By Rona Mann

WALLINGFORD – It’s like having your own private compound. This spacious, 2,768 square feet, sprawling 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath property is stylish, unique, and has more than two acres.

On the first level of 1458 Durham Road there’s a large country style kitchen with skylights, propane fuel for cooking, and plenty of appliances. Beautiful hardwoods are found throughout the first level along with a dining area, family room with a secret room behind the bookcase, hand-painted wall mural and simulated stone stairway.

The kitchen/dining area leads to a rear two-tiered deck that is great for entertaining.

Both generous bedrooms are on the second level, but take a look at the walk-in freezer on the lower level so you really are all set for stock piling or entertaining.

Love to garden? You will certainly appreciate the grounds with a separate garden area, fruit trees, and greenhouse. You’ll never worry about storage space as this property boasts 2 sheds, a 50 foot by  70 foot building for car, boat, or equipment, and a heated workshop area.

This seven-room Colonial comes with a barn, 36 feet by 66 feet, with its own water supply for animals or merely extra storage and a stable.

 The home, built in 1985, is heated by oil and propane and centrally air conditioned. It has a two-car attached garage a private well and septic tank.
