About This 1767 Saltbox In Newtown Connecticut
An evocative and emotional New England country residence, expressing both a reverence for the past and a respect for modernity. This expanded 18th century saltbox, effortlessly bathed in sunlight and romanticism, is ready for the avid maximalist or minimalist alike. Classic elements abound: extensive rose and perennial beds, a large antique barn ripe for any and all imaginative uses, stone walls and patios, wavy glass windows.
A spectacularly private and spacious master wing addition repurposed from a 19th century structure reverberates with airiness and life, and three additional cozy bedrooms continue to narrate the storybook-like setting. Down a light-filled hallway, the separate kitchen wing features a high end range and a massive central butcher block island all leading seamlessly to one of multiple stone patios or the magnificent elongated dining room/sunroom where you can finally put that long farmhouse table you’ve been dreaming of.
Spy on hummingbirds from the back walkway, or tuck away to the secluded side-yard to tend to your ideal vegetable garden (or dream up your potential in-ground pool plans!). Modern conveniences include: Central Air, programmable Ecobee thermostats (2020), septic fields brand new (2020), Exterior generator hook-up outlet w/ transfer switch. 90 Minutes to Manhattan, 20 minutes to Westport and the shoreline, easy drives to numerous idyllic hikes, farms, and nature preserves. This is truly a rare find for the discerning buyer.
