Our “Home Personality” home of the month: Set on 3.3 acres of the scenic Nod Road, this circa 1790 center chimney Colonial with its Neo-Greek period addition comprises rooms are generous in size, which each encompassing a sense of pride in its antiquity. The eleven rooms consist of five bedrooms and four baths, fireplace (one with a beehive oven) in both living and family rooms, and a sunken sunroom with brick herringbone flooring.  

George Rockwell’s “History of Ridgefield” mentions that in the mid 1800s, during the Civil War, the home was owned by the Betts family, which offered three members to the Union Army in the 7th Company, 5th Regiment.

Today this home and property provides peacefulness with its extensive and gracious flagstone patios, L-shaped 1,100-sq. ft. pool, and a charming guest cottage with a Great Room featuring a fireplace, and multiple servicing buildings.
