This iconic Chester home, built by George Smith began as a single farmhouse in 1874 as the property of Samuel Gledhill. In 1883, the property was sold to Wilbur Brothwell, the son of a woodworker who worked for P.T. Barnum. Brothwell is responsible for many of the home's unique features such as the third-floor tower and the beautifully preserved dark wood interiors. You can see his safe still securely closeted just inside the front door. The public rooms on the main level are spacious and sunfilled, particularly the large living room. The built-in china cabinet and the stained glass windows featured in the front stairwell are from the Barnum Estate. Beautiful hardwood floors grace most of the home, with a Brazilian Cherry inlay feature in the foyer and library. A portion of the main floor was originally used as a physician's office. It features 2 rooms (one currently used as a bedroom), half bath, and private entrance- potential for home office, first-floor primary suite, or inlaw suite. The second floor has an oversized primary suite, 2 additional bedrooms, and full bath. Up on the third floor, you'll find 2 more bedrooms, the "ping-pong table" room, and the tower with amazing views... a great spot for a yoga/meditation room or private office. With just under an acre, the property is conveniently located near town and a quick ride to the highway/amtrak. The barn is used as a garage and additional storage.
