Built in 1829 as a shipwright's workshop servicing the active boat building trade in East Haddam, this incredible historic home and its unique grounds have simply improved through time.

A cozy, formal dining area and modern but rustic granite, quarry tile and stainless steel kitchen, complete with Velux sky-lighted breakfast nook, will be perfect for entertaining or just peaceful relaxation. Upstairs you will find two unique post and beam bedrooms, ample closet space as well as a third bedroom/office/ entertainment room on the lower level with breathtaking stone interior walls and exposed chestnut beams. Throughout the home you will find lovingly hand-restored wide board chestnut flooring…these are as rare as they are beautiful. The mechanicals are top-notch and the utility room is immaculate. Over an acre of lawns, rustic stone walls, brick walkways and lovely perennial gardens in the English country style will be yours. You will live within walking distance of the village of East Haddam, the charming shops, restaurants and , of course, the world renowned Goodspeed Opera House. This is a rare opportunity to own, and to be a steward of, an exceptional post- colonial home…a true-and truly beautiful- piece of history.
