Welcome to 28 Sperry Road! Originally built by John Gill in 1756 on State Street in Hamden, this house was dismantled piece by piece, marked, photographed, stored, and restored at this current location in Bethany in the 1960’s. It is a New England saltbox, boasting an enormous central chimney servicing 4 fireplaces. The first floor has an open floor plan; kitchen, living room, dining area with views of the surrounding garden and forest and 2 fireplaces, one with a woodstove. A great space for entertaining or for drinking a quiet morning cup. Amazing wide plank wood floors can be found through the home and all the main rooms on the first two floors have original 18th century paneling around the fireplaces. Exceptionally high ceilings for an 18th century saltbox and many windows give a feeling of spaciousness and light. In addition, there is a large 1st floor keeping room/library/office with a fireplace and a 1st floor full bathroom. A glass door to a deck brings you out to a 3.05-acre lot with mature perennial trees, shrubs and bulbs, flowering starting in early Spring. There is a greenhouse attached to the house for those who like to grow during all seasons which is designed to help provide solar heat for the home with custom vents.
