    Beautiful garden and mature trees! I love the openess of the layout, although it seemed like a lot of repeats, 2 dining rooms 2 livingrooms…maybe that was the way they did it? A lot of original items in kitchen GREAT! Bathrooms look almost all original too. Fabulous windows and views!

    Great home, and I spy the original Frigidaire Flair (or Tappan Visualite) wall oven in the kitchen!

      Good eye! As the owner I can confirm that it’s a Frigidaire Flair Custom Imperial. Still works well too! Thanks to everyone for the kind comments!

        A beautiful home, I’ll bet the living room is wonderful in winter, with snow falling outside and a fire going in the woodstove…it is awesome to see a mid-century with so many original features. I love our Queen Anne, but if I ever move, I would probably look for a MCM ranch like yours…

          Thank you so much Mike! It really is lovely in winter to be warm and cozy and watch the snow fall. It can be quite beautiful!

            I think your house is very special! Your updates in the great existing kitchen and baths are so smart and well done. Feel sorry for you having to leave the place. 🙁

              Thank you Rosewater! You’re right, I don’t think we’ll ever find a place like this again and it was perfect for what we needed at the time!

    Windham is a wonderful community with a quaint and very historic Windham Center Village and later homes, like this gem, built in the immediate surrounding area. Clean, quiet, leafy and green, with the Shetucket River for canoeing and kayaking. Willimantic is our urban revitalized downtown featuring good restaurants, museums, shopping and town government. Windham’s residents are welcoming, diverse and friendly – committed to community and each other. In short, the town is a gem.

    The back side of the house reminds me of FLW and is it Craftsman or Prairie?

    LOVE IT!!!! Such a beautiful style home and love the property,I would put nothing but eames era furniture inside and would have fun in my retirement years working on this house.Im going to have to look into the town and area and see if this would be a good place to grow old in.Ive got to see if the taxes are low enough too. GREAT Fireplace too!!! The lower level looks like a fun area to have a theater room and Ping Pong table.

      I know Kenneth, I drool over this house, it is gorgeous! I can tell you Windham is a wonderful place to live! I have a home in Windham Center, maybe 5 minutes away. Taxes are moderate for Connecticut, crime is practically non-existent and the community spirit can’t be beat. I upsized, moved north and we expect to retire here. There is plenty to do; Willimantic is our urban downtown with a charming main street, good restaurants and interesting shops. Eastern Connecticut State University is in town and UCONN is in Storrs, about 20 minutes away. Both universities provide cultural, arts and sports events. EastCONN has a planatarium. Windham also has a local hospital. Meh…but there is Backus Hospital in Norwich, a neighboring town. Hiking trails, parks, Shetucket River. Windham Center has monthly rotating Soup Nites and St. Paul’s has a bi-monthly Village Coffee event Saturday mornings. There’s more outside a 20 minute radius. A local newspaper, senior center, 3rd Thursday parades and an outdoor music venue right in Windham.

    Beautiful. Be still my heart! Everything I’d want with an MCM on a wooded lot. Exercise room, bar area, woodwork. (looks at job postings at Eastern Conn State Univ).
