CHESHIRE – Can you image living in a well-constructed authentic New England Cape Cod home that was built well before the American Revolution?
Well, this charming three bedroom home at 69 Wallingford Road with two full baths was built in 1750.
Back then, homes were not typically that large, but this cape has nearly 1,900 square feet of living space with large rooms set on nearly an acre of land with perennial gardens, flowering shrubs and trees.
Some of the original features include magnificent hardwood flooring on both floors, exposed beams, built-ins in many of the rooms and a three-season enclosed back porch for relaxing and appreciating the lovely gardens.
The exterior also has blue stone pathways, a deck and a fenced-in vegetable garden in addition to a detached two-story barn for storage.
The living room is 14 feet by 15 feet, the master bedroom is 12 feet by 16 feet. There’s also a family room and den on the main floor and an office /study upstairs. George Washington didn’t have central air, but you will, virtually brand new throughout along with a new warm air furnace, water heater and a roof just four-years-old.
This piece of history is heated with natural gas, while water and sewer are both provided by the city. The center of town and Cheshire High School are just a short walk away.
The list price for the house is $499,900. The annual taxes are $5,756.
