Do you dream of stepping back in time but crave modern conveniences? This historic 1756 New England home nestled in on 4 acres delivers the best of both worlds. Enter & bask in sunlight through the newer Marvin windows. Step into the first floor “keeping room” & you may think you’ve stepped into Colonial times: Its open-hearth FP & bee-shaped brick oven welcome you as it did visitors of the past. Today, it’s a family room, where cool nights are warmed by a woodstove in the open hearth. A BR w/full bath and FP & office with built-ins add to the comfort of the first floor. Upstairs, a bath w/a clawfoot tub offers relaxation without compromising the historic aesthetic. Old-world charm meets modern-day function in the tastefully updated kitchen. With many features built or designed by CT artisans, it boasts an outdoor patio, wide-plank wood floors, custom Colonial era-looking FP, granite counters, expansive pantry & breakfast bar made from a salvaged birch slab from Choate Rosemary Hall. Cooks will love the Thermador gas convection oven, a new stainless steel Electrolux dishwasher & a refrigerator/freezer. Other modern amenities include Central air, propane furnace & cedar closet. The bucolic 4-acre setting includes six outbuildings. The Boulder Knoll Montessori School currently resides in the carriage house & can continue to run and generate income for a new homeowner, or the space may possibly be converted into a charming Air BnB space, in-law apartment, or home office. 2.09 acres adjacent lot (which should be subdividable) is included in sale. End of June closing date.
