Colonial Home Primitive Decor Ideas

My husband and I finally bought our first home over the weekend after spending several years looking for a home which suited us perfectly, and along that search, one listing really caught our eye in Litchfield Connecticut.  Being that it was out of our price range, we couldn't even consider it, but found the interior to be closely preserved to the time it was constructed.  In some ways as you look through the pictures it can give a glimpse into how life could have been in the 18th century.  The fireplace in the kitchen was especially interesting because they used a fireplace to boil water for their cooking.  The painted furniture and period antiques are especially interesting because they fit the time period quite accurately.  This antique estate was built in 1775 and classically renovated while maintaining the home's primitive integrity. The estate sits on 54 Acres, and is located in one of the most sought after towns in New England. The kitchen and bathrooms were updated through the years.   The home was restored by artisans, and serves as an example of the post revolutionary period.  IF the rooms were repainted they are exceptionally close to the paint colors of it's time.  The home features four beautiful fireplaces, four bedrooms, three baths, three staircases, and wonderful light throughout it's formal and informal spaces. The home also looks as if it was built along side a year round steam running through the property, which would make sense for every day living in the 18th century. The property is offered for sale at $1,795,000 through New England Real Estate Company
