Nestled safely on a serene 4 acres in the peaceful, sprawling town of Killingworth, Connecticut sits 541 Higganum Road composed in 1755 with many of its 18th Century details intact. Composed, as opposed to built, as in the 18th century homes embraced rooms with purpose; rooms that would sustain memories orchestrated and appreciated by generations to follow.Upon arrival at this special location, situated a mere 8 miles from the Shoreline, you’ll immediately bond with the property’s enchanting environment. The Main House, a Center Chimney Cape, is complimented by a small barn and potting shed and three car garage; all surrounded by stone walls, mature trees, and perennial gardens. The home has a history tied to Abraham Pierson’s family. Pierson was the founder and first president of Yale University. Relax outside and tend to your spacious vegetable beds with the help of nature’s perfect sun and soil. Or sit back on the patio and enjoy views of a tranquil pond and beyond to unspoiled agricultural land. Once inside the main house you’ll immediately be transported back in time. Take in the many period elements such as the 3 working fireplaces that complement the home’s central air and forced air heat, wide board floors and beautifully paneled walls. The back entryway opens to an oversized keeping room with access to the home’s small but quite efficient kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large dining room with fireplace, perfect for formal entertaining or informal gatherings.
