Driving Directions

Reputed to have once been a roadside tavern, welcome to a part of Newtown's history - this Grand Historical Federal Style Colonial built in 1805 offers the best of the old and the new with many updates and additions done tastefully while still retaining the home's original charm. Rustic rafters and timbers, chestnut floors, paneled walls, built-in bookcases, wide-board doors, stone hearths on 3 working fireplaces, beehive oven, "preacher" cupboards and hand-blown glass window panes are just some of the preserved features. Sited on 2.31 acres in a park-like setting with a garden/raised beds, invisible fence, manicured lawn, stone walls, flagstone patio, fenced-in yard and a custom-built gazebo that's just breathtaking! Add to that the two old maple trees on either side of the home were commonly referred to as “bride and groom trees” and you have a very special home or a romantic weekend getaway. Step into your foyer with wide chestnut floorboards and look through the entryway towards the renovated kitchen. Rafters and beams throughout the home, living room with built-ins and hearth fireplace, many options for office space abound (9 rooms on the main level) with a private office and library, open kitchen with granite countertops, copper sinks, stainless steel appliances and a 5-burner gas cooktop. Who wouldn't want to cook in this kitchen and let's not forget the under-mount wine fridge.Cozy dining room with a wood fireplace was also part of the original home. (cont.)
