William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Historic Winsted Victorian Built by Town’s Founding Father


Meticulously maintained antique property with rich town history and two-level barn for sale

Winsted, Conn. – March 12, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realtyannounced today that the firm has listed a historic Victorian home in Winsted, Conn., that was built by the town’s founding father, John Hinsdale.  The property, which includes an architecturally detailed two-story barn, is represented by Lakeville agent Gregg Stallings, and offered at $329,000.

Constructed in 1849, this grand Victorian residence was built by Winsted’s founding father John Hinsdale, making it a historic town landmark.  Over the years, the home has been meticulously maintained, with up-to-date features and amenities.  A wraparound porch greets visitors entering the residence, where one will find a total of ten rooms, with five bedrooms and two baths. 

Included with the property is an original two-story barn that is currently zoned for commercial use.  Presumably believed to have once serving as a stopping point on the Underground Railroad with sleeping quarters still intact, the historic structure now offers opportunities for studio space, an art gallery, antique store and more.

“There’s a reason why this home is the starting and ending point for all town parades every year,” said Stallings.  “The neighborhood is ideal, complete with so much rich history, and the home itself is timeless and full of nothing but great charm and wonderful opportunities.  I’m honored to represent such a significant piece of Connecticut’s past.”
