Wide plank hardwood floors! Circa 1795 in Connecticut. $264,900

March 22, 2024

Love those wide plank hardwood floors! This home was built in 1795. It is located on .49 acre in Vernon, Connecticut. The house features wide plank hardwood floors, wainscoting and chair rails. The interior has been updated a bit too much for my taste, but it’s not a bad house. There is a detached two car garage on the property. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,986 square feet. $264,900
