Renovated antique residence listed on the National Register of Historic Places
Roxbury, Conn. – November 25, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a classic Connecticut antique in the town of Roxbury, Conn. The Greek Revival-style residence, which was constructed in 1810, and recently renovated by the highly respected Litchfield County-based architect Patrick Mulberry, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Washington Depot agents Bonnie Garguilo and Larry Garguilo have the listing, which is offered at $849,000.
John T. Bronson, founder and owner of a local foundry and casting shop, originally built the home, residing at the 17-acre homestead for several years. Completely renovated and thoughtfully relocated away from the road in 2001 by architect Patrick Mulberry, the now 3.4-acre property combines the character of an authentic vintage home with fresh mechanical systems and features. Mulberry is best known for producing simple yet refined contemporary and traditional buildings with a timeless quality and strong connection to their locale.
A circular driveway leads visitors to the residence’s front doors, which open to a two-story foyer and open staircase. Continuing on, a formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace, wide board floors and expansive windows, as well as a formal dining room with original antique floors and a fully equipped butler’s pantry, allow for ample entertainment opportunities. Additional space can be found in the great room, while the kitchen includes top-notch appliances and plentiful storage. The second floor has two guest bedrooms with a full bath, and a master bedroom situated on the opposite end of the house, boasting vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, a wood-burning fireplace, marble-finished bath, as well as large windows that look out over the property’s sweeping lawns and a wildlife pond.
“This lovely antique residence has been remarkably maintained over the years,” said Bonnie. “Its details are exquisite, providing the perfect mix of old-world meets new. Patrick Mulberry is a wonderful architect, and his skills most certainly shine through in this beautiful Roxbury home.”
“Everything about the property is ideal,” added Larry. “Located within walking distance of all of Roxbury’s charming village offerings, and less than two hours away from Manhattan, the residence has everything pointing in its favor.”
A mudroom that opens to a covered back porch, and an existing outbuilding with potential for a guest house conversion, complete the property.
