What You Can Buy: Antique colonial farmhouse in Wilton for $749,000
A rare find in Wilton, this 1705 colonial farmhouse is one of the town’s original homesteads. The home, which was added on to in the 1800s and then again in the 1990s, once stretched 1,000 acres from Norwalk to Ridgefield, and has remained in one family for more than 14 generations. The remaining home and property are on the market for the first time in more than 200 years. Perched atop Olmstead Hill, the property and gardens offer a botanical experience for the new owners to meander past historic stone walls, gated arbors and specimen plantings. There are five good-sized bedrooms and a kitchen with an eat-in breakfast area. The living and dining rooms features fireplaces and retain the original floorboards under the carpeting. There is also a two-car garage and a special historic “summer kitchen” that could be used as a mudroom. A partially finished lower level offers a gym and office or play space.
