ROMANTIC SYMMETRY in Falls Village CT. A rare find…. this Victorian with its striking slate Mansard roof, the windows inset allowing for a spacious third floor/attic filled with light that can be renovated for a large studio or family room . Nostalgic Perfection with “Second Empire” symmetrical architectural style, sophisticated and simplistically squared off, is highlighted by the bays. The home has overhanging eaves with decorative brackets and ornate door and window hoods. Typical of a Mansard style home, second story windows are arranged in pairs over entrances and balconies with floor to ceiling glass paned doors. The main entrance is flanked by pilasters with an elaborate canopy and double doors. There is an abundance of drip irrigated perennial gardens overflowing with a seemingly endless variety of plants, fragrant flowering shrubs, majestical yew trees “where one can sit and do their wondering”, elephant magnolia, rhododendron, hydrangea, beds of peonies and a blueberry patch! Rekindle delightful evenings of entertaining filled with laughter and good wine. Share afternoon tea in the gardens. Reconnect with the romance of life…this is your queue! Historic Falls Village, home of the “Great Falls” with superb local restaurants & cafes with farm to table fare and within minutes of the Berkshires, 30 minutes to Hudson Valley and 2 hours to NYC.
