    Description

    Here's your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own and live in a piece of history with this 18th-century Double Chimney, Center Hall, Gambrel-roofed Colonial. Sited on over 13 acres, this property also features a saltbox style barn/studio with heat and air conditioning, it has served as an art & antique gallery and could serve other home-based businesses models as well. The one-bedroom apartment over the carriage house, has its own private entrance and is also a good source of passive income.The Eliphalet Holmes House (c. 1730/1790) is listed on The National Register of Historic Places and has been beautifully maintained to preserve its authenticity and many of its original features, including wide board chestnut and oak flooring, original paneling, some blown glass windows, and raised panel doors. A large doorway in the lower level near the roadway along with residual signs of interior whitewashing point to its periodic use as a storefront and possibly served judge Holmes as holding cell. This home features 6 cut-granite fireplaces including a summer fireplace in the lower level with a beehive oven. The beautiful country kitchen features raised panel cupboards and a sink island, complementing the woodwork found throughout the house. Cream color cabinetry provides a contrast to the tiger maple countertops with bread-board edging & crisscross dark hand-hewed beams overhead. Nearby historic attractions include Gillette's Castle, Chester/Hadlyme Ferry & The Goodspeed Opera House.
