WALLINGFORD — You’ll think you’re on a historic house tour ... in fact, you are! Because this estate at 200 Cheshire Road built circa 1730 is a quintessential New England property on more than 8 acres and filled with history. They don’t build ‘em like this anymore!
The property includes the main residence, an oversized 3-car garage with workshop, and one of the oldest barns in the country. Everything is fully restored just waiting for the buyer who wants to live and preserve history while enjoying the nearly 3,000 square feet of living space and all that beautiful land. You’ll appreciate the wide oak and poplar floors restored by hand, wood-paneled walls, custom built-ins throughout, exposed beams, and antique windows.
The first floor offers both a front and back foyer, library, large living room with fireplace dining room with beehive oven, a sunroom leading to a private stone patio, and a completely updated kitchen with breakfast bar, Corian and granite counters, wall oven, cooktop, beams, and wide floorboards. The second floor has 2 large bedrooms 2 full baths, and an office which could also be converted to another bedroom. There’s a third floor as well with an art studio/bedroom, and an attic that is floored and perfect for large storage space.
The exterior is positively massive with lush country gardens and a covered porch for appreciating it all year ‘round. 300 years ago homes were built to last, and this beautiful estate with oversized rooms and so much to offer has lasted so very well.
Tomorrow, Sunday, June 4, from 1-3 p.m. Realtor Inez St. James of Coldwell Banker Realty will be on property to give you a historic house tour you’ll never forget!
