The Lt. Elisha Root House, originally built in 1763, was disassembled, relocated and reconstructed on it's current site in 1986. It took 30 craftsmen 2 years to complete this museum quality restoration of the historic home of a CT Revolutionary War officer.
Historic architectural features include the rare front entrance, one of only 3 like it in New England. 3 oversized Bedrooms, Front Parlor, wideboard floors, extensive moldings, Keeping Room, Borning Room, Buttery, 4 Fireplaces, and beautiful built-ins all provide the authentic charm of the 18th century with the convenience of the 21st. Large Walk-Up Attic provides room for expansion. With 1980's foundation and mechanicals this is an 18th century home without the 18th century problems.
Very private, lovely 8+ acres on prestigious Poverty Hollow Road with sounds of the Aspetuck River and waterfall. The property abuts Centennial Watershed State Forest. Approx one hour to NYC and easy access to Rt 58 and Merritt Parkway. Country living at it's best.
