Description

A timeless colonial with a rich history, 12 Ferry Bridge, constructed in 1790 carries with it a legacy that dates back over two centuries. Its story begins with Erastus Hurlburt, son of Major Horace Hurlburt & a member of the illustrious Hurlburt family, who acquired the property in 1850. Erastus Hurlburt is a descendant of Joseph Hurlburt, an early settler who established the eastern section of what is now Washington in 1734. Erastus Hurlburt owned the general store for many years until his death in 1902. Over the years, the house has served various purposes, each contributing to its cultural significance. In 1903, the house became the clubhouse of the Washington Club, a recreational hub for residents & Yale athletes for summer training. The Washington Club's ownership of the property lasted until 1945, when it was sold to the Gunnery & repurposed as a dormitory until 1969. To preserve this cherished piece of history, the house was saved from demolition & meticulously relocated to its present In-TOWN location. The current & fifth owner has taken care to enhance the features of the home & surroundings. Lovely screened-in porch offers space to unwind, overlooking private hillside, specimen trees & vibrant gardens complete w protective fencing. Gorgeous new primary bath. Traditional New England 3 story center hall colonial elements combined w the home's rich history, this beauty is ready for the next owner to maintain the architectural legacy while integrating modern amenities. Nestled in cozy setting. Walk to town, Riverwalk Park, cafes and market on some of the prettiest streets in the area with rolling hills, dotted by spectacular homes. Large functional kitchen with center island and utility sink. Soapstone, stainless countertops. Excellent ceiling height for a home of this age. Wide stairwells and wood banisters to the second and third floors. Third floor has three distinct rooms, heat, electricity and plumbing fixtures for customizable future uses, nanny's quarters, office, living spaces. 2 Car barn has electricity and vaulted second floor. Protective deer fencing surrounds garden lawns. Private yet so close to everything. Gunnery has a deeded right of refusal. Inquire for available furnishings
