Wilton, CT – April 21, 2014 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed the 1915 Samuel Keeler House in one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Wilton, Connecticut. Westport Brokerage agent Todd Gibbons has the listing, which is offered at $2,749,000.
The Keeler family owned 70 acres of farmland originally given to Samuel Keeler, Sr., in 1709 by the Town of Norwalk, as payment “on condition that he erect a belfry on top of the meeting house.” Many generations later Isaiah Keeler (the great-great-great grandson of the patriarch of the Fairfield County Keelers, Ralph Keeler) was deeded a home and 25 acres on the hilltop of Ridgefield Road in 1819. Isaiah Keeler’s twin brother, Samuel V, lived on this homestead, now located at 550 Ridgefield Road.
Perched on a hilltop, the Samuel Keeler House rests on 4.76 acres of land including a barn, patio, terrace, porch and swimming pool. The antique Colonial is surrounded by professionally manicured lawns, with natural stone pathways connecting the main house to the barn, guest house and caretaker’s apartments as well as a tavern.
“This spectacular gentleman’s farm is a unique find in Southern Fairfield County,” said Gibbons. “The property provides an exceptional lifestyle, whether you’re relaxing by the pool, horseback riding or reading in the library. The house both inspires and rewards!”
The main residence is spacious with nine-foot ceilings and an abundance of natural light. The kitchen has been updated to include the latest amenities with granite countertops and a practical center island. The home’s antique appeal is seen through its original hardwood flooring and exposed wood beams accenting the library. Eight original fireplaces warm the house and complete the historic and New England feel of the home.
Constructed in 1915, the home offers a total of 5,952 square feet of living space with 16 rooms including seven bedrooms as well as five and a half baths.Additional amenities include central cooling, a security system, well water and a detached five-car garage.
