Description

Known as the "Downs House", this quintessential ca1750 saltbox has quite a history. This charming period home was once a tavern, toll house and a school for young ladies. In 1793 the home was bought by Rev. John Minor who sold it in 1795 to Joel Downs, the first of many Downs who occupied the property over an 80-year period including his grandson, Charles Downs, who was postmaster for 7 years. The house has 7 rooms, 3 bedrms and 2 full baths. Many original details remain including the wide board chestnut floors. Built into the side of the bank, the LL features a family room (once used as a tavern) with working fireplace, original beams and full bath. The main level includes the living room with new woodstove, kitchen, primary bedroom and another room currently used as an office but perfect for a dressing room with full bath. The upper level has two bedrooms. A rear covered porch leads to a new patio and lovely level yard. New upgrades include a remodeled main level bathroom, remodeled family room, woodstove, water heater, water pump, water filtration system, fiber optics installed, paved driveway, gutters, curtain drain and tree removal. Current owners started updating and now it's yours to make it your own! The two sets of stairs are steep and the headroom at top (only) of stairs at upper level is low. Being sold "as-is." Ideal location just a few steps from the South Britain Country Store, minutes to Southbury center, I-84 and short walk to the Pomperaug River.
