Updated Historical Colonial. 4 Bedrooms. 3 Baths. 5 Fireplaces. 2-car Detached Garage. Boxwood Gardens. Brook. 2.35± Acres.

Only occasionally a vintage home stands out like this one, this is the one. This home has been updated throughout the centuries and has kept the historical integrity. Reputed to have been a dairy farm with orchards and a cider mill, the extensive acreage has been separated but the area remains similar as to when it was the original farm. To this day there is a secret boxwood garden in which the house was named “Boxwood Glen” and another formal boxwood garden has been added. The regal maple trees have produced award-winning syrup. Many named varietal trees comprise the level lawn and garden area. Twelve over twelve windows are one of the architectural features along with the center chimney with five fireplaces, original keeping room fireplace with bee hive oven and a stunning post and beam living room and three season porch. Re-laid chestnut floors, all floor joist and walls were reinforced. This home is not only beautiful, it is solid to the core; an engineer’s dream they say. There is a gently flowing stream on the south side with the back of the property flanked by Kettletown State Park. For your recreational enjoyment Jackson Cove is a short walk down the lane. Located minutes to not only Oxford center, but to Southbury’s exit 14 and its shopping. Enjoy the beautiful gardens and the quietness of the land. You will be thrilled you found this to be your home.
