Beautifully restored historic home set on 5 acres includes charming guest cottage & 3 car carriage house with loft apartment. Overlooking the Connecticut River & Haddam Meadows State Park, enjoy breathtaking views for all seasons. The main house was originally built in 1765 of post & beam construction & was featured on HGTV’s “If Walls Could Talk”. In 1932, famous novelist Katharine Brush purchased the property & moved the house 400 feet back off the road & added 2 wings. The residence lives like a sophisticated home of the 1930’s with stunning lines & generous rooms. That same year, she built the famous “Laurel Cottage”, originally a writers retreat, it sits on a promontory above the state park & river. Located down a pine needle path, the 1 bedroom, 794sf pristine cottage was completely restored & added on to recently, complete with a full bath & kitchen. In 2010, the main house underwent an extensive renovation. The 5 bedroom, 2658sf colonial is completely updated with the finest finishes & modern mechanicals. The Carriage House was built in 2015 & features a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home on the upper level equipped with a full kitchen, living room & 904 sf of living space. The lower level features a finished/heated 3 car garage, for a total of 5 garages. This unique property offers many possibilities, including significant income potential. Located near the world-renowned Goodspeed Opera House, this peaceful, private spot is an irresistible compound in a quaint locale.
