An unusual find! This property weaves together eras and elements. An interplay of then & now, home & land, rich building detail & simple natural beauty. Handsomely sited, the structures and fields are framed with stone walls. 19+ acres abut Cockaponset State Forest. Renowned Early American antiques dealer, Lewis Scranton, sought out this property, one of the oldest in Killingworth. With restoration specialist Jeff Klausen, a labor of love brought this 18th century home back to life. Honoring the detail and materials of the period, the ¾ cape was carefully refurbished, leaving much of the original interior woodwork, the chestnut paneling, and the 4 fireplaces intact. Living room/keeping room, den/old kitchen, dining room with corner cupboard. A built-in bar room a nod to the home’s history as a tavern. An addition of first floor master suite, baths, and kitchen completed the residence. New plumbing, electrical, and septic, and heating/ac system. A covered porch and stone patio overlook the grounds, providing a peaceful interface between home and property. The barn was relocated and rebuilt. The one room schoolhouse restored as studio/shop. New 3 bay carriage house. Part of the acreage cleared, the stone walls repaired. Landscape includes plentiful plantings and specimen trees -including weeping hemlock and umbrella pine. Space for gardens and animals, games and gatherings. A deed restriction reflects the intention to keep this special parcel undivided.
