Reproduction Saltbox Colonial On Nearly 5 Acre
Hadlyme is the setting for this reproduction Saltbox Colonial. It sits on nearly five acres of land and is surrounded by another 20 acres of open space in the Shelter Rock Farms subdivision. Guided by well-known builder Skip Broom, the owners called upon the architect of Old Sturbridge Village, Russell Swinton Oatman to design their home. From the Hardiplank siding to the Emtek hardware to the southern yellow pine floors no detail has been spared.The three wood-burning fireplaces in the great room, dining room and Country kitchen remind you of long ago days. The kitchen counters are granite with Italian tiles on the floor. Signature Cabinetry did the knotty cherry cabinets with self-closing drawers. There is a security system and the set-up for a Central Vac. The mechanicals are amazing. The HS Tarm boiler can be fueled with either wood or oil and a 650 gallon heat storage tank helps the wood burn more efficiently. There are two 330 gallon oil tanks in case you want to buy in bulk for a discount. The enormous three car garage includes a 950 foot storage attic and is heated by a radiant slab - plenty of room for cars or boats. By the way, walk or drive to Gillette Castle or the Ferry on the CT River.
