203 Redding Road, Redding, CT

Fabulous Equestrian Property

Originally owned by (William) Billy Comstock, this piece of Redding history housed a hat factory and later became the first Redding Post Office in 1810. The vintage farmhouse is a throwback to a more genteel time with multiple decks, porches and comfortable design oozing with charm and whimsy. Exposed hand-hewn wood beams, wide-plank floors, true divided light windows and a gorgeous double-sided flagstone fireplace are just a few of the unique features of this amazing property.

Multiple points of entry make it easy to configure the home to serve you best. The front entrance opens to a spacious dining room, that calmly anchors the (east?) side of the house, while entering through the mudroom leads you to the kitchen. The kitchen offers a large amount of storage including a pantry, a butcher-block island, farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances and a Garland industrial gas range with a griddle and double ovens. Flowing seamlessly into the breakfast and living rooms, the home offers a surprisingly modern and open floor plan, while retaining its character throughout.

Cosy Retreats
The main floor master bedroom soars with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, a private deck and a unique loft with industrial styling. A spacious master bath includes a deep clawfoot soaking tub, vessel sink, and walk-in shower with a rain head. Upstairs, four large bedrooms with coved ceilings and wide-board hardwood floors accompany a central sitting room and a sunroom with wall-to-wall windows. A full guest bath is also found here.

Outdoor Lifestyle
An expansive deck gives way to a beautiful in-ground pool surrounded by perennial plantings. Completely fenced, the property enjoys privacy screening from Redding Road, a firepit, split rail fencing of the pastures and gorgeous turn-of-the-century stone walls. With over 3 acres of cleared pastures and paddocks, two barns, two horse stalls and a riding ring, the property is second-to-none. A separate two-bedroom cottage is available as a rental property or for personal use.

Located only minutes to Georgetown and a little over an hour to New York City, this property is perfect for equestrians or someone who wants a little piece of private paradise.
