Description: Step into the serenity of the past with all the modern conveniences in a classic Connecticut center chimney Colonial Cape on .67 acres in Woodbury, near restaurants, shopping and I-84. Tax records date it to 1798 but earlier families traced it to the mid-eighteenth century. Built by an early proprietor of Old Woodbury and occupied for generations by the Atwood and Burton families, the house overlooks open fields bordering the Nonnewaug River and includes the original timber-framed dwelling house and an additional 1000 sq ft barn with a huge workshop and finished upstairs studio with recently upgraded heating, cooling, and new windows with bucolic views. The original house was professionally restored with period window glass, custom colonial-style kitchen cabinets and walls of raised paneling surrounding three original granite fireplaces with granite hearths. Massive wide oak floorboards with rose-head nails retained downstairs and wide board pine flooring was gently refinished upstairs in 2017. Period-style lighting fixtures illuminate surprisingly spacious interiors featuring ample storage space on both floors. Custom cabinets in both bathrooms and master bedroom offer even more storage space. New furnace, new central A/C, new oil tank. Both bathrooms have been upgraded yet blend seamlessly with the antique interiors. New screened porch is surrounded by custom fencing, arbors festooned with climbing roses and classic New England stone walls border the generous parking area.
