Historic Colonial is Set in the Hamlet of Hadlyme
Located in the rolling hills and never ending stone walls in the hamlet of Hadlyme, this c.1732 home on 9 acres is only a few minutes from the Hadlyme Chester Ferry. A long driveway leads up to the historic home with the blue front door. Stone walls frame a parking area next to the two car garage and a path leads to a spacious stone patio and the rear entrance with a mudroom. A Dutch door opens to the wood beamed eat-in kitchen with a black granite center counter with a five burner Bosch gas stove. Opposite, the matching granite counter has a farm sink below windows framed by cabinets. A glass paned door leads out to the long ceilinged porch overlooking the salt water swimming pool and the spectacular boxwood gardens with multiple paths converging at a rondel with a fountain. Beyond the kitchen, a family room with floor to ceiling built-ins, has a large brick fireplace. Adjacent, the elegant paneled formal dining room has a fireplace, as does the wood beamed 18x24 ft. living room which opens to the bright sunroom that has a wall of built-ins and a banquette, all kept cozy and warm in winter by radiant heat. The primary 20'x14'11" bedroom suite on the second level has an office and yes, a fireplace. Its marble bath with a large glass shower room enjoys radiant heat. In addition to the many entertaining areas, a "woodland folly", without electricity, is perfect for candle lit dinner parties and reinforces the remarkable uniqueness of this beautiful property.
