A town landmark long believed to be Madison’s oldest home is now for sale
Madison, Conn. – February 19, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realtyannounced today that the firm has listed a historic Colonial style home that is long believed to be the oldest residence in the town of Madison, Conn. Madison agent Margaret Muir has the listing, which is offered at $729,000.
The Colonial saltbox style residence was said for years to be built in 1675, making it Madison’s oldest home, although recent research reveals the possibility of the home having been constructed circa 1720. Located on 1.3 acres of land across from the Town Green, this period residence represents a true piece of New England history. Previously owned by the locally prominent Dudley family, the home once operated as a tavern, where, in 1776, General George Washington was served what was reputedly known as the best food in the area known then as “East Guilford.”
Over the generations, the 2,241 square-foot, three-bedroom residence has been preserved to maintain many of its original features including original fireplaces, corner cupboards, wide plank floors, paneling, beams, hand-wrought hardware and more. While authentically antique in style, the white, wood-roofed house is also highly adaptable and livable for modern use.
“There is such rich history and character in this house,” said Muir. “This, along with its convenient location within walking distance of downtown and the Long Island Sound, make it the perfect place to call home. I am honored to be representing the beautiful white house with the green shutters and charming fence that everyone knows—a defining landmark in the town of Madison.”
