Description

The rumors are true!!! The Hosmer Homestead is available for sale for only the sixth time in almost 250 years! This iconic landmark has a commanding presence on its oversized three quarter(+) acre lot! This classic center chimney Colonial pre-dates this country! It reflects all of West Hartford's history. Built by the decedents of the original family to settle Hartford's West Division, it was meant to impress. Remarkably, it still does! Standing straight and tall, this post and beam structure will last another quarter millennium! The details of the home are remarkable! Raised paneled walls adorn all of the major "chambers" from the 1770's section. The large chimney services four of the home's five fireplaces! One even has a side accessible bake oven! The wide floor boards are in all of these original rooms as well! These features reinforce the home's antiquity, but there are modern touches as well. The rear wing has a large eat-in kitchen, the dwelling's fifth fireplace, first floor laundry, and a full bath. The front parlor and buttery are now the first floor primary bedroom and full ensuite bath! The second floor has three bedrooms and a flexible space that can be used as a den, home office, or even a very cool homework space! This level has an ample third full bath. The home has had a number of updates and maintenance items checked off the list as well! Please book your private tour today, this home has so much to be seen and savored, you will be truly impressed!
