Description & Features

Picture-perfect stone and wood Cape Cod with detached cottage, built by acclaimed architect Frank H. Bissell for his personal residence in 1900. Listed among the Historic Silvermine houses, the land was later divided to develop the 7 additional homes on private Bissell Lane. Bissell's architectural legacy includes designing the former Norwalk City Hall (now Norwalk Museum) and Washington Village in SONO. For this house, Bissell was ahead of his time by repurposing the wood from the property's original barn to add character in the main house design. The dramatic great room is the owner's favorite, with a big stone wood-burning fireplace, high ceiling, exposed rafters, and all-day natural light through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Updated kitchen and baths, mechanicals, paint and newer Cedar roof, ready for move-in. Den on main floor with full bath could be 3rd BR, and sweet 3-room cottage offers tremendous flexibility for guests, extended family, or as a studio/office/gameroom. The estate-like 4 acres including the Silvermine Brook, provides ever-changing scenery in all seasons and has been designated as a Certified Wildlife Habitat. Come see what makes this property so special, and write the next chapter of this lovely home's history!
