February 12, 2020

I love this old mill converted to a private residence! And I love Alfie, the dog. This cider mill was built in 1706. It is located on 3.76 acres in Sandy Hook, Connecticut. Beautiful landscaping and outdoor patios. How about that kitchen! The property has a detached barn/garage with a guest suite over. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 3,084 square feet. $585,000

From the Zillow listing:


Hi! I’m Alfie! As resident pup here in this wonderfully re-imagined 1800’s mill building, I can’t wait to tell you about this place. From warm summer nights relaxing on the herring-bone brick patio to crisp fall days, this place sure has provided me with a ton of memories. Watch your step as we enter the bright, updated chef’s kitchen with stainless steel everything, including the farmhouse sink; this is where scraps from dinners made their way into my bowl. I can still hear the laughter, as parties would spill over into the family room, with exposed beams and a fire in the stove. Continue right into the cozy sunroom with views of my favorite yard! As the days and nights blend together we all grew older and I began to yearn for more relaxing activities to pass the time. These days, I find myself enjoying a slumber in the quiet study, lounging in the bright master bedroom with soaring ceilings and wood stove, or lapping up a sip of water in the luxurious master shower. The smaller humans love to snooze in their big rooms down the hall that share another updated bathroom. Aside from lots of napping- it’s never a dull moment here at the “mill” with a steady flow of visitors using our Air BnB guest suite above our reproduction garage/barn nearly every weekend! Folks from the city or other points loved to rub my belly. Sometimes, they would even join us on the backyard stone patio for a BBQ! This place sure is special – but now it’s time for my family and I to move onto our next adventure!
