Description

Step back in time to this charming 1920's Colonial (first owned by Pratt & Whitney engineer, George Cooper), located in the Fairfield Avenue National Historic District, just minutes from downtown Hartford with access to restaurants, Bushnell Park, a baseball park and several theaters. This home has over 2300 square feet and features 4 bedrooms, 1.1 baths and a partially finished basement w/a kitchenette & convenient bath that is just steps from the patio & gardens. Entering through the front vestibule, w/tile floor and tin ceiling, a French door leads to the center hallway showing off the home's original natural woodwork and lovely mahogany staircase. The spacious living room has high ceilings, HW floors (which run throughout most of the home), a wood burning fireplace & French doors to the sunroom. The formal dining room is a showstopper, featuring French doors from the hallway, mahogany wainscoting & 2 corner hutches for display and storage, which have been admired by many woodworking experts. The large wood-floored kitchen has a prep area w/granite counters, a spacious eating area and a wood stove for added coziness. Reflective of its history, the square radiator next to the swing door to the dining room (now behind cabinetry) is thought to have been used to keep food warm during dinners and from the kitchen there is a back staircase to the 2nd floor. A powder room completes the main floor. Upstairs you will find all 4 bedrooms, including the primary w a walk-in closet. There is also a walkup attic that allows for more storage. This home offers a newer roof, 200 amp electrical plus gas heat and hot water. Of note, the gardens at 209 Fairfield have won two awards and have been visited by garden clubs and plant enthusiasts. Many perennials to be found. It is being SOLD AS-IS. In 2010, the entire length of Fairfield Avenue was placed on the National Register of Historic Districts, thanks to the efforts of the current owners, with assistance from the Hartford Preservation Alliance. Any repairs/or maintenance to the home is eligible for an historic tax credit, which can cover up to 30% of the total cost. For more information, contact the Hartford Preservation Alliance.
