    Either this is the same Singer home I’ve posted before or a different stone Singer home.

    Interesting. I’ve driven past this home for years. My family came over from Italy and moved to Derby CT. My Nonna lived near this house. Always wondered what it looked like inside. Its the smallest city in CT 5 miles square. Was a booming town, that had a beautiful town center that mostly all been demolished. Sad.

    This is a really interesting house with lots of great features (I have a feeling those flagstone floors are pretty cold in a Connecticut winter, tho!)

    LOVE, love, love, love the top shelf, 80’s kitchen! SO fortunate that the (Knoll – Chromcraft ?) stools were left in place. Throw some great color in there and watch it shine!

    This whole house reminds me of the room where “Tommy” gets made. 😉

    I’d remember this house if it had been on the site before because I LOVE IT. I don’t care how cold the slate floors would get, they’re beautiful and can be warmed up with some area rugs. Except for the wallpapered rooms, It looks like the interior was coated in cheap white paint to prepare for this sale. Needs some color to warm it up a bit, but that’s it! Windows proportions are generous.

      Yes, all that white is overkill. I’d love to see any other colors throughout, even gray (which I’ve come to loathe, it’s used so much these days!).

      Aside from that, I really like the house, which is gorgeous on the outside.

    Too bad I only own Janome machines. 😉

    Slate and cork floors, quite the spread between those two.
    The liberal use of white paint really has blanked out the interior. Careful colour choice, to compliment that lovely green slate, will really make the features stand out.

    I will admit I’ve lost count, but my 3 Singer treadles, 2 Featherweights, 1 403, assorted 500 Rocketeers, 404s, 301s, 99s in dome cases, and a few parts machines could PROBABLY feel at home here. (I’m not a hoarder. I can stop anytime I want. I just don’t want to.) Way too much white for my comfort, but that’s easily remedied! Gorgeous setting.

      Same here. I’m not a hoarder. I’m a collector though most coming into my house are shocked by the amount of my collection. I’m setting the stage for an authentic time travel house back to 1880

        Our time traveler would land closer to 1905 or thereabouts! We have an Edison cylinder machine and a couple of Victrolas, so we’d have music to listen to while we sew on our treadles.
