This stunning antique home is for sale! Known as The Bloss house built in 1740 by Thomas Leavenworth, housed young Yale law students, among those was one John C. Calhoun before he made his way to the White House as VP in 1824 under John Q. Adams. Residential and Commercial zoning, this property has amazing opportunities. The home and barn were literally caving in but have been completely restored. Close to $1M in restoration costs to save this stunning property. The almost 300 year old home offers much of its original charm. The kitchen alone boasts a 12 foot long stone that serves as a hearth for the original brick beehive oven and a large Colonial pantry is adjacent to the kitchen with plenty of space to expand your culinary dreams. The original wide planked chestnut wood floors lead you into the authentic Keeping Room that is filled with sunshine from the porch windows. A family room and an office/den resides from there as does a full updated bath. Leading down the grand hallway into the foyer you’ll find the Parlor room with its well preserved hand carved mantle framing one of the four fireplaces on the first floor. The large staircase leads you up to the primary bedroom with a sitting area outside, right now being used as a music room. 3 more bedrooms are on the second floor as well as 2 other sitting rooms, a shared full bath, and closets in every room. Storage is not an issue in this house. With an abundance of closets and 2 full attics there is plenty of room!
