Notes from the listing:
The 1774 Early American Colonial has wide plank floors and five fireplaces. You can imagine Nathaniel Taylor having discussions with prominent Revolutionary figures right in the spacious dining room. The home retains many original features and is full of charm.
Walk past the First Congregational Church on your left and enter into the kitchen through a mudroom pantry area at the back of the house. Take a blissful moment to enjoy the peaceful garden and 250+-year-old tree back there!
There are two staircases and a full basement. The 1764 sq ft accessory building at the back of the property was built as an office for Mr. Barlow in 1992, and is included in the sale. The New Milford Trust for Historic Preservation is the current steward of this magnificent property and is looking for that special owner who can truly appreciate all this unique home has to offer. Also listed as commercial, village center zoning.
Light a fire and read a book in the library or lounge in the comfortable living room. The main floor also has a bedroom, full bath, and powder room.
The dining room has plenty of room to hold large gatherings and parties just like the former owners did.
Who Was Nathaniel Taylor, You Ask?
The Reverend Nathaniel Taylor, second minister of the First Congregational Church next door, built this house for his eldest son, Colonel Nathaniel Taylor.
