HPX Sept/Oct 2007-Pratt-Stannard House, Westbrook

Pratt-Stannard House
Westbrook (c. 1790)

This center chimney cape-style house, constructed in the last quarter of the 18th century, is located on a quiet cul-de-sac near the Menunketesuck River adjacent to 20 acres of undeveloped land being considered for incorporation into the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge.

The antique house is in untouched condition and has nine rooms, three fireplaces, and original 18th century woodwork, as well fine early 19th century woodwork from the Greek Revival period. The first floor kitchen retains the majority of its 18th century elements, including the hearth, bake oven, and the decorative fireplace surround. The rear of the house features an early 20th century ell that offers the potential for renovation as a modern kitchen or a master suite.

The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation and the National Trust for Historic Preservation recently supported professional structural and historical studies of the house that will aid future buyers in planning for preservation and restoration of the building.

The Pratt-Stannard house will be sold with 2 acres of surrounding land. For more information, contact Alicia Betty or Lisa Bassani at The Trust for Public Land, (203)-777-7367.

HPX July August 2007 Carriage Barn, Berlin

Berlin, Carriage Barn

This early 20 century carriage barn is offered for $1.00, if removed from the property. It has tongue and groove sheathing, a brick and field stone foundation and is interesting because it is built on a bank, which is rare for carriage barns. The barn’s roof is in disrepair and the floors have some rot, spurring the owner to try to find a new home for the building.

Potential buyers must demonstrate the ability to remove the barn from the site and reconstruct it on their own lot.
