Classic Greek Revival. 4 Bedrooms. Brick Fireplace. Fenced Yard. Patio. Many Upgrades. Home Business Potential. Prime Location.

As you travel down Rt. 6 on Main Street this classic Greek Revival stands out as it sits across from the North Congregational Church of Woodbury. Although this house was originally built in 1840 don’t let its age deceive you. Over the past 12 years this house has had many upgrades. Most recently an entire new roof with shingles by Heritage and a new gutter system with leaf guards. Two new insulated garage doors and openers from the Overhead Door Courtyard Collection. Two new insulated storm doors with dual closures and two screens by ProVia. A new custom-made insulated attic hopper window by ProVia. The house is air tight. Finally, an antique stone patio was added which features two stone stairways. All is within code with zoning and the Woodbury Historical Society.
Historically this was the original Peck House and was purchased by Dr. H.S. Karrman. Dr. Karrman practiced medicine in the first floor office just off of the main entry and his family resided there for 50 years. In the 1970’s actress Barbara Britton, used this house as her country home and restored and sold antique carousel horses here in her spare time. Her children played in the full finished and insulated attic.
As you enter the house you are greeted by the original stairway, original wide plank floors and Dr. Karrman’s office that has a full bath. Renovated by Ms. Britton, the main living space has the open concept that all homebuyers love. It features a three-sided gas brick fireplace, original beams, all wood floor and a wide modern staircase with a landing that offers an easier access to the second level. The second level has three bedrooms which offers two full baths. One of the bedrooms features the original wide plank floors. Storage areas can be found all over the house. Every window in the house is made by Anderson and can be pulled out to clean. The house has an updated electrical system with a circuit breaker. Also, the original entrance to the basement can be used as a wine cellar.
The house is located in a two mile radius of all three schools, two town parks and across the street from the town square. The current owners have raised children here and have recently received town approval for a home business. They are retiring and motivated to sell.
Please feel welcome to view this iconic house in the Woodbury Historic District at your convenience. This house is in move-in condition and all it needs is a new owner to make it their home.
