Are you fascinated by historic homes and the fact that when people walk into them, they don't automatically know where the bathroom is? From her “dawn of America” history, to the dairy farm families who helped settle here, the 1770 Solomon and Mary Root Minor farmhouse has a rich history and is one of the oldest houses in the Minortown section of town. The wide board floors, wrought head nails, hand hewn beams, and original King’s wood paneling above the 8’ wide kitchen fireplace(and throughout the house),evoke a taste of colonial America. You won't be living like a Pilgrim in this home! New furnace, hot water heater, updated 3 full bathrooms, kitchen cabinets, countertops, dishwasher, c.1880 Boston Stove Foundry oven/range, lighting, Lopi Cape Cod woodstove, added insulation to attic areas, roof, well to code, granite walkways, terraces, fire pit, fenced vegetable garden area, Non GMO herb garden, organic fruit trees, perennials and more. Abundant closets throughout for storage. When you’re lucky enough to live in a 250 year-old home, you aren’t her owner – you’re her steward. Located in Connecticut's Antique Capital. It's convenient to I84, Rt8 and about 75 miles north of NYC.
