Seize this once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Wallingford History! This lovely historic home is available for the first time since 1993. The home has been lovingly cared for by its current owners and many of its charming historic features have been maintained. From the random width plank flooring in the living room, to the oversized windows and high ceilings, this home is surprisingly spacious for its era. The history of this home began in 1857 when renowned local brick maker Samuel Briggs built it as a school for the children of his workers. After the school closed in 1897 the home was sold and fully renovated as a private residence by 1902. Unlike many homes of its time, the entire home was constructed of brick and includes a double brick wall that provides insulation. The quality of the construction is apparent in every room. The conversion from school to residence also created larger bedrooms, closets and baths than homes of this age typically feature.. Central air has been installed and a new HVAC system was purchased in 2018. Best of all, there is hardwood flooring throughout the home and since much of the flooring has been covered, it is presumed to be in excellent condition. Take advantage of the rare opportunity to make this historic home your own!
