reality through their architect J. William Cromwell, Jr..The Colgate’s resided in the house in great splendor until 1936. Then the house changed hands three times, until it was sold to the musician and record producer, Paul Leka and his family in 1977. It was Mr. Leka who was responsible for the collection of statues and sculptures to be found in and around the house along with its immaculate upkeep.

    Fashioned after Filston House, in the Kent
    countryside in England, which was the estate of his grandfather, the scion of the Colgate empire. Built in the classic revival style, four significant Corinthian columns dominate the south facing elevation of the house. The East and West wings of the house support balconies and covered porches for seasonal entertainment. Elaborate wrought iron doors with glass inserts, sport the coat of arms of the Colgate family.
