Tony award-winning Broadway director Jack O’Brien is listing his New Milford, Conn., estate for $2.8 million.

O’Brien, a former Old Globe Theatre artistic director, has credits including directing “The Full Monty” and “Hairspray.”

Known as Imaginary Farms, his 19.95-acre property at 51 Bear Hill Road — designed by architect Peter Wooster — is as theatrical as one might expect.

The three-bedroom, five-bathroom Colonial-style main house, built in 2005, opens with a foyer featuring an “ancient Chinese pavement stone floor” and a David Rockwell-designed mechanical glass chandelier “hovering over the foyer,” according to the listing.

Next is a wood-paneled great room with floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases and a large fireplace surrounded by glass. There’s also an open kitchen and dining room with a fireplace, and a staircase that leads to the second-floor master suite.

The master suite features a Rockwell-designed bed that rotates 180 degrees “to take advantage of the changing seasons.” Think of it as your own theater in the round!

There’s also a screened-in porch, a terrace in the back of the house and stunning grounds featuring a freshwater pond, a pool, a Japanese garden and a meadow with crab apple trees.

You’ll also find an antique barn with a “partially finished” two-floor apartment, including an open kitchen/living room with a fireplace.

The listing brokers are Ira Goldspiel and Steve Pener, of William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty.
