Step into history with this unparalleled opportunity to own a piece of Guilford's rich heritage. Nestled in the historic Nut Plains section, this remarkable property holds a federal style home built in 1810 by Col. George Foote. While officially addressed as 829 Goose Lane, the front facade elegantly faces Foote's Bridge Road, where remnants of a seventeenth-century thoroughfare still exist. Situated on over 5 acres along the serene East River, opposite the East River Preserve, this estate offers a harmonious blend of tranquility and proximity to town. While this home may not boast the modern updates of contemporary residences, its unaltered state serves as a canvas for those seeking to preserve and restore historical authenticity. With two primary suites, five fireplaces, and a butler's pantry, the residence captures the essence of a time when craftsmanship and functionality were paramount. Step into the sunlit haven of the bright sunroom, a tranquil space overlooking the yard's oasis. The gunite pool and spacious patio offer a glimpse into a bygone era when outdoor spaces were designed for simple pleasures and gatherings. The property's incredible barns, including the iconic "English Barn," stand as silent witnesses to the agricultural history that shaped this land. For those with an appreciation for history and a vision for restoration, this property provides a rare opportunity to create a home that stands as a testament to Guilford's unique and timeless legacy.
