This Old House…
has been loved for almost 300 years. Originally built in 1730 by one of Greenwich’s founding families, the Mead Family, added onto in 1769 and 1796, and lovingly renovated in 2008, this historic treasure is now seeking a new family, one that will love its wide plank hemlock floors, original carved moldings, multiple fireplaces, landmark trees, mature perennial gardens and antique stone walls.
This old house boasts 9 fireplaces, including a walk-in fireplace and hearth with wrought iron kettle hardware in the basement where 18thcentury meals were cooked. The first floor includes a living room, library, sitting (family) room, dining room, 2 half baths and kitchen. There are three bedrooms, a sitting room and 2 full baths on the second floor and a fourth bedroom on the third floor, along with several storage rooms. All the bedrooms have fireplaces. The original staircases and moldings have been preserved throughout.
What is new about the house? First, there is a modern, light-filled kitchen with top of the line appliances, a laundry with Electrolux stacker units, and lots of space for a large farm table, a cozy sitting area and, of course, a fireplace. All the bathrooms have been updated with marble floors, and new Waterworks fixtures.
The outbuildings on the property are charming and add enormous value. A two bedroom, 2 bath 1500 sq. ft. cottage has been gutted and rebuilt and can be a source of rental income or provide additional space for in-laws or visiting family. A two-story carriage house/barn, built around 1800, provides garage space for four cars and has a large second floor that would be a perfect space for parties. There is an approval for a pool.
The house is set on 2.67 beautifully landscaped mid-country acres, yet is only a short ride to central Greenwich. If you love the idea of living in an historic home, this one can be yours to cherish as is, or update further as you wish.
