Description

Once in a lifetime opportunity to own the magnificent George Hubbard house circa 1637, the oldest house in Wethersfield! It is historically & architecturally significant & an important part of Wethersfield's founding history! This unrivaled historic gem has been featured on HGTV's Restore America & in the New York Times. Having been completely & thoughtfully restored from the ground up, sparing no expense it has the perfect marriage of 17th century craftsmanship & detailing with 21st century conveniences & amenities. The original house was a single 18x22 room featuring magnificent beams, detailing & a 10' fireplace w/ open hearth! The impressive family room was added along with a new kitchen creating an open floorplan & sunlit living space. High end kitchen appliances & Brazilian soap stone counters seamlessly compliment the period look!

Next, they purchased a 17th century home from Ipswich, MA; The Perkins House. Skilled craftsman relocated and added the structure to the original home. It is now the first floor master bedroom suite, 3rd bedroom, master bathroom and a library on the third level. The final addition was the family room that was once again thoughtfully designed using materials from the original house. There is simply not enough space to describe all this home has to offer.
