Description

Own a piece of history and step back in time where vintage charm meets today’s amenities and lifestyles! Welcome to the David Mallett Jr. home, built in 1760, before the birth of the US & Revolutionary War. Impressive, lovingly maintained, expanded & updated 4 BD, 2.5 BTH Colonial Farmhouse, situated on bucolic, serene level 1.51 acres, touts the prestigious title of being the only home in Trumbull to be recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, which offers tax advantages/deductions of up to $100k! Featured in many past historic home tours, this special home showcases 4 fireplaces, beehive ovens, exposed beams, gleaming H/W & “Queen’s Mast” original wide floorboards, arched doorways, exquisite handmade woodwork/doors, double stairwells & a walkup attic with a smokehouse! Scenic, park-like grounds are encircled by stone walls with 25′ of additional street frontage all around, mature plantings & landscaping, fruit trees, slate patio with builtin BarBQ, a 2 story 3 car garage/barn with walkup loft, fenced I/G pool & circular driveway – a tranquil, private setting for outdoor entertaining! Once a smaller home on a large 500-acre estate, this historic home has undergone multiple additions over the years, with some sections moved from other locations, creating wonderful flow and living space. A granite walkway transports you to a simpler time as you approach the large covered front porch, with scenic views of Tashua Knolls golf course. (Read more …)

The kitchen, aka “the Warming House”, was originally located in the church across the street and moved over by horses to be added on to this home!
