This 1845 brick house is nicely situated in the hub of Norwich and yet enjoys remarkable privacy, most especially from the rear deck and lawn. That vista looks out over bucolic land including conserved acreage. The current owner undertook a substantial redesign of the kitchen and bathrooms, as well as enhancing landscaping and stonewalls. This former schoolhouse benefits from its exceptional location: set back further from Main St. than most of the surrounding historic homes; less than 1/3 mile to Dan & Whit’s and the rest of Norwich’s attractive commercial center, and just over a mile to the Dartmouth Green. Although Interstate 91 is quite nearby, the road noise from that highway passes over 248 Main St. because of topography. The property is contiguous to the 36-acre Norwich Nature Area Trails with its mile0-long loop trail. The detached, 4500 s.f., 1.5 story, antique shingled barn behind the main house could either be restored or replaced by a new auxiliary building, perhaps maintaining some of its original stone foundation. The generously sized L-shaped living room (and more) can be heated by the freestanding, gas fireplace. On the first floor there is a bedroom as well as a full bath. The light in the two bedrooms on 2nd floor is augmented by skylights. The basement features a Buderus furnace, and newer electrical panels/wiring. A fine opportunity to own an attractive, well-located, historic home in the heart of an unusually handsome swath of Norwich properties.
