'The Traveling House' - Originally built c. 1747, this time-kept Center Chimney Colonial is like no other. Disassembled in 1970, relocated, and beautifully restored over the next 4 years, this symmetrical five-bay facade with a central door and sash windows sits back 600' from the road. Situated on a unique cement and field stone foundation, this feature is distinctive from others. Secluded on 11.83 private acres, with 770' of water-frontage, this well-preserved property captures the charm and history with many original features; such as softwood wide board floors, 5 working fireplaces, beam ceilings, wainscoting, and antique chandeliers. What's more, the design holds true to the 18th century period with a rear addition eat-in kitchen, a walk-in butler's pantry, a center island with soapstone countertops, a brick backsplash with back-drafted cooktop, and handcrafted early glass windows. Time period favorites are found in the focal point fireplace with swinging-arm crane, bake oven for wood-fired radiant-heat baking, and classic attic chimney smoke chamber. Embracing nature's serenity, there's an outdoor paver patio, water garden fountain koi pond, and private waterfront access. Located in the Clarks Falls section of town, conveniently only minutes from I-95, vineyards, beaches, casinos, Downtown Mystic, Stonington Borough, and Westerly, RI.
