East Haddam, Conn. (December 5, 2018) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that the firm has listed “The Boardman House,” a historic bed & breakfast rated one of the best in the Connecticut River Valley according to TripAdvisor.com. The property at 8 Norwich Road is listed for $1,895,000 with Essex agents Colette Harron and Susan Malan.
According to the trusted hotel reservation website TripAdvisor.com, The Boardman House is ranked No. 1 out of the three bed and breakfast options locally in East Haddam. The establishment has garnered a five-star rating based on 136 independent reviews on the travel website. Famed luxury hotel magazine Condé Nast Johansens has also recognized The Boardman House as one of their “recommended properties.”
The Boardman House was built in 1860 by silversmith Norman Boardman. Born in East Haddam in 1840, Boardman was well-known at the time for working with his father at the L. Boardman & Son company, which produced and sold Britannia-styled spoons and other flatware. The current owners of the bed and breakfast have spent the past 14 years updating and renovating the inn to reflect its original style and grandeur.
The exterior of the property reflects Second Empire architecture, which extends to the interior with stately rooms that include massive ceilings, dramatic windows and an abundance of natural light. Guest rooms also feature updated mechanicals and renovated bathrooms, as well as access to a renovated kitchen with high-end appliances.
“This listing represents an incredible chance for someone seeking a terrific business and lifestyle opportunity in a region that’s rich with culture and activities,” said Harron. “East Haddam offers the charm of rural New England, and this property takes advantage of everything this area of the state offers to its residents and guests. Susan and I are proud to represent this historic property.”
