New price: BRING ALL OFFERS. The owners of the Silas W. Robbins House of 1873 are ready to hear from you! A place of extraordinary beauty and romance, this Victorian mansion stands apart as one of the great period homes in Connecticut. Built for the family of a prominent businessman and now operating as a magnificent 5-7 room Bed-and-Breakfast, this historic treasure is a luxury dream home, or income-producing property, or both. In 2001, a masterful 6-year restoration lavishly transformed its 7,500 sf to create resplendent interiors and ready the home for top-notch 21st century living and function, while preserving its timeless elegance. In an area known for its historic architecture, this masterpiece is an aesthetic tour-de-force., Exterior architectural refinements include a mansard slate roof w/cast-iron cresting and porte cochere entry while the interiors feature ornate millwork, stenciled ceilings and stained glass. Highlights include a grand foyer and upper hallway with magnificent staircase, parlor, library, several dining areas and four beautifully appointed bedroom suites. The romance continues in the spectacular ballroom found on the top level of this three-tiered confection. Though steeped in 19th c. splendor, the home has also been prepared for today's luxury lifestyle with highly-efficient mechanical systems, an elevator, an expansive state-of-the-art kitchen, luxe baths and a whole-house generator. In total, there are 7 bedrooms, 8 bath and 3 powder rooms. A separate Carriage House with a 3-car garage and additional living space with full bath add to the many special amenities. Opportunities to enjoy the splendid 1.2 acre setting abound with several sunny terraces, wrap-around porch and gazebo for outdoor relaxation. Facing the charming village green of Old Wethersfield, the home is situated within two hours of both Boston and New York, and is just minutes to nearby Hartford, easily accessible via Interstates 95, 91 and 84. Whether serving as a luxurious dream home or income-producing property, or both, the Silas W. Robbins House promises to be a treasured gathering place for family and their guests for generations to come.
