STEP BACK IN TIME Circa 1755, Pierson Farm is a rare opportunity to travel back to a time reminiscent of the old days while enjoying 21st century amenities. The house is a classic New England center-chimney cape resting on the same fieldstone foundation as it did almost 300 years ago. On the first floor is a formal parlor with working wood-burning fireplace and original paneling, a formal dining room, also with a working fireplace, original paneling and a corner cupboard. A paneled keeping room has a working Rumford fireplace with original cooking crane and beehive oven. Next to the keeping room is the brand new kitchen with quartz countertops and an oven with induction cook-top. The laundry area and full bath with historic paneling and shower completes this floor. The second floor offers 3 bedrooms featuring original timbers, vaulted ceilings and original wide board flooring. Two of the rooms enjoy tranquil views of the pond. There is also a full bath and a bookcase in the open hall area which can function as a home office. This property consists of a 4.22-acre lot, 3-bay detached garage with loft, small antique barn and wash house. There is a professionally planned and planted cottage garden, stone walls, mature plantings, fire pit, a gravel drive with generous turnaround, brick walkways and patio with wood fencing. A delightful pond and views of the neighboring hay field complete this special historic sanctuary in the peaceful town of Killingworth. A truly unique offering. This house has strong connections to one of the founders of Yale College and its first president, the Rev. Abraham Pierson, the younger who lived in the house during his tenure as minister for the church in Killingworth.
