Steeped in history, this center chimney colonial has only been home to 3 families in 245 years~could your family be the fourth? With 165 feet of Connecticut River frontage in historic Higganum Landing, this is a very special place to call home. Restored with the amenities one desires while retaining the original features and charm of yesteryear, this river front property is a treasure. The first floor features a living room with gas log fireplace, dining room with a large fireplace including a bee hive oven, the Borning Room, which serves as a library/office, and the recently remodeled kitchen with gas stove and center island. The half bath and laundry room are conveniently located on the first floor. One of two staircases rises from the foyer to two front bedrooms with beautiful views of the river while the rear staircase gives access to the office and the third bedroom. There is a walkup attic that one could convert to living space. The property is spectacular, not just because of the river access and views, but beautiful gardens, perennial and vegetable, the expansive front yard, a stone patio located off the three season sunroom, detached garage, 2-seat privy and garden shed.
