The Lt. Elisha Root House is the antique home you have been waiting for -- this historic 18th century home was disassembled and carefully rebuilt on it's current site with all modern mechanicals, 1500 sf high ceiling basement, foundation, septic, well, electric & plumbing.
Incredibly charming & immaculately maintained, it features many historical architectural details and includes 3 oversized Bedrooms, wide-board painted floors throughout, 4 Fireplaces, built-ins & the large walk-up Attic provides room for extra storage or expansion.
The Front Parlor, Buttery, Borning & Keeping Room w/cooking Fireplace and Beehive Oven are all converted for comfortable country living. The home is centered on a lovely 2+ acre rolling meadow surrounded by 6 acres of natural forest adjoining open space with hiking trails and a riding path. Very private. The large Barn w/loft is being used as a 2 car detached Garage and adds to the storybook setting, which includes stone walls, mature trees and a rushing stream and waterfall. 720' borders Aspetuck River.
Redding has the best of both worlds: tranquility and the historic charm of a New England small town combined with exceptional schools and easy access to restaurants, shopping, trains, medical and cultural services and only 60 miles to NYC. "Over the river and through the woods..." Redding ranks as one of the best small towns in CT and this very special home is a registered Historic Landmark and is a must see at this terrific price.
