Description for 253 George Washington Highway Ridgefield, CT 06877
Own a page out of Ridgefield's history book - The Daniel Taylor, Jr. homestead, c. 1739. It is well documented by Revolutionary War historians, that in 1781, the French Army led by General Rochambeau stopped here for rest & to enjoy water from the stone lined well (still visible at the SE corner of the home) on their way to meet General George Washington, who himself had passed by in 1780, & hence for whom the street is named. Set on 2.53 pastoral acres, this quintessential 18th century colonial farmhouse still beckons all to step back in time w/wide board chestnut floors; beehive baking oven; bubbled glass in 12 over 12 paned windows; & 3 fireplaces. In addition to the main home, this bucolic country compound includes the expansive red barn w/2 garage bays, 2 horse stalls, & 2nd floor storage loft; charming garden shed; flowering trees; enormous birch & sugar maples; & rolling meadow bordered by acres of open space. Total 2,541 sf on 3 finished levels w/4 BR & 3 full baths.
