A special place deserves a special buyer! The purchaser of this exceptional residence will certainly be one who appreciates the quality and attention to detail that only the "romantic revival" period of the American"high colonial" era offers; that is, charm, grace and, yes, romance! Naturally the house has the requisite amenities that any house in this price range would offer...CA, working fireplaces, copious amounts of storage space and so on...but it has so much more. One would be hard-pressed to replicate it or, indeed, find the talent to accomplish it. In every room, around each corner, is the mark of a master craftsman hard at work at a labor of love.In addition to wide plank flooring of oak and southern Carolina pine in each and every room, there are heavy duty moldings and paneling, especially designed for this house alone and lovingly carved by hand. Many of the lights were done by a local artisan, Richard Scolfield of Chester, a master in the recreation of early American lighting. The front foyer, the "parlor", the dining room, and even the spacious MBR suite are formal, but then there's the wonderfully spacious kitchen and the one of a kind gathering room with its hand hewn beams, enormous fireplace and small-paned true divided light windows beautifully set under low hanging eves...a delightful sunroom for year round views of the garden and the natural aspects of this over two acre, lightly wooded, delightfully secluded spot which just happens to be in the center, of a multitude of simple pleasures. Fish in the nearby reservoir, hike through the paths of Tyler's Mill, walk or bike to a local farm market or Gouveia's Vineyard, or make the short drive into town for a visit to the library, the "Y", schools, public and private, or dinner and entertainment. Nothing is too far, but nothing is close enough to intrude. In addition, there is in-law potential with nearly no adaptation! Minutes, literally from I-91 North and South. Right between Hartford and New Haven. A special place deserves a special buyer! Perhaps it's you!
