About This 1740 Pre-Revolutionary Saltbox In Marlborough Connecticut
Welcome to the Captain Ebenezer Fiske House, a Pre-Revolutionary Saltbox originally built in Southington circa 1740 and re-sited in Marlborough in 1979-80. This home is a must see located at the end of Parker Road on 6 bucolic acres surrounded by stone walls, state forest, peace, quiet and privacy.
Original wide board floors, exposed beams, 5 fireplaces, beehive ovens, staircases, raised paneling and many other features were meticulously dismantled and reconstructed to create, as noted in the archives of Oldhouses.com and quoted by Bob Vila, 1 out of 15 “Saltboxes that are still worth their salt”.
The country kitchen was remodeled by Ed Sunderland, a renowned builder of period homes, and features his signature “ship slanted” cabinets. The detached 2 car garage is constructed from structural members original to the house back in the day when it operated as a tavern. Live in and enjoy a piece of history with this very special antique charmer that is located less than 2 miles from Rt. 2 and 15 miles from Hartford, but feels timeless.
