Woodhull House, Norwich

back to listings

This house stands on Broadway within the Little Plain Historic District. A two-story portico dominates the facade. Bold dentils trim the pedi­ment, which is supported by four Tuscan columns. Pilasters appear at the corners and between each vertical set of windows across the front. The house has a low hipped roof with a pair of chimneys on each side. The tri­angular window in the pediment appears to be original. Inside, the house has been divided into five apartments and was par­tially gutted in the process. However, a number of historic details remain including four fireplaces. One has a later Gothic Revival mantel, while the other three seem to be original. A two-story ell to the rear retains wide-board floors. The house has approximately 3,200 square feet with high ceil­ings. The building requires extensive repair and rehabilitation. The one-acre parcel includes a mid-nineteenth-century barn and an ample side yard. Price: asking $199,000, which is considered negotiable.Contact: Frederic Allyn, III, Allyn Associates, or 860-892-1335.
