One of the few Victorian (Gothic Revival) style homes in West Hartford built before the turn of the last century. Originally located on the land now owned by the American School for the Deaf, the home was moved to its current location in 1923. Convenient location near West Hartford center and Fernridge Park. The cozy front porch leads into the Parlour (living room) with hardwood floors. The hardwood continues into the formal dining room and the front Parlour (family room) with builtins and wood burning stove. The eatin kitchen with maple cabinets has a country feeling with bead board accents. The pantry/mudroom leads out to a 14 x 16' no maintenance composite deck. There is a main floor full bath with shower. The 2nd floor offers 4 bedrooms with hardwood floors throughout plus a full bath. There is a detached 2 car garage with a workshop above. Many recent updates - Roof (2011), Deck (2008), converted to gas and installed high efficiency boiler (2015), installed CT Basement waterproofing system with transferable warranty.
