Originally built in 1726 by Jeremiah Mead on 30 acres for his newly married wife. The house was initially run as a tavern since it was well situated between Wilton and Ridgefield. The property offers a multitude of possibilities for an antique aficionado. The main house has been expanded over the years with lots of light and openness infrequently found in homes of this vintage. There are three staircases, a ground floor bedroom with full bath, 4 stall barn with tack room, large grooming area, huge hayloft above, chicken coop and studio apartment over the garage with separate oil tank, furnace and electric meter. With over 3 acres of open land surrounded by stone walls it offers space for any number of activities and is currently being used for horses. Across the street is the Sackett Preserve and the Marble Van Haelewyn-Richards Preserve with over 77 acres of trails. Driving along Ridgefield Road it is not uncommon to see large sunflowers or giant pumpkins along the property depending on the season. Square footage does not include garage apartment. This very special property awaits the next steward to make it theirs.
