Romanced by the home’s historic and unique design, the current owners have loved restoring the home with a keen eye on the past. Restoring the home while paying tribute to its authentic architectural design features are reflective of an original commitment to artistry and quality that has stood the test of time. The final outcome; a home that has the integrity of its history rich past and modern conveniences for its future appeal. Here you will find historic architecture meeting modern luxury. Many of the home's original details have been lovingly maintained while seamlessly blending many creative design solutions to make those features relevant to modern day buyers. Enjoy the original canvas ceilings, marble façade fireplaces; coffered ceiling and mahogany moldings that are truly exquisite.

2016 Main Street is a stunning example of the integration of historical and modern architecture. With original period details evident at every turn, recent upgrades have only enhanced the elegance and charm of this truly unique historic Glastonbury estate home. The location, central to our coveted and revitalized Town center, will win you over. A short distance to shopping and popular restaurants makes a highly desirable place to call home.

Through the home’s double front doors with transom and beveled cut glass you will experience the hint of the quality workmanship inside. Enter into the home’s entrance hall and marvel at the detailed wood working adorning the grand floating staircase. Notice the original door casings and intricately detailed metal hinges with wood trims and moldings. The home’s formal living room features canvas ceiling; Italian marble fireplace mantle and stunning arched French door leading into the home’s formal dining room. The dining room is classically decorated and the coffered ceiling is magnificent. You will love the “wine-room’ attached to the dining room – perfect for hosting large functions this room also passes into the Baking Kitchen area. In fact you will find this home perfectly suited to host very large parties and dinners! The wall coverings in the dining room were selected during a party of 130 people! The classic blue and white coverings were the winner and a very good choice by all. The dining room also has an Italian marble fireplace mantle as does the kitchen that adjoins the dining room.


The kitchen is filled with natural light throughout most of the day and take advantage of such natural lighting with its adjoining plant room now called the herbarium. The ceiling is a canvas ceiling. The breakfast room which was originally the home’s sun room has played host to many a casual diner while enjoying the music played up at the Town’s Green…wafting in through the opened windows on a warm summers eve….you will love the granite center island in the kitchen and cooking with the gas stove but you will really appreciate the attached Baking Kitchen – complete with electric stove for baking of course and 2nd refrigerator.


From the dining room you will proceed to the music room with wood burning fireplace and canvas ceiling. From the music room you will find the attached office with wood burning fireplace and hung canvas ceiling. The attached hallway then leads to the guest ½ bath and a beautifully remodeled family room encased in window upon windows – All of these rooms on the first floor have hardwood floors. The family room has been remodeled from the studs in! There are 2 Forever doors that lead to the side porch. The new windows were added and designed to match the original style crank out windows. The bead board wood ceiling was kept in place and adds a richness and warmth to this stylish space. There is a back staircase up to the second floor which then leads to another stair case up to the 3rd floor suite. Plenty of closets to please everyone!


The main foyer staircase also leads to the second floor and features cranberry glass window that lights the front staircase landing. There is a door that leads to the staircase for the 3rd floor suite. The second floor had once been used as the home for Francis Hale’s daughter and this floor much like the first floor has seen its fair share of changes – re-purposing of rooms and modern updates. Adjacent to the landing is a picture perfect bedroom – one of 4 total on this floor. This room has a beautiful arched entry way to the windows, canvas ceiling and hardwood floors. The second bedroom on the floor has canvas ceiling, soothing spa colored tones and gorgeous hardwood floors. The hallway from this room leads to the master suite.


This master suite features 4 dedicated rooms! A sumptuousness bedroom with canvas ceiling also has the arched entry way to the bay of windows. From this room you will find a highly functioning dressing room surrounded by closets. The 2nd floor sun porch makes for the perfect place to read or have morning coffee as you get ready to greet your day. The master bathroom has been fully renovated - the owners gutted this room and raised the ceiling height. There is separate water closet and glass surround walk in shower with tile work – the all too famous red tub and double sink vanity. The room is as chic and stylish as it sounds! You can exit from here to get to the back stair case area (remember the one from the family room that will also lead to the 3rd floor?) From the main hallway, you will find the 4th bedroom with canvas ceiling, hardwood floors and soothing décor. The family bathroom is also on this floor and has been beautifully remodeled in 2014 with a glass stand up shower and tile surround and travertine flooring. Also on this floor is the laundry area.
The 3rd floor is a multi use space – perfect for long stay visitors, teens or an apartment – it features a living room; dining room area; kitchen with pantry; 2 large bedrooms, full bathroom and a laundry room!

The professionally landscaped grounds feature a lovely garden area; an outdoor fireplace; a Care-Free gazebo; a 3 car garage/barn that is fully trussed with a huge loft. The circular driveway is highly functional and quite pretty while it creates an island for plantings. The property includes acreage across the marsh and is about 3.79acres in total. Enjoy the occasional spotting of a beaver; wild turkeys and wood ducks. Much thought and planning went into the gardens with many perennials and roses on the property. You will absolutely fall in love with the rain chains – there are 3 in total and are very pretty to see during the rain and in the snowy season.
