Historic Benjamin Pierce mini-estate with beautiful grounds. This beautifully restored home by the late New York designer Jeffrey Riedel, features chestnut floors, six fireplaces and in-ground pool with cabana. A remarkable vintage home with rare nine-foot plus ceilings, generous room sizes, many built-ins, six fireplaces and a detached architecturally designed carriage house with a 3 car garage and room for expansion above. This stately, elegant Federal-style home built in 1750 was home to Southbury's premiere First Selectman. Meticulously restored by its present owner, this home is built for entertaining. Lavish gatherings in the formal living room, a casual brunch in the beautifully appointed kitchen, coffee in the cozy library or a barbecue in the cabana by the pool, this home can accommodate any function. In addition, there is a three-season porch overlooking the backyard & pool and an old-fashioned front porch. This gem is full of all the charm one expects from a well done antique home; cozy study with bookshelves and fireplace, large eat-in kitchen with built-ins, beamed ceiling, and eat-in space, four good-sized second-floor bedrooms, three of which have fireplaces and lastly a small second-floor studio apartment. Located an hour and twenty minutes from NY City and minutes to I-84, Southbury town center and Woodbury's fine restaurants.
