Rare Opportunity to own and restore the oldest home in Darien and one of the oldest remaining commercial structures in Connecticut! On the National Register, the Pond-Weed Home has marked the entrance to Darien since circa 1696, serving as a Tavern and Blacksmith Shop and a witness to history. Incredibly unique, the First-Period home has remained almost untouched over the last 20 years and contains much of the original components. Historic fabric retained include chamfered beams, feather-edged paneling, hobnail door, raised end wall fireplaces, early granite firebox in the keeping room with bake oven in the back, a walk-up attic and original root cellar. Three+ bedrooms, one full and one half bath and central air, public water and public sewer. Ringed with English Gardens. Multiple options exist for the buyer who is interested in restoration through the Town of Darien & Preservation Connecticut including subdividing the property, mixed-use and the addition of a secondary structure for income property.
