About the Home

Come fall in love with this timeless and elegant 1765 pre-Revolutionary Colonial. At the foot of Greenfield Hill sits the Captain Ebenezer Hill house, a home loved by generations of the same family, for 252 years. Treasured and well-preserved, the original part of the home has large rooms with high ceilings and period craftsmanship throughout, such as 5 authentic extra-large fireplaces with carved-wood mantels and brick or stone hearths, original chestnut hardwood floors, lovely double French doors dividing Formal Dining and Living, period china cabinet built-in and storage closet, latched pull-down linen closets reminiscent of something you’d see on Downton Abby and carved wood-paneled walls. It’s a special treat to walk through this home and imagine living here back when it was built and throughout the decades. Captain Hill fought at Valley Forge with General George Washington, imagine! The current owners added a large Family/Breakfast Room off the Kitchen and Master Bedroom suite above, as well as Central Air, a 5-zone gas boiler and R-Value 49 Fiberglass insulation in attic. They’ve done numerous upgrades during their ownership, see Addendum. Upstairs is the Mstr Bedroom suite, plus 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Walk-up attic provides extra storage and there’s plenty of closet space. 2-car detached garage, vegetable and flower gardens, mature trees and a 200’ x 100’ electric-fence paddock complete the property. Put this home on your Must-See list, it’s a genuine treasure!
