Midway between NYC and Boston in the Post Hill District of New London, sits the 1847 John Arnold House, a stately Greek Revival house, at one time the home of two famous sea captains James Francis Smith & John "Boney" Rice. The welcoming front hall opens into the light-filled front parlor with its original 8" high windows, parquet quarter-sawn oak floor, high ceiling with medallion and italian marble fireplace surround. Beyond the front parlor, separated by original pocket doors, is the cozy back parlor with gas insert fireplace. The large formal dining room opens into the pantry with wetbar, as well as into the enclosed sunporch. Entertaining will be a dream in the updated kitchen featuring teak counters. Finishing off the first floor is a bedroom/study, full bath and laundry hookups. The second floor can be configured to your needs with 6 rooms and two full baths. The home has a legal apartment complete with a full kitchen and second entrance, but is currently being used as a single-family residence. Surrounded by perennial gardens, the backyard terrace is a perfect spot for afternoon tea and alfresco dining. The walk-up attic has plenty of storage space and is a prime spot for viewing the annual New London fireworks display. This classic home offers a perfect location - within walking distance of the Garde Theatre, many of New London's fine restaurants and art galleries and the Riverfront Park.
