In an area known for its historic architecture, the Silas W. Robbins House of 1873 stands apart as one of the great period homes in Connecticut. A masterful 6-year restoration (2001-07) resulted in a lavish transformation that preserved the timeless elegance of this distinguished Second Empire mansion. From its mansard roof with cast-iron cresting and porte-cochere entry to its remarkable interiors resplendent with ornate millwork and stained glass, the 7,500 sq ft home is an aesthetic tour-de-force. Highlights include a grand foyer, parlor, library, and several dining areas. A spectacular ballroom is found on the top level of this three-tiered confection, presently operating as a Bed-and-Breakfast. Readied for 21st century living, there is a deluxe kitchen, 7 ensuite bedrooms, 9 full and 3 half baths, elevator, state-of-the-art mechanical systems and whole-house generator, and carriage house with 3-car garage. Opportunities to enjoy the splendid 1.2 acre setting abound with several sunny terraces, wrap-around porch and gazebo. Facing the charming village green in the historic district, the setting is one mile from the scenic Connecticut River. Situated within two hours of both Boston and New York, and just minutes to Hartford easily accessible via Interstates 95, 91 and 84. Whether serving as a dream luxury home or income-producing property, or both, the Silas W. Robbins House promises to be a treasured gathering place for family and guests for generations to come.
