  1. I love the paint colors they chose. Actually I kind of like everything (although it looks like the interior had a makeover at some point) and wouldn’t do much except change out the newer light fixtures and maybe a couple of other small things. You think they’d throw in their sewing table? 😀

      I agree, Kelly. Other than a few, fairly minor things, this house absolutely oozes warmth, light, and cozy yumminess (the colors, hardwood floors, and all that natural light)! Overall, it’s simply begs you to come inside to snuggle up with a book and something warm to drink.
      This beauty surely cannot be ONLY just under 3700 sq ft, can it? It definitely appears to be much larger.
      And I had my eye on that sewing table also. It’s definitely a keeper!

      I agree! Love pretty much everything. How cute is that pantry! I would love to have a room with GOOD light for sewing and ironing. So dark at my house.

    Lots & lots of windows, incl. bays, making for plenty of natural light! 👍🏼

    The ceilings seem low and I am wondering if we are viewing the original height?

    Nothing Gothic Revival here.

    • Why do you think that? It’s a pet peeve of mine when someone comes here and says “This isn’t that style…” and then nothing else. If you do not see the Gothic Revival influences here then you don’t understand what Gothic Revival is.

        This center gable form is probably the most common Gothic Revival type built, so that’s a pretty good giveaway that there’s at least some Gothic Revival styling here. The glimpse of the newel post also looks like a nice example of Gothic influence. The bargeboards and some other details have likely been changed and simplified. There’s maybe some Greek Revival influence seen with the wide frieze boards, front corner trim that may be imitating pilasters, and the pedimented lintels over the second story windows (although these are Victorianized as well). Oddly enough, the most interesting thing to me is the bottom sash of the center bay second story window. Wonder why it’s like that.

          Thanks CharlestonJohn. I had wondered if this was built earlier as a Greek Revival and updated with Gothic details. I felt the Gothic details outweighed the Greek so labeled it as such.

          The house didn’t exist on a detailed map in 1869, so it must have started as a late Gothic Revival house sometime after that. Maybe the classical details were added a few decades later. The gazebo seems to capture the original style.

            Thank Jim for trying to turn something up on the history.

            Jim, I thought the house shown on the 1869 map as belonging to J.A. Williams was the posted house prior to a remodel/ expansion. You’re better at reading these than I am.

              C-John, I scaled it off between the existing streets and this house is south of the Williams house, unless the streets have moved.
              I’m seeing a lot of details from about 1880 except for a couple of mantels that might have been brought in. It doesn’t make sense to me that they would have built the big Gothic center dormer and rebuilt the interior, but left the little window pediments and dentils that would have come right off.
              It’s possible the exterior was classicized later and the odd Gothic gable trusses were a recent attempt to bring that aspect back. That’s why I mentioned the gazebo, which looks like a modern designer’s model of what the house may have looked like. I could be wrong, but I’ll stick with my first impression.

    Kelly, I have that same table in my kitchen. It was my great grandmother’s table! My husband just refinished it and we use it as our dining room table because it actually has two leaves you can insert to seat up to 8 people. If I ever sell it I’ll keep you in mind! I love this house and CT is a beautiful state. I’d move there in a heartbeat if I could afford it! The house is a great price though, and in beautiful condition, I wouldn’t change a thing!

    ….. House is meticulous, neat and clean: Realtors take note …. THIS is how to show a house!
    I LOVE the way the kitchen floor tile has been laid …. very creative and beautiful. I HATE radiators – but the one in the kitchen is a masterpiece of design; totally Neoclassical in feeling, almost like a small iron heating stove. I could live with rads like this in any rooms!

    Where has this house been all my life??? There is not one thing I would change. Would move in in a heartbeat. Thanks for finding and sharing this beauty!

    This is a lovely home, it was newly painted a few years back. I live in South Killingly which is up a mile or two from the town of Danielson. This part of town is nice not beautiful like some towns in New England. But this is a nice property well cared for and up the Street from the famous Logee’s Greenhouse, the oldest in the country. Worth the trip to visit the Quiet Corner of Connecticut.

    Love the kitchen! Not thrilled with the color selections throughout the rest of the house. But it’s on our list to see.
