Traditional New England design converges with contemporary elegance in this authentically restored late 18th century Georgian Colonial with modern day enhancements. Classically proportioned and trimmed with timeless details, this sprawling residence is beautifully perched on over four scenic acres overlooking rolling preserved fields and beyond. The original splendidly revived four-over-four colonial is complete with double staircases, hand-carved mouldings and multiple fireplaces including a fully functional cooking hearth. An attached 50’ X 35’ barn has been transformed and expanded to create additional living space including a sun-drenched, tiled 4-season great room with wall-to-wall built-ins, architectural windows and French doors that lead to an expansive deck, hillside terrace gardens and an in-ground pool gracing private, level grounds. The homestead of Captain Ichabod Goodwin (1700 to 1778) and his son, General Ichabod Goodwin (1743 to1829) began a succession of tenure at the residence that lasted over 200 years, History buffs will revel in the rich historical consequence of the property as highlighted in the recently released account entitled “Imagining Ichabod” – a benevolent journey into the rich local and national history of 18th century America as examined and composed by the current property owners. Further study of the property has been sustained by archeologist Dr. Neill De Paoli, who, through summer field studies has continued to uncover and fill in missing history of the Goodwin home.
