Seven Smoakes Farm, built by Captain Thaddeus King and nephew of a founder of the Town of Suffield, Joseph King, in whose home across town is the local museum, rests a beautifully restored 3,323 sf home set on 2.06 acres, with modern plumbing, electric, water treatment, newly painted and sealed interior and exterior, etc., along with beautiful tobacco shed barn that has 100+ string lights for occasional semi-outdoor events. Only 5 families have owned this home in its nearly 240 year history! In fact, Thaddeus is buried just a few miles up Hill Street. Above the two car garage is a separate, self-contained rental unit that has had the same tenant for over 6 years (who could be retained or not) who reliably pays rent, is completely self-sufficient and who keeps an eye on the property for the current owners who use the home occasionally to visit their children in area Boarding Schools. The gorgeous edifice includes 7 original fireplaces, including original King’s wood headers, original wood floors, massive exposed ceiling beams throughout. The kitchen and 2.5 baths have all been updated including radiant floor heat under all new tile. The kitchen includes redone cabinets with restored porcelain and brass handles, a built-in banquette and beautiful butcher block counters, all capped off with retro-cool, custom blue stove and refrigerator made by the exclusive and very expensive Big Chill. Inviting dining room with hardwood floor and French door to the new back patio. The second floor boasts four large bedrooms. The guest bedroom features a gorgeous brand-new full bathroom. Incredible master bedroom w/2 fireplaces. Walk-up attic. The outdoor space will knock your socks off – with a brand new patio, new stone curb along the driveway, new landscaping including Arborvitaes and a huge barn with slate roof, 3 horse stalls, power and a huge room with a wood floor- it’s the ultimate entertaining spot! This beautiful home features the period details you are looking for with all the modern amenities. If you are looking for a first or second home that is rich in history, has been fully updated, and is very livable despite its 1774 origins, look no further, whether a family whose child attends Suffield, one looking for a home that is easily drivable through New England, 1 hour to Boston or a short train ride to Manhattan, along with the convenience of an international airport just 15 minutes away, this could be your historical oasis.
