    A perfect home. I cannot imagine how this can be improved upon in any way. I love everything about it. Another CT gem. Stunning on the interior and exterior (you may remember how much I love that so attractive red) — and the river meandering by. Perfection all around.

    May the next owner’s days be Merry and Bright
    And may all their kitchen appliances stay White.

    So lovely, so perfect..so very Connecticut.
    I’d love to see that garden in High Summer.

    Or any other time.

  11. This house is so perfect!!!!

    What you see is Federal period – more like circa 1800.

    Nicely done. I love everything about this house and setting….except the white replacement windows. I’d have a hard time accepting those, since you cannot paint them a trim color.
