A circa-1765 landmark Wilton residence, fully renovated in 2001 is the exclusive listing of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, the firm announced on Friday. 

“This home is nothing short of an architectural masterpiece, featuring museum-quality craftsmanship and blending early American history with modern conveniences,” said Barbara Martin who has the listing in a release.

The 18th-century residence, which has been featured five times in the Wilton Town Calendar, was expanded in 1810 and completely renovated in 2001, maintaining original elements while incorporating high-end modern amenities. Design highlights include cedar shingle roofing with lead-coated copper over the kitchen and mudroom areas as well as chestnut flooring throughout.

The home was named for an Old Indian Campsite, "Rock House Farm," which stands not far from where Indian hunting parties once camped in a natural rock cave. Legend has it that early Indians, probably from the Taniteke tribe, camped under the rock ledge and fashioned shelter by tethering animal skins from long wooden poles.

Early settlers referred to the cave as the "Rock House", and for many years that section of Nod Hill was called Rock House District.

The property offers six manicured acres of both level and rolling land, with mature trees, gardens and an equestrian pasture. Adjoining the property are 14 acres of conservation meadowland.

Additional buildings on the property include a renovated circa-1940 two-bedroom guest cottage with three fireplaces and top-line appliances, stone potting shed with lead-coated copper roof built in 2005, three-bay fully heated garage and restored four-story, 5,000-square-foot, two-stall barn.

In total, the property has 7,534 square feet of living space, seven bedrooms, 7 1/2 baths, and 10 fireplaces with 3 beehive oven fireplaces.

The home is offered at $3,399,999. Contact: Barbara Martin, William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, Wilton Brokerage, BMartin@williampitt.com
