  • Remarks addendumThe basement has tons of storage & a spacious tiled workroom with 27' of counter space & cabinets-perfect for a shop. Outside is a large deck ideal for entertaining, w/ hydrangeas, a flowering dogwood & a specimen Dawn Redwood-an ancient tree thought to be extinct. Bordering the lawn is a stone wall & an old growth forest that provides more privacy. Dead trees called “snags” were purposely left standing to provide shelter for birds & their young. Also a 12'x16' shed for storing garden gear. But in this house, beauty is more than skin-deep. Avoid high heating costs w/ 12” thick insulated walls & 18” thick insulated ceilings. Chose from 3 ways to heat the house: electric baseboard w/ thermostats in every rm, forced air w/ an oil furnace, & a wood burning stove w/ Casablanca fans that move heat throughout the house. 2 fans in the Great Room have a new motor, new controls & new circuit boards. There is also Central Air when you need it. The house exterior was re-stained in 2018 and the deck in 2019. With a new year roof, new chimney built from the roof up and newer gutters, there is little to do but relax. Plain vanilla on the outside, stunning on the inside! If you love privacy and seeing wild turkeys, woodpeckers, cardinals and more from your own home, check out this unique property located in affordable Bethany, whose town motto is “Rural is Beautiful.” One of Connecticut's best kept secrets only 75 miles from New York and 46 miles from Stamford, Bethany is a sleepy place surrounded by culture galore, with easy access to Routes 15 and 8. Walk to one of the oldest continuously operating farms in CT for freshly picked corn and seasonal veggies. Pick apples at friendly Drazen Orchards in nearby Cheshire. Check out the local flea market on Saturdays. Enjoy hikes on the Naugatuck Forest Trail. Golf at highly-rated Woodhaven Country Club. And enjoy award-winning theater, world-class museums and art galleries, and shopping in New Haven-only 10 miles away
