The Eliphalet Holmes House, (c. 1730/1790) is listed on The National Register of Historic Places. An exceptional double chimney center hall, gambrel-roofed colonial with separate guest apartment and a large barn/studio outbuilding. Nationally published, this property has been lovingly and beautifully maintained throughout the years. An authentic 18th century structure with mostly original features, including wide board chestnut and oak flooring, original paneling and raised panel doors, 5 cut-granite fireplaces and windows with some hand-blown glass. The beautiful country kitchen features raised panel cupboards and a sink island, complementing the woodwork found throughout the house. Cream color cabinetry provides a contrast to the tiger maple counter tops with bread-board edging & crisscross dark hand-hewed beams overhead. The main house has 10 rooms, 4 BRs and 2.5 bathrooms. The attached 2-car carriage house has a second floor 1 BR apartment with sunny livingroom, bedroom, eat-in kitchen and full bath. The 2000 square foot barn has been used as an art & antiques gallery, but offers many possibilities. Nearby historic attractions include Gillette Castle, Chester/Hadlyme Ferry & The Goodspeed Opera House. First time offered in 33 years by current owner. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!
