The SpaceBoasting 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and enough room to comfortably accommodate 10 guests throughout 2,000 square feet of well appointed living space, this stately residence is perfect for large families or group of close friends looking to explore Connecticut’s rich history. The moment you first arrive, you’ll simply fall in love with the home's beautiful surroundings - the front of the house looks out onto Chelsea Parade, which was designated in the late 1800’s as a military parade ground, showcasing several small monuments devoted to those who have served this country. Norwich Free Academy and the Slater Art Museum are also right by the house, as well as Park Congregational Church, which has charming church bells that chime the hours and a delightful selection of hymns played on the bells at noon.
Inside, this home is even more impressive! You’ll love the spacious elegance throughout its impeccably furnished interior, especially in the large ballroom. For your entertainment, the billiards room has a small yet very enjoyable pool table and the library offers a sizable selection of page-turners, along with a lovely arched Victorian-era window. The front bedrooms, called the French and Chinese Chippendale rooms, receive an abundance of glorious natural sunlight, while the other 3 rooms – the Queen Anne, Hitchcock, and Canopy bedrooms – get a little less sun, making them great for sleeping in late on slow-paced vacation days.
Look forward to preparing delicious meals in the massive fully equipped kitchen, stocked with every culinary appliance you could possibly need. Gather in the adjoining formal dining room to enjoy your home-cooked dinner around the expansive table with seating for 12, decorated in gorgeous banded wood for a very elegant dining experience. Adjacent to the dining room is the Gold Parlor, a beautifully sophisticated room with an American Empire style of décor. After dinner, retreat to the Green Parlor, a very comfortable room decorated in the Chippendale style and featuring a large flat screen TV with DVD player.
