Rarely found Early Italianate/Italian Villa with Greek Revival influence built Circa 1860. Situated on an idyllic 1/2 acre lot in the KENSINGTON section of Berlin. The level backyard is peppered with mature, indigenous New England trees providing a scenic background and privacy border. With the same ownership since it was built 160 years ago, the property is known as the “Parsonage” to the Kensington Congregational Church. Deemed historically significant by the Connecticut Historical Commission, this home still retains some original features including the 3 bay facade, left entry portico with Tuscan columns, interior staircase with circular base and delicate frieze-band windows. As you enter inside imagine the possibilities to either restore to original grandeur or create a modern, trendy interior. Either can be done! Large, spacious rooms ideal for entertaining featuring a bright and sunny working kitchen, formal dining room with gleaming wood floors & front to back living room/family room combination. A modern addition on the home provides a first floor master bedroom or office ideal for those who are working at home. Ascend up the staircase and find 3 generous sized bedrooms drenched with plenty of sunshine! Need more space? check out the finished lower level with adjacent laundry room. This area could serve as a media room or fitness/yoga area. Detached 2-car garage can add additional storage. This is your opportunity to become the SECOND steward of this romantic home!
