Property Description

THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING IN FAIRFIELD. This house was the 2nd home burned by the British during the Revolutionary War, then rebuilt in 1779. It was also a tavern, with notable guests, and home to Capt Abraham Benson. It has been in that same family since the 1800s. You have waited a long time for this opportunity!! High ceilings. Grand rooms. Wide plank floors. Many built-ins. AMPLE closet space. New 200 amp electrical service. Natural gas to the house. There were 8 fireplaces, 7 are exposed with beautiful mantles. One is behind a wall. Four aren’t operational; they provide the boiler a flu. With some repair and/or gas conversion all 8 may be able to be made operational. Finishable, walk up attic. Grand foyer & stairs. Spacious rooms & halls. This home maintains most of the original flavor of the period. So much history...original glass, original doors, original flooring, nooks, crannies, fine detail. A history lovers dream! A "blank slate" with many opportunities to incorporate history with the comforts of 2019. The fully fenced yard is a lovely 0.44 acre with stone columned pergola with wisteria, rock garden, non-functionial outhouse and well. Stunning lilacs surround most of the fencing &lawn. There is a garage in back. Add on or work within the footprint to bring this Classic into the 21st century and beyond: the closets, enclosed porch, tool rooms provide added space for baths, 1st floor MBR,larger EIK, etc without expanding. Motivated seller seeks offers.NO FLOOD INS!
