This 1850 former Hunting Ridge Methodist Church provides a little piece of historic North Stamford in this unique and intriguing offering. Converted into a ranch-style home, this property was once a gathering place of worship and solitude for some of Stamford’s early settlers. Some of the ceilings are 13 feet high and the kitchen has a wonderful brick floor with an oversized set of sliders that open to the rear patio. The kitchen also has a skylight and walk-in pantry and a breakfast bar. The living room has an oversized wood-burning fireplace. A social room was added to the building in 1902. The converted home, which boasts six rooms and sits on 0.3 acres, also has a whole house generator. The home is perched on a high site with a wonderful exposure and natural landscaping that will surround the new owners in privacy. Famed sculptor Robert Laurent is the father of Paul Laurent, the most recent occupant of the home.
