Description

Prepare to be WOWED by 87 Beecher Road – one of Woodbridges most distinct and unique properties – steeped in history and, in the hands of its current owners, has been amazingly renovated and remodeled! This estate is on 3.89 acres of private, secluded, beautifully landscaped grounds. The main house, with an inviting wrap-around porch, includes 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, hardwood floors throughout, 2 stone fireplaces, and views of the property from every room. Bold colors and style are the focus of a newly remodeled kitchen with an Italian Forno stove/oven, marble countertops, Subzero refrigerator, Whirlpool dishwasher, and copper sink. The stunning formal dining area leads to the oversized main living room. Step into the sun-filled family room, originally used as an art studio, with vaulted ceilings that feels cozy and oversized all at the same time. Each room beautifully blends drama and warmth and makes you feel right at home. Above the oversized 3-car garage sits a carriage house with two bedrooms and remodeled full bath. Enjoy summers sitting around the in-ground gunite pool or entertaining in the many landscaped areas of the property. For outdoor enthusiasts, Woodbridge boasts walking trails, mountain biking trails, and nearby farm markets. Centrally located in the heart of Woodbridge, 87 Beecher Road is conveniently located near Yale University, downtown New Haven, the Connecticut shoreline, and 90 minutes from NYC. Built by Howard Adt , the owner of Geometric Tool Company of Westville, CT, the home was set on 40 acres of property and used as a summer retreat for Howard, his wife Henrietta and their daughter Ruth. Ruth Adt was one of the first women admitted to the Yale School of Art. Ruth sailed to Europe and brought back handmade tiles from Germany and installed them around the fireplace in the lower room, which she used as her art studio and which still exists in the home. The ceiling of the lower room also includes some of her work in the plaster in the ceiling. Ruth was a prize winning horticulturalist specializing in breeding Irises. She laid out the property much like ones she enjoyed seeing in Europe including the creation of the arbor and planting of the Japanese Umbrella Pine, the Antique Copper Beech tree as well as the English box garden, all of which are still standing today. The Japanese Umbrella Pine is recognized by the Connecticut Notable Tree Project as the largest Japanese Umbrella Pine on private property in Connecticut. UPDATES: Entire kitchen renovation.
