Homes on Main Street in Newtown, Connecticut, are deemed prime real estate by virtue of location alone. The picturesque town chartered in 1709 is known throughout the region its unspoiled “downtown” punctuated by a massive flagpole at its center.
Main Street is known for its one shop (a charming general store) and stately former town hall, now housing offices and a $2 movie theater. It’s known for welcoming hundreds of trick-or-treaters every Halloween as residents go to great lengths to elaborately decorate their homes.
Mostly, Main Street is known for those historic and lovingly restored homes, and this is a classic example. Built in 1904, the 5,427 square-foot Queen Anne-style residence with the wide, inviting porch has been extensively updated without sacrificing an iota of its historic importance and endearing charm. There’s elegant millwork throughout, including grand doors and fireplace surrounds, detailed balustrades and coffered ceilings.
The home features seven bedrooms and six full baths. The marble kitchen is drop-dead gorgeous; there’s a separate butler’s pantry with an Italian porcelain tile floor. The third floor has four additional rooms and another full bath, rooms not included in the square footage. There’s currently a professional office housed on the first floor with its own separate entrance.
This is a singularly beautiful home on two acres featuring everything there is to love about Main Street—and more. The property is listed for $1,049,000 by Cyndy DaSilva of Berkshire Hathaway New England Properties in Newtown, CT. The MLS # 170034238. For more information visit the property website.
