Built circa 1830 and situated in the East Haddam Historic District near restaurants and shopping . Short drive to nature areas, state parks including Gillette Castle, and the shoreline beaches and seafood. Enjoy views of Connecticut River from the house and front deck, cool breezes in summer, and acres of trees changing color in the fall. Lots to do in the area!

The space
The home has original details throughout, including wide-plank wood floors, original glass in the windows, a dutch door in the kitchen leading out to a brick terrace, and traditional paint colors from the mid-1800's. Furnished with a mixture of traditional and antique pieces that make it feel comfortable and clean. The views from almost every window are breathtaking - the wide Connecticut River to the front, and old-growth trees and limestone walls stretching up in the back to the cliffs above. Dishes, cookware, and silver are a combination of new and antique, with a blender, french press, refrigerator in the eat-in kitchen, and a full size washer and dryer.

The home is located in the historic district of East Haddam, CT, enabling guests to enjoy the serenity of the woods and the river while also being able to walk to the village of East Haddam. Along the way, you will pass gorgeous colonial-era homes, the local library, a cemetery established in the early 1700s, the Nathan Hale Schoolhouse, and amenities like Common Ground cafe, the Sweet Shop, the Gelston House restaurant, and the Goodspeed Opera House. A quick trip down Rt 9 brings you to the villages of Essex and Chester, which are known for their boutiques, restaurants, antique shops, and other amenities. Along with boating and hiking (and cross-country skiing in winter), the house provides easy access to swimming at the Moodus reservoir and Cedar Lake, and visits to Gillette Castle. East Haddam is located 20 minutes north of Old Saybrook and other shore towns, where there is public access to ocean beaches. 20 minutes to the north is Middletown and Wesleyan University.
