From the Zillow listing:


Step back in time without sacrificing modern amenities in this historic, three-bedroom, two-bath antique colonial situated on a one-acre lightly wooded lot just minutes from Route 9 in picturesque Haddam. Built circa 1786, this wonderful home retains the charm and character of a New England farmhouse, with features such as a sweeping covered porch, wide-plank pine flooring, exposed beam and wood-panel ceilings, four working fireplaces including two converted to propane and much more. These unique features blend seamlessly with updates including a fully renovated chef’s kitchen, new energy-efficient windows, vaulted ceilings with skylights, heat pump air conditioning and convenient first-floor laundry. The open feel of the expansive porch continues inside, with a floor plan that offers separate rooms in front that can function as either a formal living/dining room, den or home office and an open flow in back, where the kitchen, dining area and family room form the heart of the home. A large combination mud/laundry room with convenient built-ins and a full bath round out the main level. All three bedrooms are located on the second level, two with cozy fireplaces with one also offering a large custom closet. An additional full bath boasts updated fixtures and finishes. For the automobile enthusiast, an oversized, attached two-car garage offers plenty of extra space for outdoor tools and toys. Character and attention to detail abound in this one-of-a-kind home! Car lift does not convey.
