  1. I really like these very early Federal/Saltbox/Cape styles and these last 2 postings from Connecticut seem like good examples of those that have struck a good balance between preservation and updating for livability. But, I’m from the Midwest and maybe I’m just dazzled by photographs and having a “17” in front of the build date.

  2. I love this beautiful home! Just think, when this house was built George Washington was in the second year of his presidency.

      • Well sure; and I’m assuming you mean the bit about the “curious creatures”. Heheheh. 😉 Seems to me the sheep appearing at the front door in pic. 1 is tin; but is it a real lamb? It does not appear in pic. 2. Is it real – did it move? Did someone move it – why would they? There he is again in pic. 5. Did someone think he’d look better there – or did he? Is it really a sheep; or maybe a poodle, or an ugly cat? Where’s Waldo in pic. 9 – but naaaah, surely not? There’s food down for somebody in pic. 19 – – ? -. People do keep pigs as pets after all: and ferrets, and foxes, and chipmunks – etc.; why not a lamb – I guess? Lol.

  3. Ugh, That attic room with the fireplace. I’d never leave there. Bedroom for sure:)

    • That’s the “office”. It’s the little building to the right facing the front elevation, and connected by a now enclosed breezeway. I dig it too: especially for the “Yankee thrift” of it’s design. It was probably for a doctor or lawyer originally.

  4. Just Wow! I love Janet A’s comment that President George Washington was in his Presidency! Really puts the age of the house into prospective!
