“THE GOVERNOR’S MANSION” circa 1896 Home of Governor Lorrin A. Cooke 1896-1899 is located in Winsted Connecticut in a historic neighborhood on .4 acres, just a half-mile to beautiful Highland Lake for swimming, boating, and fishing. Just blocks to dining and shopping. The grand house offers 3,890 sq. ft. living space, providing five bedrooms and two and one-half baths with 1,500 sq. ft. additional space on the third floor for expansion. The opulent entrance hall is filled with period detail and opens to formal rooms with a sweeping staircase to the second floor. Each room pulls you into the next and offers multiple living choices. The historical significance of the home is profound. There is a large carriage house, an inground pool, and beautifully appointed grounds. The home will require your personal refurbishing and is well worth the effort.
