Quintessential Waterfront Colonial
A striking quintessential New England center-chimney antique colonial. This elegant C.1700s direct waterfront home is located on idyllic Hamburg Cove, a go-to haven for serious boaters on the East Coast. Moved to its current site from Griswold CT in 1995, the home retains its historic features such as 6 stone/brick fireplaces, wide board floors, wood paneling, old glass custom windows and original hardware but providing modern heating, central air, wiring and plumbing. The granite foundation was restored over a poured mortar basement. The main level of the residence features handsome formal living and dining room, a glorious book-lined library, all with WB fireplaces. A generous eat-in kitchen with a walk-in pantry overlooks the stone patio, terraces, the Cove, and private stone dock as well as the post/beam barn, garage with a workshop- all on 1.5 acres. The upper level provides a 2-room primary suite and 2 additional bedrooms and another full bath. A largely finished lower level is currently used as an office, but many potential uses abound. This property is situated in historic Hamburg Village with direct water access to the CT River and LI Sound. The property is convenient to rail, ferry and air transportation, dining, entertainment and shopping. This area boasts of its roots in American Impressionism art, its dedication to the environment, and its peaceful lifestyle - all approximately midway between NYC and Boston. Not to be missed!
